Henry reaches bowls final

Jeremy Henry has reached the final of the men's singles lawn bowls in Manchester.

The Ballymoney man is now guaranteed a silver medal at least after defeating New Zealander Mike Kernaghan in Saturday's semi-final.

Henry, who carried the Northern Ireland flag in the opening ceremony, recorded a 21-13 victory to go through to Sunday's final.

His opponent in the decider will be South African John Donnelly who beat Robert Weale of Wales 21-17 in the other semi-final.

Henry had reached the semi-finals by beating Eddie Nkole of Zambia 21-11 earlier on Saturday.

There was disappointment, however, for Northern Ireland's Margaret Johnston in the women's singles on Saturday.

The 59-year-old from Bellaghy, a Commonwealth gold medal winner in 1994, lost her quarter-final to Marlene Castle of New Zealand by 21-8.
