The 3 C's Team with Clare McQuiston, Manager of Jigsaw NI
In October 2014, the third ‘Andy Ross’ Boccia tournament took place, in memory of the late Andy Ross, a regular attender at Boccia NI events and husband of former Boccia NI committee member Nessie Ross. With 15 teams competing from across Belfast and Newtownabbey, the tournament was very closely fought. All teams played against three other teams with the top two teams qualifying to get into the final. The final was between Ardrigh Lads (a team from Ardrigh Fold) and Jigsaw NI team – The 3 C’s. This was another tight match with the 3 C’s coming out on top at the end. This means that The 3 C’s have won two out of the three ‘Andy Ross’ tournaments. Clare McQuiston, Manager of Jigsaw NI, said “This is a brilliant achievement for the 3C’s. The group have great fun at their weekly boccia session and it is obvious that they are improving all the time. Well done and congratulations to all the teams, especially “The 3 C’s.”
The Andy Ross Boccia tournament 2014 took place on 23rd October 2014 in the Spectrum Centre. All teams enjoyed their day out and Jigsaw NI would like to thank Boccia NI for organising the tournament.
