Athletics: Morrissey opens us bid

JOHN MORRISSEY will take heart from his recent form when he begins his bid to earn place in the US Junior Open tomorrow.

Morrissey's most recent competitive action saw him advance to the quarter-finals of the World Youth Olympic Games in Singapore and, if he manages to replicate the quality of those performances, he will stand an excellent chance of winning the three matches necessary to advance from the qualifying competition.

Sam Barry also has good form behind him as he makes his debut in the competition, having taken three good scalps to advance to the quarter-finals of the European Junior championships in July.
