Congratulations to Shotz 1B who are this year’s 4-Man Team Champions. The team led by captain Keir Hamilton also included Nick Denson, John Fotheringham, Roy Middleton and Steve Hamilton, who defeated Shotz 3A in the final by a convincing 5-0 scoreline. Shotz 3A were led by Michael Emslie, with James Curran, Peem Twaddle and Craig Sandford in the team.
Thank you to all of the players who attended tonight and it is hoped everyone enjoyed the event. Thanks are also extended to everyone at Shotz for hosting and sponsoring.
The deadline for entries is Friday 21st April, entry remains £10 per team. All entries are added to the Charity pot and will be handed over to the ADPL chosen charity.
The format will likely be similar to last years, with a straight knockout and a plate event for all first round losing teams. This guarantees at least two matches for each team. Again, it will all depend on the interest levels.
The 2017 Cliffburn Singles attracted a field of 60 entries. The day went well and the final produced a magnificent standard of pool from both players, Ryan Fleming and Iain Soutar. Unfortunately one of these players had to be defeated and commiserations go to Iain, who was edged out 5-3. Congratulations to this year’s winner Ryan Fleming who adds this to his recent Portcullis Singles win.
Thanks are extended to all of the players who attended and also to our sponsor Bobby Din, along with his staff.

St Tams are the 2016-17 Division 2 Cup Champions after a 7-3 win against Cliffburn (2) tonight. Cliffburn set the pace taking a 3-1 lead and looked to be out of sight but they were pegged back and St Tams pushed on to secure the win with the first double.
Congratulations to Mark Edgar and his team. Unlucky to Josh Longmuir and his team.
Thanks are extended to Steven and Leanne Scott at the Stag for hosting this years final.

Last Saturday saw the eighth annual playing of the Portcullis Pool Singles Competition. The event was won by Ryan Fleming who defeated Scott MacEwan 5-3 in the final in a comeback win after being behind 3-1. Commiserations to Scott who had a good run on the day. Beaten semi-finalists were Darrin Warren and John Fotheringham. Thanks go to the new proprietors of the Portcullis, Chris and Jakki Henderson for sponsoring the event and to all the bar staff for looking after the players. Final thanks to all the players without whom these events would not be possible.
Congratulations to Colin Brown who walked away as the 2016 Shotz Singles Champion. Colin is a very experienced player but had to dig deep in the final. Alex Mason edged him all the way and lost out in a final frame decider. A massive well done to Alex too for his efforts, a brilliant run on the day.
Thanks are extended to hosts Shotz and their staff for their assistance throughout the day.
Congratulations to Glen McEvoy (pictured left in the photo) who is this years Grassroots Champion. Glen defeated Chris Gray (pictured right) in the final. A massive well done to Chris though, a great effort by him on the day.
Thanks are extended to host Bobby Din and his staff at the Cliffburn Hotel.
A final thanks for the event TD, Scott MacEwan, who stood in at short notice and done a fantastic job.

The ADPL Masters was held last weekend at the Cliffburn Hotel. This event is contested by the top sixteen players in Arbroath based upon the tournament ranking structure. Gary McLeish won this year’s event, defeating Mark Donld in the final. Gary played flawless all day and was focused from the get-go. Congratulations to him on his win and likely not his last tournament win either. A special mention for Mark too though, himself having a fantastic event but just running out of steam in the final. Mark took some noteable scalps during the day and should be proud of his achievements. Thanks are extended to the hosts at the Cliffburn and all of the staff.
