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.

This year the ADPL presented a cheque for £500 to Macmillan Cancer Support at Finals Day.
The cheque was handed over jointly to the local representatives by President Gordon Smith
and Treasurer Roy Middleton, with the pool players watching on.
Congratulations to Greg Alexander who successfully defended his Lomond Leisure Cliffburn Singles title, defeating Gary McLeish 5-2 in the final. Commiserations to Gary who ran into Greg just at the wrong time, Gary should still be proud of his efforts after playing consistently well all day.
A massive thanks go to the sponsors of the event, Bobby Din (Cliffburn), along with John and Michelle of Lomond Leisure. Lomond donated two cues and cases where one was sold on the day via a football card and raised £200 towards the ADPL charity pot.
Thank you to all of the players that contributed, Bobby of the Cliffburn won the first set. The second will be sold at a later event.
In addition, a huge thanks to all the players who competed.
A full list of results is available on the ADPL website.

This year’s event attracted some twenty-three teams and saw a change to the format with a ‘penatly shootout’ introduced if teams were tied after the singles stage. Congratulations to Portcullis 1B (Ian Anderson, Gordon Dickson, Scott MacEwan and Steve Webster), who are this year’s 4-Man Team Champions after defeating Shotz 1A (Mark Donald, Greg Alexander, David Jack and Roy Middleton) in an exciting final on penalties. The score was four frames all and required a penalty shoot-out to determine a winner. Portcullis eventually winning five-three on penalties.
The Committee hope that all the players involved enjoyed the new format and any feedback would be greatly appreciated. They also thank all the players who attended and contributed a great sum of £230 towards the charity pot for the end of season presentation. The charity is still to be decided for this year.
Thanks are also extended to Shotz for allowing us to host the event in the hall and who have also kindly sponsored the event and will provide trophies for the winners at Finals Day.
