ADPL Masters 2015

The tournament format offered plenty of pool for everyone and I think I speak for most of the players in saying it was a great success. The group stages produced a mixture of results and the full list of them are available by logging into the website and viewing the Arbroath Master 2015 forum thread.

Graham Dunbar won the Plate Event, 3-2, after a determined Josh Longmuir missed a difficult black for 3-0!!! Well done Graham, unlucky Josh.

In the Main Event, Paddy Nicoll booked his place in the final with a 5-1 win over fellow teammate, Roy Middleton. Paddy was aiming to retain the title he won when this event was last played out and wasn't prepared to surrender it without a fight. David Jack faced Alex Cargill in the other semi-final, with Alex hot off the heels of wins against Graham Dunbar and Gordon Smith he was full of confidence. However, David was not to be halted and won the match 5-0. Unlucky to both Roy and Alex for reaching the semi-finals.

The Finalists. Paddy started the group stage well and finished undefeated, where David had managed to secure top spot on frame difference. Both Paddy and David had played some excellent pool throughout the day. David won the final with a 6-1 scoreline. Congratulations to David, commiserations to Paddy.

Thanks, again, are extended to Bobby Din and his staff at the Cliffburn for making us feel welcome and their hospitality.

Fixture Lists
This years glossy fixture lists have been distributed around the various venues, with the exception of Letham, which will be with them this week.

With that in mind, no further texts shall be sent out regards fixtures for the league campaign, please refer to the fixture lists in the venue, on the website or the Arbroath Herald.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the various sponsors who have taken ads on this years lists, the continued and new support is most appreciated.
Stag 2 Withdrawing from Div 2
Please note, Stag 2 have informed the ADPL Committee tonight that they will no longer be competing this season. Any fixture against Stag 2 will be awarded to the opponents as a 12-0 walkover.

It is very unfortunate the timing of this news, which leaves no option but to proceed with the fixtures as published.

Please accept our apologies for this.

Portcullis Singles 2015

Well done to David Jack and unlucky to Greg Alexander. Without a doubt the two best players on the day overall.

Thanks to all the players who attended the event (50 in total with only 3 no-shows). In the current climate with a huge amount of pool choices on offer, its good to see local events still being supported.

Thanks in particular go to the Portcullis through Neil, Jackie and all the bar and catering staff for continuing to sponsor the event and look after the players needs.
