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.

Congratulations to Portcullis 3 who are this year's Division 2 Cup Champions, after a narrow 7-6 win over Bowlers 1. Well done to Liam Scott and his team, commiseration to Jim Cowie and his team. In another day it could easily have been the other way around.
It was a see-saw affair, similar to last year final and none of the teams could establish a lasting lead. After ten frames both teams could not be separated which continued after twelve frames. The decider saw both teams have chances but Portcullis 3 were then presented with the breakthrough to win, where Lindsay Palser potted the winning black ball to win Portcullis the match.
Thanks are extended to Richard and Brenda of the Rams Heid who kindly hosted this year's final.
