2016 Lomond Leisure Cliffburn Singles

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.

2016 ADPL Charity 4-Man Team

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.

Division 2 Cup Final

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.

2015-16 Portcullis Singles

This year’s final was contested by Steve Webster and Graham Dunbar. The final was decent standard and kept the spectators interested throughout. Steve drew first blood and followed it up with the next two to take a 3-0 lead. Graham got his account up and running in the next for 3-1 but Steve hit straight back in the next to restore his 3 frame advantage. A chance to wrap up the win went begging and Graham closed the gap to 4-2. This galvanised him into a flurry of brilliant potting and he took two great finishes back-to-back to force the match into a decider. Steve had won the lag and had the honour of breaking and proceeded to respond with his own break and dish to take the title and £170 prize money.

Congratulations to Steve and commiserations to Graham for a spirited comeback. He got £80 for his efforts.

Special thanks as always go to Jackie, Neil, Kris and all the bar staff at the Portcullis for looking after the players.

2016 Tayside Singles

The 2016 Tayside Singles attracted 119 entries for this year’s competition. A fantastic field of entries, with a wealth of talent on display.

Scott Dunbar (Perth) clinched the title by five frames to four, defeating David Jack (Arbroath). The final was a phenomenal standard and Scott looked to have it wrapped up when he raced in to a four-two lead. David wasn’t ready to give up the title he won last year just yet and fought back to four frames all. Unfortunately he couldn’t get that elusive last frame and Scott took his chance when it arrived. Congratulations to Scott. A special mention for David though, his fourth Tayside Singles final in a row, a fantastic achievement in itself.

Thanks are extended to Shotz and their staff for their kind sponsorship and friendly hospitality throughout the day.

ADPL Grassroots 2015-16

There were 67 entries for this year's ADPL Grassroots tournament, all of whom were aiming to become the 2015/16 Champion. A broad range of youth and experienced players was on show and it was good to see some of the younger players take their chances when presented.

A good final, witnessed by those that stayed back to watch, was played by two players who reached it by playing and defeating good, experienced opposition on their way. Congratulations to Michael Bastow, who defeated Jamie Robertson 5-4 in the final and scooped the first trophy of the ADPL Season.

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.
