Gers title hopes are still very much alive and kicking in the Larne & District Pool League after a fantastic result away to fellow title challengers Q.Pool. Stuart Houston's side were in trouble after the second session trailing 6-4 but four racks in the final set gave them an 8-7 advantage going into the Play Off frame.

Meanwhile League leaders Pigeon Club struggled early doors but their strength in depth eventually seen them to a 9-6 success to stay in top spot. Ibrox consolidated fourth spot with a comfortable win at home to Station Bar and Feathers recorded a similar scoreline seeing off a gutsy Thatch Rockets side who were holding their own at 4-4 after eight frames.

Third team into the hat were Ibrox, who trailed 2-3 but eventually progressed courtesy of  an 8-5 win over a never say die Rubys Stars. The fourth and final team into the draw are Ally Law'sThatch Rockets though it was heartbreak for Freewheelers as they went down by the odd frame 8-7, Jean McIlroy being the hero of the hour winning the fifteenth and deciding rack for Rockets.

Q.Pool's stay at the top of the Larne & District League was short lived as Pigeon Club won the big top of the table clash tonight. And what a match it was, Pigeon raced into a 4-0 lead then lost five on the trot but then won the final six racks to close the match out at 10-5. Two strong teams included the newly crowned Northern Ireland Champion Pat McAnally for Q.Pool and the legend that is Ronan McCarthy for Pigeon. Amazingly McCarthy didnt get a shot in open play in his three frames played, he was dished on two dry breaks and broke and dished against on his other, but it's great to have top cueists come down to play in and strengthen our League. With Gers having a bye this week Ibrox had the chance to overtake them but they had to be content with a point courtesy of a play off frame win by Robert Hawkins in a very exciting 8-8 draw away to Q.Club who at one stage trailed 1-5. Hugo Manson's Feathers were also held at Station Bar, with Micky O'Boyle playing a captains role in Frame 16 for the Railway men. Paul Smyth's St Comgall's registered another two League points with a solid 10-5 home win over Rubys Stars and Blues make it three wins on the trot after after storming back from 3-5 down to win 9-6 agains Jordan Peoples's Freewheelers. Last but not least Thatch Rockets missed the chance to move of the bottom going down 6-9 at home to Clonlee who move up to 11th leapfrogging Freewheelers.

The match of the night was up in the Rangers Club where Stuart Houston's Gers took a point off League leaders Pigeon Club. In a fantastic game Pigeon looked to be heading for both points as they raced into a 6-2 lead but Gers have a resilience about them this season and reeled off five racks on the trot to lead 7-6. Pigeon rallied again to take the next two and force a play off frame but it was Gers' young Ryan Marcus who was the hero of the hour when he potted the final black off the night to earn his side a valuable point. Feathers had too much for Neil McFaul's Q.Club, at 3-3 Hugo Manson's team took seven from the final nine racks to register two points on the table. Q.Pool were untroubled by St Comgalls and ran out 11-4 winners, a result that puts them level on points with the Pigeon Club at the top. What a match it should be next week as the top two clash for the first time this season. Blues move up to eighth after a solid 9-6 away win at Thatch Rockets, Alex Irvine's side were never behind in the fixture as they complete back to back wins. And last but not least Micky O'Boyle's Station Bar put two welcome points on the board at Clonlee. The home sides recent good form looked to be continuing as they led 4-1 but Station finally got out of the traps to win the match by 10-5.

Larne lads come back as Champions



It's very well done to local lads Ryan Marcus, 14 and Aaron Rolston, 16. The duo have just come back from Malta as Nations Cup Under 18 Champions. They were part of the Northern Ireland Under 18 Team that won the European Blackball Association Nations Cup of Pool trophy. Managed by Q.Club proprietor Alex Irvine they joined forces with Ciaran Taggart (Omagh), Galvin McDermott (Omagh), Oisin Wallace (Omagh) and Adam Freeburn (Limavady) to lift the Title.

After safely negotiating their way out of the group the lads met England in the Semi Final where in a nailbiting deciding frame Northern Ireland made it through by 13-12. Lying in wait in the Final were Group Winners Wales but the lads weren't going to be denied and in another very exciting match they won 13-10 to become Champions.

Aaron also lifted gold in the Under 18 Doubles Event with partner Adam Freeburn and Ryan reached the Final of the Under 15 Individual.

It's definitely a case of hard work paying off, Aaron and Ryan spent many hours on the green baize perfecting their skills in the Q.Club and beyond leading up to the event.

The top five teams all won so no change at the summit of the Q.Club sponsored Larne & District Pool League. Leaders Pigeon Club laboured for a while against St Comgalls, but moved up through the gears to run out 11-4 winners on the night. Gers were similar early doors as they seen a 4-1 lead disappear at home to Freewheelers, but six out from the next seven frames gave Stuart Houston's team another vital two points. William Irvine's Q.Pool were untroubled by bottom side Thatch Rockets winning 12-3 but Ibrox had to fight all the way as Francie Gribben's Clonlee full of confidence from their shock result last week looked to cause another upset. Ibrox Captain Richard Todd was mighty relieved when his team got over the line. In the derby match in the Q.Club it was Wayne Lewis for the second time this season who secured both points by taking the play off frame, this time against The Blues in a keenly contested fixture. Last but not least Rubys and Station Bar had to settle for a point a piece in an 8-8 draw. Rubys had Drew Niblock to thank as he won Frame 15 & then the all important 16th.

We usually start our reports at the top of the table, but this week it would amiss of us not to start at the bottom. If any local League betting enthusiasts were told they could have had 25s, 33s or even 50/1 on lowly Clonlee travelling to Feathers Pool Team and coming away with both points they wouldnt have put a penny on it. But that's just what Francie Gribben's team did in one of the biggest upsets in a long time in our League. Everyone played their part for Clonlee but hero of the hour was Corey Burleigh who won the decisive play off frame to give himself three from four on the night. At the top its as you were with Pigeon Club staying a point ahead of the chasing pack courtesy of a 12-3 win at Freewheelers. Q.Pool also won convincingly by a 12-3 scoreline at home to Station Bar to stay in third spot. Both Rangers Club teams had comfortable 11-4 win against lowly opposition, Ibrox at home to Blues and Gers away to Thatch Rockets. Gers win keeps them right up there in second spot. Lastly but not least Q.Club seen off Rubys Stars by 10-5 to sit four points from top spot.

Q.Pool slipped off top spot on the League table after crashing 10-5 away to Ibrox. Highlight of the night was an incredible finish from Stephen Johnston which drew applause from both sets of players. Down at the Q.Club itself Stuart Houston's Gers had to win the last three racks including a Dean McDonagh play off frame to keep well within touching distance of the summit. With Q.Pool and Q.Club both dropping points Bryan McWhirter's Pigeon Club team took full advantage and moved clear at the top, though they too had to win the last three frames of the night against a resilient Station Bar side for 9-6. Feathers laboured but eventually took both points courtesy of an Alan Johnston play off frame win against a very determined Rubys Stars team whilst Blues registered their first win off the season, a comfortable 11-4 success away to basement team Clonlee. Last but not least Paul Smyth's St Comgalls side also registered their first win of the season though they had to win six from the last seven frames after an impressive start from Thatch Rockets.

Q.Pool sit proudly on top of the Larne & District Pool League after a pulsating 9-7 win over Feathers.

Hero of the hour was Gary Wallace who won Frame 16 to make it four from four on the night. Meanwhile Champions Thatch were also involved in a titanic struggle against Neil McFaul's Q.Club team. Thatch took the initiative heading into the play off frame and they led 8-7 but Q.Club's Aaron Leslie was very relieved when his opponent potted both black and white to level the scores at 8-8, both teams gaining a hard earned point. Station Bar made it three wins from three fixtures as they took the last four frames to beat St Comgalls by 10-5 whilst in the Rangers Club derby match Stuart Houston's Gers continue to have the upper hand over stablemates Ibrox as they registered a solid 9-6 success. Jordan Peoples' Freewheelers notched up their first win with a convincing 10-5 victory over second bottom Thatch Rockets, secured by a six frame burst at the business end of the match. Last but not least Nick McClay's Rubys Stars moved onto three points on the table with an easy 12-3 win against basement team Clonlee. Alex Irvine's Blues had a bye this week.

Pigeon Club overcame another tough hurdle after last weeks Play Off Frame win over Feathers, this time they seen off Richard Todd's Ibrox team. The match was tight with Pigeon leading 5-4 after Frame 9 but Bryan McWhirter's team moved up a gear to close the match out with a 10-5 win to move on to six points at the top of the League table. Also on six points are William Irvine's Q.Pool and Neil McFaul's Q.Club, with 12-3 and 9-7 respective wins, Q.Pool away to Clonlee and Q.Club at home to St Comgalls. Wayne Lewis was the hero of the hour for Q.Club as he won Frame 16 to give his team both points. Feathers had a convincing 11-4 win over Gers whilst Station Bar eased to a 10-5 win at home to Freewheelers. Last but not least, Blues and Rubys shared the points after an 8-8 draw. Blues' Ryan Scott looked to have given his side both points after potting the eight in the Play Off Frame but watched agonisingly as the cue ball trickled slowly towards the centre pocket and dropped in much to the relief of opponent Sean Davison.
