McCarthy strolls to 2018 Richard Bowen Memorial victory


At the end of a fantastic day of Blackball Pool in the Q.Club, Ronan McCarthy (Pigeon Club) put his name on the Richard Bowen Individual Memorial Trophy winning twenty nine frames for the loss of only six on his path to success. A never say die effort by Kenny English (Ibrox) took him all the way to the Final but McCarthy was buzzing and ran out five frames on the trot from 1-1 to become 2018 Champion. Lots of great performances by many players but a special mention for 14 year old Ryan Marcus who reached the Semi Final taking out some big names along the way only to run out of steam against Runner Up English.
