IT'S NOT OVER YET !!

INCREDIBLE LEAGUE SEASON PROLONGED

 
What an incredible season we have just had in the Larne Pool League. For 14 Teams it is now over but for the Top 2 we have a Play Off match to look forward to, to decide where the Crown will go. Defending Champions Slippys Two will play Q.Stars after both teams finished level on points and level on the head to head results.

It had looked all over for Slippys after Q.Club Seniors took a point of them with a few weeks to go but to everyone's surprise Q.Stars also dropped a point at Station Bar from a leading 5-1 scoreline. Q.Stars had the tougher run in on paper but they dug deep winning their remaining matches to force the Play Off.

What a match this will be with Q.Stars cueists Crilly, Goudie, Millar, McMoran and more taking on Marcus, Nelson, Wallace, Rolston and more.

Date, time, venue and format will be confirmed as soon as possible.

A big thank you to everyone from the players to Team Managers and to the Committee who do a really fantastic job.

McKILLOP SHOWS HIS BOTTLE

A massve well done to Ryan McKillop. The Q.Club Seniors player is our 2023 / 2024 Player of the Year after it went down to the last fixture of the season. A three horse race ensued near the season end between Ryan, Dean McDonagh and Jason Voorhees. But it was Ryan who held his nerve best winning all his last 16 frames to be crowned Player of the Year.

BIG BRIAN 2024 LARNE LEAGUE INDIVIDUAL CHAMPION

It's big congratulations to Brian Crilly. The Q.Stars player is our new Larne Pool League Individual Champion after a fantastic day of play in the Q.Club. Brian adds his name to a list of top players to claim the coveted trophy and makes it a season double as he also won the prestigious Richard Bowen Memorial Individual. The big man was barely troubled until the Final but what a match 2002 Winner Shaun McAlister gave him, Shaun led 6-3 with four to play and was odds on to become winner once again but Brian never gives up and he dug very deep to reel off the final four frames and ran out 7-6 winner.

LEWIS & ROLSTON DOUBLE DELIGHT !!

It’s a big congratulations to Aaron Rolston and Wayne Lewis who have become the 2024 Larne Pool League Doubles winners after a fine evening of Blackball Pool in the Q Club.

From an initial 50 entries the finals night started with 16 teams left and a strong field of potential winners. Highlight of the night being perhaps the last 16 match between eventual winners Lewis/Rolston who overcame Gerry McCorry and Johnny Nelson 4-3 in a match that saw 6x 8-Ball clearances. Strong showings were also seen from the young duo of Jack Carson/Ryan Scott who reached the semi finals and Nick McClay/Darren Witherspoon who reached the Quarters.
