WELL DONE ED


With our League season having ended, so has our Player of the Year event and it's congratulations to Greenisland Galacticos cueist Ed McDowell on topping the table ahead of many fine players.

The ever consistent Andy Arbuthnot from Whitehead Trojans was in the Silver position with Scorpion Paul Kerr who had won the title for two out of the previous three seasons in Bronze

Big thanks to all the players who played in our League during the 2019-2020 season, watch out for details for the 2020-2021 campaign on this page.

GALACTICOS ARE CHAMPIONS


Congratulations to Greenisland Galacticos Pool Team. Derek Whiteside's team have been crowned 2019-2020 SKC sponsored Carrick & District Pool League Champions. Due to the continuing uncertainty around the Covid-19 Pandemic the Committee decided to end the season with all current League positions being final.

Galacticos are more than worthy winners, going through their whole campaign unbeaten winning 14 and drawing 2 of their 16 matches. Colin Rafferty's Scorpions are Runners Up with Paul Roberts' Planet Bingo edging Tristan Scott-Heyes' Whitehead Trojans into 3rd spot on frame difference.

Watch this space for any developments going forward for our 2020-2021 season

Scorpions win SKC League 3 A Sides


Congratulations to the Scorpions team of Darren Whiteside, Lee McIlreavy Paul Kerr and Johnny Johnston on winning the 2019/2020 League 3 A Sides Competition. After making their way to the Final they faced a Whitehead Trojans team of Chris Strain, John Kane, Andy Arbuthnot and Tristan Scott-Heyes. The match went the distance to 5-4 and John Kane can consider himself a bit unfortunate as he lost out to our current Individual Champion Darren Whiteside. It was the second night in a row Darren had held his nerve to see his team home.

Well done Scorpions, unlucky Trojans and thanks to all who took part.
