Rampant Tigers Roar to Victory

The victorious Times Tigers celebrate there win against stablemates Scorpions in the Final of the Players Memorial Shield

Reigning champions, Scorpions faced Tigers who were narrowly beaten in the final last year in a last frame play off.

Captain sensible, Colin Rafferty put the Scorpions ahead with a pin point finish. Davy Flanagan levelled the scores with another lovely finish. Deano Reid made it 2-1 putting Scorpions back in front. Tigers doubles pairing of Steven Simpson and Chris Carson quickly equalised 2-2. Tigers went 3-2 up with a fine finish from the doubles pairing of John Fulton and Alan Corrigan. The pairing of Deano Reid and Darren Whiteside brought it back to 3-3 in what was shaping up to be another very close final. Alan Corrigan and John Fulton took the next in a single visit to give the Tigers the lead 4-3. Chris Carson put the Tigers on the hill 5-3 before John Fulton took out the finish of the night to give the Times Tigers their very first (and well deserved) winner’s trophy.

Thanks to Times Bar for hosting the final.

Players Memorial Shield Times Teams Are Final Two

Players Memorial Shield 

This competition is in memory of players who graced our league but are no longer with us. Sadly, this season year our former Chairperson, Brian Carson left us and joined the list of Pool players in our memories. We will fondly remember them.

The bottom half of the league played in Whitehead. Vikings were 4-1 up at half time before Colts stormed back to 5-5 to force a single frame shoot out which Aaron Watters won to put the Colts into the semi finals.
Tigers played Cockweasels in another tight affair. The match went to 5-5 and Chris Carson won the play off frame to put Tigers into the semi finals.
In the semi final Tigers came out of the blocks quickest and were soon 4-0 up. Colts took a couple of consolation frames but the Times Bar Tigers were simply too strong and won 6-2 to reach their first final of the season.
In the top half played at Greenisland WWMC.
Dragons faced Hitmen & Her in a preliminary match. Hitmen took both halves 3-2 to secure their place in the quarter finals, 6-4.
Hitmen & Her were up against the reigning champions, Times Bar Scorpions in the quarters. In a ding dong battle with the scores going from 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, the Scorpions dug deep. At 5-4 up Darren Haddock played a sublime exhibition shot to pot the black into the middle off the top cushion to secure a semi for the Scorpions.
Galacticos took on Trojans. From 2-2 the Galacticos stormed to a 6-2 victory to reach the semis.
The semi final was another great match. Scorpions raced to a 4-0 lead before being pegged back to 5-4 by Galacticos. In the last frame of the evening up stepped Paul Kerr, with the black just off it’s spot, escaping from a snooker, off of the top rail and rifled the black into the yellow pocket, sending his team mates into the final.
The final will be contested in Times Bar on 14th May at 8:00 pm between Tigers and Scorpions who both play from the same venue, Times Bar.

Results from Tuesday 16th April

League Week 17

Dragons are still unbeaten and it was virtually plain sailing again last night against the Cockweasels 11-3. Best Dragons on the night were Kyle Kirkwood Ali Wilson and Craig Laughlin scoring 2/2. Chris Hobson and Gordy McCormick both registered 2/3 for the Cockweasels.

The battle for the second place is hotting up. Going into last night’s games Galacticos and Scorpions were on exactly the same amount of points and frame difference.

Scorpions took on Vikings in Whitehead and the Times Bar team were always in control, leading 6-1 at half time and eventually winning 11-3. Best for the Scorpions were Paul Kerr and Lee McIlreavey both getting hat tricks.

Galacticos (who were keeping an eye on the league app as the frame scores were coming through) took on (the Scorpions’ stable mates) Times Bar Tigers. Galacticos were 6-1 up at half time and won the second session by the same score to move clear in second place on frame difference. Best on the night were Gary Wallace, Neil McFaul and Rab Butler 3/3 for Galacticos.

Whitehead Trojans travelled up to the Colts in Greenisland also harbouring ambitions of a podium placed league finish. It started off as planned as the visitors raced into a 3-0 lead before Paul Watters registered Colts first frame. By the break Trojans led 5-2 and an Ed McDowell break and dish in rack 8 was the catalyst for another strong showing in the second session for Tristan Scott-Heyes' team and they ran out 11-3 winners. Colts will be thinking "what if" for two hung blacks. Best for the hosts was Aaron Watters on 2/3 with Kenny English registering 3/3 for Trojans.

Hitmen & Her v Alpha was postponed.

Butler Cleans Up

2019 NIPA Intermediate Individual Championship


Big congratulations to Greenisland Galactico's Rab Butler on becoming the inaugural winner of the Northern Ireland Intermediate Championship.

Rab was solid all day coming through some tough matches against players from across Northern Ireland to reach the final. Gary Wallace also from Greenisland Galacticos made the final too. He was growing stronger as the day went on. But it wasn't to be for Gary and Rab who was never behind in the Final ran out the 7-2 winner to scoop the £335 top prize and the title as the Northern Ireland Intermediate champion.

It's now official !!!!! Doagh Dragons are the new 2018-2019 Carrick & District Pool League Champions. They secured the title after winning 8-6 in a hard fought match away to Whitehead Trojans. And the result also means the McConnells of Doagh team are still on course to go through the League campaign unbeaten having only two matches to go. It didn't look good for Kyle Kirkwood's lads early on as they trailed by 4-1 but they pulled it back to 4-3 by the interval then pushed on to lead 6-5 with only three to play. The next two racks were shared and Trojans were battling for a draw that would keep them very much in the race for second place but it was a fitting end to the match and League title race for Dragons Captain Kyle Kirkwood as he stepped up to sink the winning black in Frame 14 to start the celebrations. Best for Trojans was the consistent Andy Arbuthnot with 3/3 and for Dragons it was top cueist Alaister Wilson also on 3/3.

Whiteside unstoppable


Darren Whiteside (Scorpions) 6-4 Gary Wallace (Galacticos)

Many congratulations to Darren Whiteside on retaining the Carrick & District Pool League Individual Title. The Final was a cracking match played in the Times Bar, York Road, Belfast on Monday 8th April.

Darren won the lag for break and went on to take the first frame with a classy ‘cocked hat’ black. Gary took advantage of a missed last ball and levelled. Darren was soon 2-1 up and again Gary levelled with a good finish. Darren was 3-2 up after tactically controlling the frame and soon he was 4-2 up clearing the table after Gary broke dry. Gary put up a great fight and levelled again at 4-4 with a reverse dish then a break and dish of his own. Gary looked to be in control before Darren pulled out a scintillating shot to remove Gary’s ball (which was blocking the pocket) and pot his own to enable a go at a tricky finish to put him on the hill at 5-4. Gary broke dry in the next frame and Darren took out a great 8-ball finish to claim the title.

On his way to the final Darren overcame challenges from Gareth Fears 4-2, Tommy Fleming 4-0, Ed McDowell 4-3, Steven Carson 5-2 and Ali Wilson 5-2 before playing the formidable Gary Wallace in the final.

Four of the matches went to a deciding frame including that of 2018 Winner Robert Hawkins (pictured) who went down 4-3 to Trojan team mate John Holland in their Prelim match.

His opponent will be the evergreen Kenny English who after a tense 4-3 win over Stephen Hamilton in his first match proceeded to cruise into the Final with a resounding 5-0 win over Gordon McCormick. Johnston and English will play off for the title in the Times Bar, Belfast, date to be confirmed.

League 2019 Under 23 Individual

Congratulations to Scorpions' Dean Reid (pictured) on winning the 2019 Carrick & District Pool League Under 23s Individual sponsored by Times Bar.
In the final Dean was up against the talented Tommy Fleming (pictured right) from Whitehead Vikings.
The first frame went to Dean after escaping a snooker swerving to create the angle to pot the black into the middle pocket. It was soon 2-0 with an 8 ball finish. Dean made it 3-0 winning a frame both players had chances in. Tommy was unlucky to snooker himself going for a finish. Dean took full advantage and coolly made it 4-0. Dean Reid completed the 5-0 victory escaping from a snooker and potting the black he previously left over the corner pocket.
Well done Dean. Fully deserved. Unlucky Tommy.
Many thanks to Brian Boyd of Times Bar for supporting the league and hosting the final.

The Final will take place in the Times Bar, Monday 8th April at 20:00.

We've done it - 2019 Interleague Champions

After a fantastic day of  high drama Pool with many of NIs top players in attendance Derek Whiteside has led Carrick & District Pool League to success at the 2019 NIPA Interleague 'A' Event. The Competition was held in the Queens Hall, Newtownards and was competed for by 14 Leagues with 11 players per team. Perseverance and determination which Whiteside has in abundance has finally paid off as he has longed to win this event for years but thought he was destined to the the Jimmy White off the Pool world. Carrick won their group unbeaten to go straight into the Semi Finals and were up against a Ballymena side who had just had a nailbiting 12-10 win over a fancied Coleraine side. In the other Semi Final Play Off defending Champions Larne overcame Crumlin by 12-4 to set up a Semi against Antrim and it was Larne who went on to reach the Final again by defeating a strong Antrim side led by Rab Fee also by 12-4. We all thought it was going to be Ballymena's day as they led 7-4 after the first session against Carrick in their Semi but Whiteside's troops dug deep taking seven out of the next eight racks to win 12-8 and set up a repeat of the 2018 Final that they had lost in a last frame decider. It looked like it was going to be more pain for the eventual winners as Larne started strongly to lead 3-1 but they were to only win one more frame in the match as Carrick, as they had done in their Semi Final, came storming back this time winning eleven out of the next twelve racks for a well deserved 12-4 success with Trevor Whiteside sealing the deal with a precise break and dish in Frame 16. Party time for Carrick !!!!!

Congratulations to Darren Whiteside and Lee Mcilreavey on becoming the 2018/2019 Carrick League Doubles Champions after a great Final in the Times Bar on Monday 25th March.
Gee Crawley and Gareth Fears put up a brave fight coming from 0-4 down to 4-4 to force a final frame decider but Lee McIlreavey turned on 'destroy mode' and subsequently broke and dished with a sensational finish much to his partner's relief.
