Tuesday 30th October

What a match we had in Whitehead with Trojans and Hit Men & Her. It looked plain sailing for the seaside team as they raced in to a quick 3-0 lead but the Monkstown side who have underachieved to date this season stormed right back to lead 4-3 at the interval, highlight being a superb break and dish from Rab McMaw. Trojans started off well again in the second session taking a brace to lead 5-4 but again HM&H replied to regain the lead at 6-5. Another brace from the home side put them on the hill at 7-6 but the visitors were buoyed by the late arrival of Paul Henderson and he duly obliged by finishing well in the final frame. Honours shared at 7-7.

But the second half was a different affair with the Tigers taking six of the seven frames and taking the match 9/5. Special mention to Alan Corrigan with 3/3 on the night.

Galacticos travelled to Times Bar to take on the Scorpions. The home team romped to a 4 frame lead with wins for Rab McCullough, Lee McIlreevy, Johnny Johnston and Colin Rafferty.

Once again Dragons fought back with Michael Wilson denying Rab McCullough his hat trick. Kyle Kirkwood put Dragons back in the lead beating his opposite number Colin Rafferty. Lee McIlreevy (Break and Dish) got revenge against Alastair Wilson before Paul Kerr completed his hat trick against Aaron Leslie to take Scorpions to the hill and guarantee leaving Doagh with at least a draw. The final frame was a game between opposing captains Colin Rafferty and Kyle Kirkwood, but there was to be no win for Scorpions as Kirkwood won the lag and held his nerve to Break and Dish to maintain Dragons unbeaten start to the season and remain top of the League. Best for Dragons Kyle Kirkwood 3/3.Best for Scorpions Paul Kerr 3/3

Whitehead Trojans 7-8 Greenisland Galacticos

Alpha P-P Times Tigers

What an absolutely fantastic match we had in the Knockout Cup Prelim in Whitehead Rangers Club tonight between the hosts Trojans and visitors Galacticos. It swung one way then the other before fittingly ending in a draw and going into a deciding Play Off frame. Derek Whitesides' Greenisland lads got off to a flying start leading 4-1 after five racks but Tristan Scott-Heyes' Trojans took the final two frames of the first session to stay well in the match. Trojans led for the first time at 6-5 but after the 14th black had been potted it was all square and into a decider. Up stepped Neil McFaul for Galacticos to send his team into the next round by taking out a precise 8 ball clearance holding good position for every shot much to the delight of his manager and team mates. Best for Galacticos were Marty Goudie and Neil McFaul on 3/3 for Trojans Robert Hawkins scored 2/2 with Ed McDowell and Steven Carson on 2/3.

Cockweasels 4-10 Galacticos
Dragons 10-4 Hit Men & Her
Scorpions 12-2 Alpha
Trojans 8-6 Vikings

Colts P-P Tigers

Hitmen & Her arrived at Doagh Dragons following a hard earned point last week against reigning champions Scorpions, but even though Paul Henderson got them off to the perfect start, they had no reply as the Dragons won the next 6 frames to win the first session 6-1. HM&H started the second session the same way as the first with Andy McMeekin winning the first frame, but Craig Laughlin took out a smart finish to take Dragons to the hill and even though Paul Henderson won his second frame of the match, there was to be no repeat of last week's collapse for the Dragons as Michael Wilson won the all-important 8th frame to keep Doagh on top of the table with 4 wins from 4. Best for Dragons, Kyle Kirkwood 3/3 & Craig Laughlin 2/2. Best for HM&H, Paul Henderson 2/3.

Scorpions hosted Alpha. The home team secured the points at 8-0 winning a few frames that could have gone either way.  The second half was won in a similar fashion 5-2 by the reigning champions. Best for Alpha: Stephen Willis 1/3 and Mark Kitson 1/3. Best for Scorpions: Paul Kerr 3/3, Lee McIlreevy 2/2, Gary Wallace 3/3 and Colin Rafferty 2/2.

Galacticos, hoping to improve on last season's performance with a top 4 finish this time around travelled to Whitehead to play the Cockweasels. The first two frames were shared but the Greenisland men took the next two on the bounce and looked like running away with it. The Whitehead men had different ideas firing off two quick frames to draw level. Man of the match Shaun McAlister stepped up to give the visitors the lead at half time. The visitors came out a different team in the second half running off six on the bounce, including McAlister's hat trick frames, to secure the three points. Cockweasels took the last with a great clearance from Ryan Barry but it was scant consolation.

Trojans raced to a 6-1 lead at half time with lethal finishes in every frame.  Vikings’ Tyler McKee had a good finish before  Ryan Scott had a break and dish against Ed McDowell. The next frame was taken by Robert Hawkins after a 9 ball re rack against Aaron Rolston. Vikings Captain Girvan Fleming took the next one with a tasty finish. Robert Hawkins took the next frame to secure 3 points for the Trojans. Tyler McKee pulled one back for the Vikings and Steven Hamilton ensured Vikings got a bonus point.  

Colts v Tigers was postponed

League Week 3 Round Up

This week in the Carrick & District Pool League sponsored by Times Bar

Unbeaten League leader’s ‘Trojans’ were taken by surprise by Galacticos as the Greenisland based side beat them 10-4 knocking them off the top spot.

Colts travelled down the Antrim coast to take on the Vikings. The visitors raced to a 0-6 lead with 2 a piece for Joe Patton, Paul Watters and Tucker Kidd with a break and dish in the third frame. Tyler McKee got one back for the Vikings. Joe Patton soon secured his hat trick to make it 1- 7. The Vikings give themselves a stern talking to and started playing some great pool to pull it back to 6 - 7 to get a bonus point. The last frame was a nail-biter which Tucker Kidd finally won. 6- 8 on the night. Great match.

It was another tight affair in Monkstown Social club. Reigning league champions, Scorpions came from 2 down to go into the interval 4-3 up.  Paul Kerr, Gary Wallace and Colin Rafferty put the visitors on the hill.  Hit Men and Her’s’ Robert Henderson, Andy Meeke and Paul Henderson dug deep to secure the draw and two points each.

Alpha are still without a win after Cockweasels trounced them 3-11

It looked to be plain sailing for Doagh Dragons winning the first 4 frames at a canter, but Tigers got back into the match with the next 2 frames. After that it looked like a foregone conclusion that the Dragons would storm to a win taking themselves to the hill with the next 3 frames. Times Tigers had other ideas though as Davy Flanagan kick started the come back with a cool dish from a dry break followed by wins for Alan Corrigan, Stephen Briers and John Fulton leaving the match at 7-6, securing the bonus point and giving the Tigers a chance at an unlikely 2 points when 7-2 down. Luckily for the Dragons, captain Kyle Kirkwood won the decider for the 2nd time in 3 matches for the 3 points to secure top spot in the league! Best for Dragons, Aaron Leslie, Ali Wilson & Kyle Kirkwood all 2/3, Best for Tigers, Alan Corrigan & Davy Flanagan both 2/3. Final Score 6-8.

Monday, 2 July 2018



Hi all.

As we enter the summer break with holidays pending and hopefully more of the great weather we’ve had lately, there is something for all C&DPL members to think about.

Our Secretary Robert Brown has stood down from Committee life. Rab was an excellent asset to the league and we can only be thankful for the time and effort that he put into keeping the League going.
Rather than leave it to the AGM to fill such an important post we are going to have an initial meeting at 7.30pm on Tuesday 7th August in the Greenisland WMC to see if anyone would like to be considered for the position. 

Every League needs a good Secretary to exist and Rab has done a fantastic job bonding everything together whilst on the Committee. 

Hopefully someone can fill his shoes and the League can continue on next season.

Any questions for now please contact Tristan Scott-Heyes

It's congratulations to Hit Men & Her. The Monkstown SC team are our CREATIVE TILES 2018 Knock Out Cup Winners after a top display against Doagh Dragons in the Final which was held in the Greenisland WMSC on Tuesday 22nd May. Rab Henderson's team were probably underdogs on paper but they didn't read the script and raced into a 5-1 lead after 6 racks played. Dragons took the next to reduce the arrears at the interval to 5-2 and when the Doagh team won Frame 8 it looked like the comeback was definitely on. But a brace from HM&H put them on the hill at 7-3 and although another frame went Dragons' way Sara Greenberg potted the final black off the match to seal a memorable 8-4 victory.
