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.

LEAGUE WEEK 1 RESULTS

In the first week of the Carrick & District Pool League sponsored by SKC Gaming there were some great matches.

League champions, Doagh Dragons stormed to a 12-2 victory of Cockweasels. Players of the night were: Ali Wilson, Aaron Leslie, Michael Wilson who all had 3 wins from 3 and Craig Laughlin had 2/2. 

This year we have implemented a bonus point for reaching 10. The Dragons gained all 4 points (3 for winning and bonus point for reaching 10) and are sitting top of the house after week one.

Galacticos hosted Colts in a local derby in the Greenisland Club. Galacticos raced out of the traps with an excellent clearance by Aaron Rolston followed by frames from Gary Wallace, Ed McDowell and Trevor Whiteside. Harry Warwick pulled one back for the Colts who were sporting a few new players but Shaun McAlister and Rolston took the next two to give the Galacticos a 6-1 half time lead. McAlister completed his double and Ed McDowell finished to ensure three points for last year's runners up. Another fantastic clearance by Rolston meant the Galacticos could start eyeing the bonus point with four frames left. Tucker Kidd and Harry Warwick took the next two to heap the pressure on but Whiteside kept his nerve to deliver that elusive frame to capture all points available. Dove Allen took the last one and the score finished 10-4 Galacticos. Players of the night were Aaron Rolston 3/3 and Harry Warwick 2/2.


The Trojans travelled to Whiteabbey Royal British Legion. The Legion lads came out swinging as Andy McMeekin took the first frame with a great break and dish. Rab McMaw soon made it to 2. Robert Henderson thought he had made it 3 nil but after potting the black he also potted the white gifting a frame to Joe Patton. Trojans went through the gears and turned it around to 2-3 with wins for Andy Arbuthnot and Kenny English. Rab McMaw and Steeky Carson made it 3-4 for Trojans at half time. The Legion had plenty of work ahead of them, and short work they made of it! They took second half 7-0 and finished 10-4 winners. Andy McMeekin and Rab McMaw were the players of the night both winning 3/3.

Times Tigers welcomed Alpha. Debutant Paul Watters won his first game putting Tigers 1 up. John Fulton failed to clear the table leaving Lee McCord a simple black to draw level. Aaron Watters also making his debut left another simple black for Angie Carson, putting Alpha 2-1 up. Stephen Simpson settled the Tigers who went on to lead 5 2 at the break. Shot of the night came in the 10th frame when Alpha’s Angie Carson potted a great black from a snooker. Tigers won 10-4 and received a bonus point. Players of the night were Paul Watters 3 from 3 and Davy Flanagan 2 from 2.

The league’s new boys Planet Bingo hosted Times Scorpions. Stuart McClean, Andy Galloway, Rab Butler and Chris Carson took the first four frames before Scorpions, Johnny Johnston and Darren Whiteside took the next two. Chris Carson was a man alive making it 5-2 at the interval. Scorpions’ Dean Reid and Paul Kerr made it 5-4. Planet Bingo Captain took Boris’ Den, frame ten. Lee McIlreavy brought it back to 6-5. Chris Carson made it to lucky seven to put the Planet Bingo team on the hill. In frame 13 it was unlucky for Paul Roberts as Colin Rafferty brought it back to 7-6 with a captain's performance. Darren Whiteside secured the draw with a solid game. Players of the night were Chris Carson 3/3 and Darren Whiteside 2/2.

SKC Charity Shield Goes To Greenisland Galacticos

The league's opening match took place last night in Whiteabbey Royal British Legion pitting last year's league champions, Doagh Dragons against KO Cup winners Galacticos.

Galacticos have been busy during the summer and gave debuts to 3 new players. Aaron Rolston and Ryan Marcus the two young guns from Larne and the evergreen Ed McDowell.
Galacticos stormed out of the traps taking a seemingly unassailable 6-0 lead. Rolston drew first blood with a tactical frame. Gary Wallace stepped up next and took out an excellent clearance in a frame he had been behind in from the break. Next up Marcus opened his account for his new team with a pinpoint clean up. Neil McFaul took edged a tactical frame to keep the Greenisland men flying and McDowell took the fifth to guarantee all of the new signings were off the mark. Next up was Trevor Whiteside with an outstanding finish.
6-0 and cruising?
Kyle "Pool Guy" Kirkwood had different ideas and took the last frame of the half to give the Doagh men hope.

The second half started and Michael Wilson edged a technical frame against Paul Harris who had just arrived from Whitehouse Working Mens Club. Rumours that he bought his satnav from Trigger are, as yet, unsubstantiated.
Ali "Adjustable Supreme Leg" Wilson took the next and Gareth Fears the 10th and the Doagh men were buzzing.
6-4 and we had a game.
It wasn't to be for the lads from McConnells as "Mr Steady" Wallace put the Galacticos on the hill and another outstanding clearance from Whiteside gave the Galacticos the first silverware of the season.
Massive thanks to WRBL for hosting and special mention for Rab "Gabber" Butler who leveled, brushed and ironed the table to perfection.

We kick off next week in our 25th anniversary season and if the quality of pool on show last night is anything to go by it will be a fantastic season.

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.
