Galacticos send out a message

Galacticos Pool Team
The Charity Shield signaled the start of the 2014/2015 season in the Carrick & District Pool League. And it was League Champions Galacticos who issued a statement of intent by defeating Knock Out Cup Winners Swift Bar in the match which was held in the Swift Bar, Carrick on Tuesday 26th August.

Result & report
Galacticos 8-4 Swift

Tonight kicked off the City Air Express Carrick & district Pool League season with the curtain raiser charity shield between last year’s group of mates out for a social gathering the Galacticos and the new boys on the block cup specialists The Swift.
A very tight 1st half seen both teams trade frames with an in off in the 7th frame giving Paul Roberts Swift team the edge at the interval 4-3
The Galacticos manager Derek Whiteside sent his team out for the second half with a spring in their step winning the next 5 frames for an 8-4 victory to win the Charity Shield.
Both teams produced a high level of pool in both safety and clinical clearances when the few chances presented themselves and the match was played with lots of mutual respect. If tonight was about blowing away the summer cobwebs the coming weeks and months ahead look to be at yet an even higher level for Carrick pool.

This year’s League charity chosen by the League delegates is the FRIENDS OF CANCER CENTRE at Belfast City Hospital, a very worthy cause indeed.

CITY AIR EXPRESS Carrick & District League 3 A Sides


Well done to Mix & Match Old Boys on winning the 2013/2014 Carrick & District Pool League 3 A Sides. Although only 5 teams entered it was a very competitive Competition played in the Greenisland WMSC on Saturday 31st May. The event was played to a round robin format with Semi Finals and a final.

Champions when the final black was potted were the Mix & Match Old Boys quartet (pictured right) of Joe Patton, John McClean, Robert Hawkins and newly appointed NIPA Seniors B2 team Manager Rab Brown. They were tied at 4-4 in the final against the talented Swifticos (Rab Butler, Trevor Whiteside & Paul Roberts) but the deciding frame itself ended up going to a 9 ball re rack. It was Mix & Match's Robert Hawkins who held his nerve potting a black down the rail to give the Old Boys the title.

It started off well for Scorpions as they led 5-3 but four in a row put  Swift in front and they never went behind in the match again. After the first card, Swift held an 8-6 advantage and although Scorpions closed the gap to 7-8 a six frame rally from Swift put them on the hill at 14-7. Scorpions did pull another two back but the inevitable 15th frame for Swift came in frame 24 to start the celebrations off for Paul Roberts' team. Top off the pots for the Winners on the night was Rab Butler with an excellent 5/5
