Galatea 2 are the early leaders in the 2014-15 Isle of Bute Pool League.

The Galatea 2 team are making the early running in the new Isle of Bute Pool League season, with four wins from their first four matches.

They are one of two teams in the competition still boasting an unbeaten record, with the Struan hot on the leaders’ heels with three wins out of three - though the Galatea team’s early form, and extra game played, gives them a two-point advantage in the table at the time of publication.

Elsewhere, the Isle of Bute Pool League is to re-affiliate to the Scottish Pool Association for the 2015 season, allowing any Isle of Bute Pool League area player to enter competitions organised by the SPA - and also, in return for an entry fee of £30, eligibility for the SPA’s individual membership (IM) competitions, with a chance to qualify for five national finals and to gain national ranking points.
