Two Bute pool players helped Scotland reach the final of the Masters team event at the European Blackball Association’s Nations Cup tournament in Northern Ireland last week.

Team manager and captain Mike McHardy was joined by fellow islander Alan Kane as the Scots finished top in the four-team group section, before losing out 13-9 to England in the final.

Afterwards Mike said: “I am very proud of the fact that this is the first time a Scottish Masters team has ever made it through to an international final.”
