Isle of Bute Pool League winners Kingarth 1 were the victims of an upset in the final competition of the season this week when they lost 5-3 to Golf Club 1 in the final of the Champion of Champions Cup.

From the very first frame it looked like an upset might be on the cards, with Kingarth’s Richard Reid, this year’s league individual champion, losing out to Stephen Reynolds, but the league winners soon recovered their composure and opened up a 3-1 lead courtesy of Chez Harrison, John McBride and Gavin Wilson.

But a foul by Richie More in the fifth frame enabled Stuart McKechnie to reduce the leeway, and Stevie McDonald levelled the tie in the last singles frame before Golf Club 1, with the wind in their sails, tied up victory by winning the first two doubles games, Shaun Kernaghan and Danny Kane edging their team back in front, paving the way for McKechnie and McDonald to make sure of the prize.
