Reigning champions Galatea 2 have taken over from Struan 1 at the top of the Isle of Bute Pool League standings.

Having led for most of the first half of the season, the Struan team now find themselves trailing - albeit only by a narrow two-frame margin - against a Galatea team who won all three of the island’s major pool trophies in 2015.

Meanwhile, Mike McHardy (Galatea 2) leads the fight for the gents’ individual league title, while the under-21 race is a tie between Marcus Allan (Kingarth) and Ryan Leitch.

The lead in the ladies’ contest is also shared, between Carol McHardy of the Grapes Bar and Edith McDonald of Golfers 2.
