The new Isle of Bute Pool League season gets under way on Thursday, October 30, 2014.

The new Isle of Bute Pool League season will get under way on Thursday, October 30, with ten teams signed up to take part in the 2014-15 competition.

The ten teams taking part this season are Galatea Bar 1 and 2, Gamba’s Bar 1 and 2, Golf Club 1 and 2, Golfers 1 and 2, Kingarth and Struan.

The league’s AGM, held on October 16, agreed two changes to the constitution for the new season: one relates to the awarding of medals rather than trophies for runner-up teams at the end-of-season prize-giving, while the other encourages teams to attend league committee meetings by awarding a point per team for each attendance.

The first round of fixtures for the new season, on October 30, is as follows: Golf Club 1 v Struan, Golfers 2 v Galatea 1, Kingarth v Gamba’s 1, Gamba’s 2 v Golfers 1, Galatea 2 v Golf Club 2.
