The Struan 1 team are the new Isle of Bute Pool League champions after a 7-5 victory over fellow challengers Galatea 2 in a winner-takes-all clash in the penultimate round of fixtures.

A titanic battle came down to the final game of the match, in which David Speirs edged out Shaun Greer to deny the Galatea team the draw which would have seen them retain the crown.

Mike McHardy of the Galatea 2 team took some consolation by winning the gents’ individual league title with 34 wins to his name, while Marcus Allan (Kingarth) took the under-21 title with 15 wins.

The ladies’ individual contest is a tie between Debbie McQueenie (Gamba’s) and Sarah Steele (Grapes), who both finished on 12 wins. A play off in a neutral venue will be arranged in the next few weeks.
