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.
