Singles Winner Iain Soutar
Singles Winner Iain Soutar

Montrose Pool League season concluded on Saturday (April 26) at the Caledonia Golf Club.

The singles final was competed by Iain Soutar and Chris Petrie. Iain narrowly beat Ricky Allen in the semi-final 3-2. Chris run out 3-1 winner against Andy Mowatt in the other semi-final. The eventual winner was Iain, who continued form and took his chances to win the singles title for the fifth time. Chris, possibly the pre-finals favourite, deserved more from the day after reaching three finals, but unfortunately luck wasn’t with him.

Ade Higgins and Colin Stuart were the surprise but worthy winners of the Doubles, a real steady performance saw them defeat some of the favourites on the way to and in the final.

Ian Fryer won the Masters competition for the second time in three years after coming from behind to beat Rick Allen 3-2. Ricky had chances but unfortunately couldn’t pot the blacks.

The U18s competition was competed on the Friday night with 16 entries. After many close matches Findlay Harcus defeated Michael Faulkner in the final for the second successive year.

On the Thursday, Golf Inn Lounge comfortably beat Neptune Bar in the Knockout Cup final stopping their treble opportunity.

Neptune returned on the Friday to narrowly beat Northern Vaults B in the A Division Cup final. Lochside Warriors completed their League and Cup double by beating Legion B in the B Division Cup Final.
