Davy reached final of Tayside Singles

A STRONG Arbroath contingent recently travelled to Dundee to compete in the 2013 Tayside Singles competition.

A massive 105 entries had been received and provided one of the strongest fields the tournament has ever had. Marc Fleming, Dundee, ran out the tournament winner, defeating David Jack, Arbroath, by five frames to two.

Both players had played exceptionally well throughout the day and more than deserved their berths in the final.
