Have your say

It has been a busy week in the Arbroath Summer Pool League with several participants playing catch-up during the holiday period.

In Group A, Garry Mitchell, Martin Cherry and Jeff Barthorpe have all secured their places in the Premier Event with the remaining players fighting it out for that fourth qualification spot. Unfortunately, Pam Twaddle’s defeat against Jeff means she can no longer qualify to the Premier Event.

In Group B, it is going to go to the wire for the third and fourth qualification spots, with Greg Alexander and Tam Walkingshaw sitting in first and second respectively and already qualified.

Josh Longmuir, in Group C, has continued his fantastic run of form and sits top of the pile with an undefeated six game record. The remaining five players are only separated by a slender margin of two points and all to play for in the next two weeks.

Group D sees the same situation with Steve Reid top with six wins from six.
