Paisley potter Geo Adams wins latest tour event
CONGRATULATIONS to the Paisley potter Geo Adam on winning the latest Regional tour event and taking back the number one spot to secure his 2016 squad place.
Geo had been the only region five player since to automatically qualify for the Men’s Scotland team until Brian Edwards of Benderloch managed to take it last year. Geo, who is being sponsored by Kebabish is delighted to be back at the top of an ever-growing array of talent.
John Telfer, Brian Edwards, John Kinvig, Drew Thomson, Andrew Chapman, Chris Anton, Andrew Duncan and Lochgilphead player Mark Ellis have earned themselves the chance to compete in the 2016 Scotland squad trials to be held in Edinburgh on Sunday, where they will be fighting to join Geo.
Barry Clark has become the first winner of the Oban Singles premier league with Chris Anton winning the first division.
Junior Section – With the junior players only half way through their league season, 11-year- old Sean Sneddon is sitting in pole position with 13-year- old Brandon Petrie chasing his tail.
Outreach Section – Having just competed in their first international event, five players from Oban returned home with silverware.
In the team section Sandy Galbraith and Rab Marshall joined Dundee player Michael Hitchen to scoop first place while Gary Gemmell, Paul McKenzie and the only female player Kerry Maclean came runner up. In the singles competition Gary Gemmell was runner up after losing only one match.
