Big surprise in Fly final
QUALITY potting and exciting contests were the ingredients for a highly successful finals night in the Cardigan and District Pool League.
The biggest upset was in the Jeff Fly Jones Memorial three-aside competition.
Peter Almond, Gary Murtagh and Chris Truslove were seen by many as the red-hot favourites to take the title, especially as they had won every game in the run-up to the final, which included a superb sequence of four eight-ball clearances on the trot.
It appeared they would come out on top again when taking the first three games, but Rugby Club trio Rhydian Evans, Carl Owen and Welsh international Lee Davies had other ideas as they recovered to win five games on the bounce for victory.
