2005 North East Scotland Pool Tour
Premier winner Andy Gerrie (Fraserburgh) and Championship winner Richard Bruce (Aberdeen)

Congratulations to Andy Gerrie (Fraserburgh) and Richard Bruce (Aberdeen) who have taken there respective titles in the Stagecoach Bluebird Premier and Championship North East Scotland Pool Tours. Andy and Richard also won the Grand Finals in both events...

Premier Grand Final 2005
Finalists Phil Craig Jnr (Aberdeen) and Andy Gerrie (Fraserburgh)
On Sunday 6th November at Bowl 2000 in Elgin, Richard Bruce went into the tournament as no.4 seed, 14 points off the pace set by no.1 seed Steve Annal (Aberdeen). The two clashed in the semi final, with Richard edging a tense match 6-4, which left him knowing that a win in the final would also earn him the overall title. His opponent was Edwin Whyte (Fraserburgh) who had earlier defeated event 3 winner and no.2 seed Ray Edmonstone (Aberdeen). There was nothing much Richard could do as Edwin blazed into a 6-1 lead, but Richard never missed a chance as he clawed his way back to take the event and the title of Stagecoach Bluebird Championship Tour Champion 2005.

Following Richard in his promotion to the Premier Tour in 2006 will be Steve Annal (Aberdeen), Ray Edmonstone (Aberdeen), Edwin Whyte (Fraserburgh), Bruce Thomson (Stonehaven) and Neil Smith (Turriff).

Championship Grand Final 2005
Finalists Richard Bruce (Aberdeen) and Edwin Whyte (Fraserburgh)
A week later, on Sunday 13th November at the Station Hotel in Ellon, Andy Gerrie went into the tournament as no.7 seed, 31 points behind leader Raymond Mowat (Peterhead). With only the no.7 and no.8 seeds surviving past the second round, the tour title was blown wide open, and Andy took full advantage with some flawless pool as he reached the final to face Phillip Craig (Aberdeen), where he would need only 3 frames to be overall winner. This was the first major senior final for Phillip, a Scotland U-21 and former junior team captain, but he kept close order, overturning a 5-3 deficit to go 6-5 up. But Andy was not to be denied the icing on the cake as he rattled off two excellent clearances to take the first prize of ?500, and lift the trophy for Stagecoach Bluebird Premier Tour Champion 2005.

Andy finished 8 points clear of Mark Oaten (Aberdeen), and 9 points ahead of Raymond Mowat in third place. He also went on to win the 9-ball flyer beating Darren Matthew 4-3 in the final, so not a bad weekend all things considered.

At the other end of the table, the relegation battle lasted until the second round. Mike Ritchie needed a win over Graham Reid to stay in the top flight, but a 6-5 defeat sees him join Chris Lawrie (Stonehaven), Willie Guyan (Aberdeen), Alan Duncan (Elgin), Neil Lawrence (Elgin) and Andy Duncan (Elgin), who will all compete in the Championship Tour next season.

A combined total of ?2670 prize money was paid out over the two weekends which brings the first North East Scotland Pool Tour season to a close. Thank you to all the players who took part, those who helped aid the smooth running of each tournament, and also to the venues, Station Hotel - Ellon, Bellslea Bar - Fraserburgh, and Bowl 2000 - Elgin.

Special thanks also to CML Web Design for an excellent website, and of course to our sponsor for 2005, STAGECOACH Bluebird.

Next year looks very promising. Plans are under way to hold a North East Open in early 2006, and a 5-man event in July, and with over 32 players on the waiting list, it looks likely the intention to introduce a third section, named the Challenge Tour, will be fulfilled, bringing the member total to 96.

Full details will be revealed soon, so keep an eye out for the latest news on the website at www.nespt.co.uk
