We hosted the Scottish Singles play-downs at the weekend and it saw some great players from all over Scotland competing on our great carpet.
Our very own Steven Burns was representing Ardrossan this time round and he cam up against East Lothian’s Billy Mellors. Sadly for Steven Mellors was on top form and he lost the game 21-9.
Billy went through to play Jason Banks from Garioch and came away with a 21-17 victory in what was a great game for the spectators. he then went onto play Paul Foster in the 1/4 final. He was leading the game all the way, from 11-2 to 16-11 and 20-16 although he just couldn’t get over the line as Paul took a 1,3 and 1 to win the game 21-20.
Other 1/4 final results were as follows:
Gordon McKenzie (Coatbridge) beat Graeme Forsyth (Berwickshire) 21-16
John Flemming (Inverclyde) beat Alistair Elliot (East Kilbride) 21-4
Bryan Cooper (West Lothian) beat Ross Carlin (Dundee) 21-5
