The Station Bar pool team’s Ian Middlemass, right, and Bomber McCombe, who represented Scotland at the recent European Championships in Blackpool.

While the draw for the singles wasn’t kind to both players, as they came up against some high-class opposition, it was the team game in which Bomber shone, recording an impressive 22 wins from 31 frames to put himself very much in the reckoning for a team place in the up-and-coming world finals.
