The Bridlington Special Pool Team introduced some new players at this year’s EBA European Masters event at the Spa.

The tactic worked well and the Bridlington players joined forces with colleagues from Morecambe and Rotherham to make the England team.

They had a very good week and although they did not win the tournament, they had an excellent experience.

The Bridlington team were the strongest part of the squad, winning many of their games and only suffering defeats in games which went down to the final black.

Team manager John Ropero said the team are already planning for next year and will be practising hard at the pool club at Swan House Day Centre and at Quay Leisure in Quay Road, where they meet each Wednesday.
