BORDERS pool players are preparing for a massive weekend as the Scottish Masters heads for the Reivers Sports Bar in Galashiels.

This is a big first for the area as the tournament is a full international ranking event, with players coming from all over the UK.

Local cuemen already entered include the Borders’ two current internationalists, Scott Bowers and Scott Simpson, who also reached last year’s Masters Pairs semi-final along with Craig Reid and Ian McCombe, who both have good seasons behind them already. Stuart Schofield , Daniel Brown, Stan Thomson and Kev Mackay are other prominent entries among an expected field of more than 100 players.

Anyone else wishing to enter must contact Mr Bowers before tomorrow on 07878 129581.
