With some great double acts qualifying from all the top teams, the Borders Pool League Pairs competition turned out to be a Waverley A bonanza.

Steven Bell and John Jardine lost out to three-times winners Scott Bowers and Scott Simpson in a cagey final, with Bowers dictating the flow and Simpson capitalising with some classy clearances.

The semis saw High Level A pair Jimmy Callaghan and Terry Storrie overpowered by the winners while Ship B pair of Spencer Craig and John Gallagher pushed the runners-up all the way to a last-frame decider in what was a superb event.
