THE DP Leisure Pool League Winter 2007/8 finals night at Zen Night Club ended the season.

The evening started with the finals of the men's and mixed doubles. In the mixed doubles A Lewis and L Pinches (Arches) were in excellent form and ran out 3-0 winners over D Hasley and L Wassell (Lacon Arms).

In the men's doubles G Lee and G Adams (Arches) won 4-1 in a very one-sided match in which S Jones and T Burrell (Lacon Arms) never really got going.

In the Landlords' final, E Howells (Prince Regent) won a very sporting match 3-2 against A Smith (Flints).

The Landladies' final was another close, friendly match with some interesting shots that changed the match, D Woodward (Quayside Tavern) winning 3-2 against R Howells (Prince Regent).

The ladies' doubles finals brought together two previous champions J Bullent and B Nelson (Merlins) and L Smallwood and K Brown (Three Tuns). And in another close match with both pairs missing many chances the Merlins pair won 3-2.
