News Archive 07 - World Masters Squads 2007

It is with pleasure I would like to announce the Scotland Ladies Squad attending the 2007 World Pool Championships which are commencing on Sunday 15th April in Leisureworld, Bridlington. The squad is full of experienced internationalists as well as new talented players making their international debuts. Good luck to everyone attending, lets make it another clean sweep for Scotland :-)


Yvonne Ewing (Manager) – Has been a Scottish Internationalist since 1995 and is in her 11th year of management. As well as being the manager of the most successful ladies team, Yvonne has been a very successful player. She is the current Nations Cup singles champion. Yvonne clearly likes this competition, as she was also runner up in 1995 and a semi finalist in both 1997 and 2002. She has been runner up in the World singles in 2005, semi finalist in 2006, and quarter finalist in 2002 and 2004. She was European singles Champion, and doubles Champion with Diane Colville in 1996 and runner up in 2006. Yvonne lives in Larkhall, Lanarkshire.

Shona Lucas (Captain) – Shona has been an internationalist since 1994 and was crowned World Champion in 2001. She was runner-up in 1997 and 2006, reached the semi finals in 2003 & 2004. Along with partner Linda Gillies, Shona is the reigning World Ladies doubles Champion. She was also the European Ladies Singles Champion in 2003. Shona married PPPO player Andy Lucas in August this year and they both live in Cambridge with their children, Devone & Connor.

Claire Dempster (Vice-Captain) – Claire made her international come back in 2004 and was voted in as vice captain last year. Claire has reached the quarter finals of the World Championships in 1996, and was crowned Nations Cup champion in 1998 and runner-up in 2005. Claire was also runner-up in the European Championships in 1997 and quarter finalist in 1996. Claire was runner-up in the 2004 British Open. Claire is an inspirational member of the Scottish Ladies team and has tremendous natural ability for the game.

Linda Gillies – Linda was a founder member of the Scottish Ladies International Pool team and is a former and highly successful and inspirational team captain. If I had to pick a player to play my deciding frame it would be Linda every time. During her career Linda has been World Singles Champion in 1996, runner up in 2001 & 2002 and semi-finalist in 2000. Along with partner Shona Lucas, Linda is the reigning World Ladies Doubles Champion. Linda was the Nations Cup champion in 2000 and also reached the quarter finals of the European Championship in 2003. Linda lives with husband Iain, who is also a Scotland internationalist, in Inverness.

Kathy Paton – Kathy has been a solid member of the Scotland Team since 1999 and lives in Glasgow with her husband George and family who all play pool at international level. Kathy is the official Scottish Ladies Choir Master, and with the help of Sarah, Gill, Gaynor and the rest of the team, creates a fabulous atmosphere to play in. Kathy is famous for never giving up on a frame, as the song we sing goes “will fight till the day is done”.

Sandra Diamond – Sandra has been an internationalist since 1999 and reached the quarter finals of the 2003 European Championship. I am confident that Sandra can build on her recent success in reaching the Scottish Singles final for the second time, by reaching the latter stages of a major event, something she is well capable of. Sandra was a part of the Scotland ladies team of 7 who were crowned World Team Champions in Cork last year. Living proof that we trawl all of Scotland for our team, Sandra is from the south west corner of Scotland, Stranraer.

Netty Anderson – Netty is making her international come-back after a two year break, if you call being a full time mum a break. Netty was the World Singles runner up in 2000, quarter finalist in 1996, and semi finalist in 2001. Netty is one of our most naturally talented players, and I am delighted she is returning to the squad, as she adds more experience to our team. Netty lives in Westfield Bathgate, and I welcome her back and wish her all the best on her return.

Gillian Hayes – Gillian has been an internationalist since 1998. Gill was also a vital member of the World Championship winning 7 in Cork last year, where she also reached the singles quarter final. She now lives in Glasgow, after a spell living in Wales, and is playing in the Individual Membership for the first time this year. Gill is an ever present player who works really hard at her game and sets an example by the amount of time she puts into her game. We as a team benefit from this hard work, via her ability and experience. Gillian is in charge of the new County set-up in Scotland, something I am sure will help develop the ladies game further.

Gaynor McHaffie – Gaynor has been an internationalist since 1997. She reached the quarter finals of the Nations Cup held at Camber Sands. Gaynor potted the winning black for us in this event last year, and we would of course, be delighted if she repeated that feat this year!!! An ever present member of the Scottish Ladies Team and founder member of Kathy’s choir, Gaynor is a trusted and valued member of the squad. Gaynor lives in Haddington, near Edinburgh and runs her own pub/hotel, The Victoria Inn.

Denise Laing – Denise Laing became an internationalist in 2004 and at her first A international event helped the Scottish Ladies Team secure the Nations Cup title in Camber Sands. She was a part of the Scotland ladies team of 7 who were crowned World Team Champions in Cork last year. Denise reached the semi-finals of the 2005 European Championship, and has the ability and the potential to keep up that standard. Denise lives in Falkirk with her family, where they run a pub. M’on the Hurtlet!!

Elaine “The Hustler” Campbell – Elaine has been an internationalist since 1999. She was runner –up in the world championship at her first attempt and has been a quarter finalist in 2000, 2001, 2002 & 2003. Elaine is one of the most gifted potters of a ball I have seen in the ladies game, she can “pot them off the lampshades”. Elaine lives in Moodiesburn, North Lanarkshire and she helped develop the SPA website and Scottish ladies website Elaine was also part of the Scotland ladies team of 7 who won the World Team Champions in Cork last year.

Angela MacKay – Angela represented Scotland for the first time at Camber Sands in 2004. Angie is a tremendous potter of the ball and is improving in leaps and bounds, illustrated by her victory in the 2006 Scottish Ladies singles championship. Angie is a tremendous addition to the A squad. She gave birth to her son at the end of 2006 and is thoroughly enjoying parenthood. Angie lives in Edinburgh and I have high hopes for her at this year’s championship.

Sarah Pollard – Sarah made her international come back last year, after a short break from International pool, and her form was absolutely superb. Sarah is an inspirational member of the team, and is one of the integral reasons for the atmosphere within the team remaining harmonious. Sarah is a very well liked member of the team who works really hard at her game and it is now paying off. Sarah lives in Fife and now has a pool table in her house, so there’s no excuse now!! ;-).

Heather Stewart (Ladies B Team Manager) – Heather became an internationalist three years ago and was selected to become captain of the ladies 7’s squad. She is now Team Manager and is doing a fantastic job in developing her squad. She has high hopes for this years championship…watch this space. Heather is a primary school teacher who works tirelessly at her game. She has impressed in the Tour this year, by finishing joint 7th in the national rankings. Heather was part of the Scotland Ladies B Speed Pool team, crowned World Champions at the event last year. She is confident that they will retain this title in 2007. Heather lives in Lanark with her family. (3rd tree on the left!! ;-) )

Katie Paterson (Ladies B Team Captain) – Katie joined the international team in 2004 and lives in Falkirk with her two children. Katie was recently asked to be the Scotland Ladies B Team Captain in which she was delighted and proud to accept. Katie is a player who works really hard at her game and thoroughly enjoys herself. Founder member , alongside Denise Laing, of the much feared “Falkirk Mental.” I am sure Katie and Heather will help guide our B team to some deserved success.

Pauline Selkirk (Ladies B Team Vice Captain) – Pauline first competed at the 2005 European Championship and performed really well. She has recently been selected to become the Scottish Ladies B Team Vice-Captain, a role in which I am sure she will excel. Pauline is a very steady player, having potted the winning black on deciding frames many times, including last year against England. Definitely one to watch out for!

Fiona Herd – Fiona became an internationalist in 2004, and lives and plays pool in Dunfermline, Fife. Fiona reached the quarter finals of last years World Championship and represented the A team at the European Championships held in Isle of Man. She secured us the title of Scotland B Team World Speed Pool Champions, by potting the final black in the event last year. Fiona is another B team player who has the potential to make the A squad in the future.

Yvonne Saunders – Yvonne lives in Whitburn, West Lothian, and became an internationalist in 2004. She works really hard at improving her game and has shown a vast improvement over the past twelve months. She became a mum for the first time last year and is thoroughly enjoying her new role in life. Baby Callum will be attending the event this year too, and I’m sure will prove to be our lucky mascot!

Jane Doig – Jane is in her second year of playing pool internationally, and has shown her potential by stepping up to the A team for the European Championships in 2005. She is still relatively new to the international pool scene, but an experienced international football player!! Jane moved to Wales at the start of the year, yet continues to show her loyalty to the team by attending as many events as possible. A key player in our Speed Pool win last year – she definitely has the technology ;-)

Gemma Keenan – Gemma became an internationalist in 1994 at the World Championships. She is a determined player who is very difficult to beat. She continues to work hard at her game, is a strong player for the B team, and has the potential to move up into the A squad. Gemma lives in Saltcoats in Ayrshire.

Jackie McIntyre – The first tournament for Jackie was the 2005 European Championship and she has been hooked ever since! Jackie is another member of the team who puts a lot of time and effort into her game, and this is illustrated by some recent excellent performances. Jackie should be going to Bridlington with loads of confidence, as a result of her current form. She also spends a lot of her time helping to run the Scotland Learning Disabilities team with Kelly Wood. She’ll be looking for a double whammy this year!

Lynsey Selkirk – Lynsey is in her second year of playing pool internationally. She has improved her game in leaps and bounds in the last twelve months and continues to work hard at her game. She is a key player for the Scotland squad and will be travelling to Bridlington self-assured that she will play well. Also a fantastic singer, she is sure to be spotted in a karaoke bar! Lynsey will be making sure our team singing is in tune – she’s got a hard job on her hands there!

Kim Black – Kim has continued to play well since her first appearance for Scotland two years ago. She stays in Midlothian and very kindly sponsored t-shirts for the A team girls at Cork. (Kim’s Cars) She continues to put a lot of time and effort into the game, and is beginning to reap the rewards. A very steady player, and an asset to the B team squad.

Carol Hunter – Carol is another player with great potential. She has come back onto the pool scene this year and fully merits her place in the international B team. She has been playing very well in recent tournaments and I’m sure this will continue in Bridlington. Good luck Carol.

Kellie Barn (new) – Kellie has the potential to eventually become an A team regular. She came onto the scene in Scotland last year, entering our ladies tour events. Kellie fully merits her place in the team and is definitely one to watch! I’m sure she will enjoy the experience of playing as part of the Scotland team, and we all wish her luck for her first major tournament.

Amy Anderson (new) – At the tender young age of 18, Amy is our youngest member of the team. Amy played her first tournament on 17th March this year and was immediately asked to become part of the squad. She has tremendous ability for her age and is one to look out for in the future. Good luck Amy, I am sure you will do Scotland proud.

Jenny Lawson (new) – Jenny is another player who has recently came into the international set-up. A player who has vastly improved since I first met her some six months ago. Jenny has excelled at a local level, and will prove to be a strong player for Scotland. Another player who, in my opinion, will excel in the international arena.

Alison Merry (new) – Alison is another player making her international debut for Scotland. She works really hard at improving her game, and is another great addition to the squad. We wish Alison all the best for her inaugural major event in pool – she is sure to do well.
