Malta enjoyed more success in the European Pool Championships that are being held in Ireland as Dejan Grech and the Malta Under 25 national team have booked their place in the final.
Grech, the current European champion, remained on course to retain his title in the men’s singles when he brushed aside Irish player Gary Bracken 7-2 in the semi-finals.
The final of the men’s singles was close to be an all-Maltese final but Lydan Debono lost his semi-final match against Luke Gilbert, of England, 7-6.
Debono’s hopes of snatching a dramatic victory evaporated when he was unlucky to pot the black ball during the decider.
Meanwhile, Grech will be contesting his second final on Thursday when he joins the U-25 team in the teams competition.
The Malta A side reached the final when they beat their team-mates forming part of Malta B 5-1 in the semi-final.
The Maltese team will face Ireland A who had the better of England A in the other semi-final.
