    A PIONEER potter from Kilburn has revealed that she’s “over the moon” after helping England chalk up a memorable victory over their rivals at the Nations Cup. 

    Done Our Bit (DOB) Dynamos player Michaela McEvoy (pictured first on the left) became the first ever winner of the Chalk Farm Pool League’s new women’s singles title in May. 

    And now she has added to her trophy cabinet yet again after winning nine of her 16 frames to help England win the European Blackball Association Nations Cup. 

    Michaela was an integral part of the England Two team that edged past rivals Scotland 11-10 in the semi finals, which were held in Coleraine, Northern Ireland. 

    In an all-England final, she again displayed her skills and composure at the table as the second team beat their first team counterparts 11-7 in a thrilling showpiece. 

    “It was a great experience and fantastic to be part of a winning England team,” she said. “I won nine of my frames but lost seven, so my aim now is to improve before the World Championships, which get under way in Yorkshire next April.” 

    Earlier this year the 42-year-old, who returned to club action on Monday night as DOB Dynamos beat The Boot 7-2 in Division Two, called on more women to take to the pool table. 

     “Don’t let the fact you’re a woman stop you from playing the game,” she said. 

    “Women can be equally as good as men. It would be great to see even more women from across Camden and Islington playing pool.” 

    Meanwhile in the Chalk Farm Pool League, King’s Cross Hurricanes were in unstoppable form in Division One as they beat Peckwater TA 8-1, while Boston Arms ran out 7-2 victors against King’s Cross Hawks. 

    There was also a good win for Green Man, who beat Boston Old Skool 6-3.
