We"ll miss Richard in Brighton but we will be amply compensated by the wit and guile of a completely independent Ian "HaworthBantam" Burnett. 

Ian will not be supporting Scotland  :D and I will not be supporting Ireland  ;D so your viewing pleasure will not be interupted by trashy, personal feeling induced comments like YOU"LL NEVER BEAT THE IRISH....

We will be video interviewing England player Bob Malin over the weekend, to find out his thoughts on becoming APAT's player of the year in season two. 

Bob is a real gentleman, similar in many ways to season one player of the year Kevin Shutt, and we hope to gain an insight into Bob"s game, poker background and his plans for season three. 

Look out for the interview and an article celebrating Bob"s achievement once the excitement about the European Team Championship dies down.
