Congratulations to George Hall on winning the Championship in its first season. George needed to finish today two places ahead of Adrian, Unfortunatly Adrian was held up in a massive traffic jam on the M60 due to a road accident. He decided to turn around and head back to Liverpool as there was no way he could make it to the club. This left George now only needing to win his 1st round match to become club Champion which he did comfortably against Arthur Wright. George went on to Beat Kevin Jones in the semi final , and then to come back from 0-5 down in the final to beat Mark clderbank 11-9 to end a fantastic season.

George on his way to the championship against Arthur

 

It gives me great pleasure to award George the trophy and free entry into the Manchester open next month

 

Thank you all for making this a great event we had 30 players over the year. I hope you all enjoyed it and will come back again.

Please leave any coments in the guest book or use the have your say page.

Results September 2008

Today we only had 4 players, So i changed the format just for this week.

We played an 11pt round robin. I played aswell. i do not normally play in jackpot 1.

It took six and half hours for us all to play three 11pt matches

Dorothy Lee and myself won 2 each

Jon Williams in his last match was trying to beat George Hall to send 3 of us into a 1pt play off. But George won,

 

Leaving Dorothy to take 1st place as she beat me in our head to head

 

Prize pool was £40

Afterwards we went to a lovely tapas bar, a good day was had by all

Dorothy keeping an eye on George
