BRING CUPS TO COV & DISTRICT MEETING @ NEWDIGATE ON 2nd OCTOBER
Staged at The Florence, Stoke on Trent
Mark Burdett was unable to play due to injury, J Baddeley, K Kitlinski, M Warrington, S Pratt, R Burdett Mnr & C Wilkins lost in round 1.
H Chapman narrowly lost 20/21 in round 2 along with S Donovan, M Horton, W Kay & Matt Allen -- beaten by eventual winner Greg Smith.
Our last man standing was Haunchwoods Darren Day who went out in round 3.
The final was between Josh Bradburn from Shropshire and Greg Smith (W&W County star) playing under the Staffordshire banner because W&W did not enter this year.
Greg was looking like a winner all day and was the bookies favourite at 3/1 before the first jack was delivered.
Finding what proved to be a difficult mark along one edge Greg dispatched 6 opponents without ever looking like losing. Along with the Midland Masters title he wins a place in the Champion of Champions.
Thanks to Atherstone Grove for use of their green for this final.
