Local Stafford player Rob Wharne (Institute SC) became National Amatuer Champion for the second time (Previous winner 2010). The England International came through a field of 512 players, playing 9 rounds in 2 days at Vauxhall Holiday Park, Great Yarmouth. He beat fellow England player Karl Sutton in the Final 8-2 with some outstanding potting and tactical play. in the earlier rounds he saw of the challenge of Ryan Hussey 6-0 (1st Rd), Ben Young 6-0 (2nd Rd), Chris Distin 6-3 (3rd Rd), Nathan Strick 6-2 (4th Rd), Glenn Cahir 6-5 (5th Rd), Lewis Calcutt 6-5 (6th Rd), Dane Jones 7-3 (Q/F), John Waller 7-3 (S/F) and Karl Suttton 8-2 in the Final. So after 81 frames played in which he won 58 of them and after a gruelling 48 hours of non stop pool, he achieved the accolade of the national Amatuer Champion 2016.
He also turned out for TT Players (Newcastle under Lyme) in the Interleague Team National Knockout. He reached the Semi Finals of this tournament, just missing ou to eventual champions Sun Valley (Derbys).
