doubles finals night
Played @Kennys Sportsbar
Congratulations to both Dave Whitfield (The Kennys Cue) & Rob Wharne (Institutes SC) on defending their doubles crown after a hard fought Final victory over Alan Mason & Duncan Sunderland (both Hop Pole C). The Final was watched by large turnout and it was Wharne who was showing good form with 2 fine clearances in the first 2 frames. Mason pulled one back with a good finish but Wharne restored the 2 frame lead after a good set up by Whitfield earlier in the frame. Wharne got a kick after attempting a cut into the corner which let Sunderland in to pot an easy black into the corner. That made the score 3-2 in Whitfield & Wharne's favour. However it looked odds on when Mason was on a clearance off the break but an uncharacteristic miss by Mason let Wharne back in and he cleared the table, potting the black in the middle bag.

singles finals night
Played @Kennys Sportsbar
Sunday 16th October 2016
Congratulations to Rob Wharne on winning his 7th Singles Title in a row. After winning the Doubles the week before and the National amateurs, it's been quite an eventful week for the Institute player. He had to stave of the challenge of both Jamie Woolley (St Georges) and Gav Davies (Kennys Bear) in the quarters and semi finals dropping only one frame in the process. He faced St Georges A Jason Armishaw in the final and it was Armishaw's first ever final. However all he did was watch Wharne continue his good recent form and although Armishaw had a couple of chances, it was Wharne who eased to a 5-0 win and maintain his unbeaten run in this competition which stems back as far as 2009!
Well done to Rob Wharne on this outstanding achievement and to all the finalists who appeared on the night
Stuart Hardy (Kennys Killers) 0-3 Jason Armishaw (St Georges A)
Jason Armishaw 4-2 Paul Loughhead
ROB WHARNE 5-0 Jason Armishaw
Thank you to Kennys Sportsbar for hosting the Finals
singles plate finals night
Played at Kennys Sportsbar
Played on Sunday 16th October 2016
Congratulations to Andy Rawlinson (Kennys Bear) on becoming the inaugural Singles Plate winner after beating Gaz Nicklin (Metro Bar) in the Final 3-0. Both players had lots of chances but it was the experience of county player Rawlinson who clinched the trophy. Rawlinson saw off the challenge of both Adam Lilburne and Brendon Ruttledge without dropping a frame. Nicklin also saw off Robbie Jenkinson (2-1) and Andy Palin (3-1) in the previous rounds. A good final and a successful first campaign for this event.
Brendon Ruttledge (Joiners Ams) 2-1 Paddy Baidwan (St Georges)
Brendon Ruttledge 0-3 Andy Rawlinson
ANDY RAWLINSON 3-0 Gaz Nicklin
