STAFFORD 9-9 LEEK B

Stafford welcomed leek to kennys sportsbar for there 2nd Interleague game of the current season and got off to the worse possible start losing the first 2 games through wood and cooper 

Next up the new kid on the block Simpson to make the score 1-2

 next up was Shaw and Addison and it didn't get any better 1-4 in favour of  the leek side disaster loomed but old favourite broomhall and captain mason won there frames to make it 3-4 game on next in was Mitchell and loughead 3-6 down 

Mason bought the changes in and was delighted with the subs desire and also team spirit where other players could of dropped there heads and moaned a bit  Sunderland and jenkinson both won well followed by Simpson to win and keep his 100% strike rate going 6-6 

Time to take the game the next 2 games were played perfectly by both Shaw and Whitfield but an uncharacteristic miss on the black and a mis cue saw both players snatch defeat from the jaws of victory 6-8 next up the gruesome twosome and again they deliver mason and broomhall with the wins and broomhall with the shot of the night on the black 8-8 

On next Mitchell who was unlucky to go in off with 2 shots and the game at his mercy 8-9 

Repeat of last week and up to loughead to get the draw and he delivered again a solid frame and some nice touches to win the frame 9-9

interleague match one

Tt beize 9-9 Stafford 

Staffords 1st fixture in the interleague saw them travel to hanley duck who

Boasted no fewer than 2 debutants and the new kid on the block Jake Cooper and bearing in mind also Pete ' I'm working ' Sandhar returned to the fold 

Stafford started well with Irene wood winning well to take the lead but Pete Sandhar couldn't follow suit and scores were level mason was up next and wasn't at his best at all but managed to gain victory and 2-1 To the staffordians 

Unfortunately that was that for a while loses for 

Addison, Shaw, broomhall & loughead saw the score swing in favour of the stoke team 5-2 time to bring on the new blood and Mitchell and cooper sealed victory 

H/T 5-4 to TT 

underway 2nd half mason in again but still looking like he hadn't played before managed to lose as well as Irene wood who was unlucky not to win 

 but on the other table the old stalwart Mick addison was doing the bizz 7-5 TT 

new player Matty Simpson and Jake Cooper were next to go and undefied there age competently securing the victory with Simpson most impressive 7-7 

Mitchell and Shaw on next but unfortunately Shaw broke and didn't see the table again and Mitchell followed suit 

9-7 TT 

So back to the old faithful and boy did they deliver loughead playing some great shots to pull of a victory and broomhall with the shot of the night such a delicate swerve to pot the black .

Final result 9-9 

M.O.M - Matty Simpson for a fine display in his only game

Thanks to everyone who played and see you all next Friday

Venue : Kennys Sportsbar

  Congratulations to Hop Pole C’s Alan Mason & Mick Addison on becoming the Stafford Sunday Pool League Doubles champions. They saw off the challenge of Kennys Bear’s Gavin Davies & Jim Simpson in the Final, winning 4-1.
  Alan Mason was runner up last season (with Duncan Sunderland) and wins his first individual trophy alongside Mick Addison who had now won his 3rd doubles title (Previously 2001 & 2006 -both with John Grobnik). Gav Davies was a previous winner back in 2005 (with Lee Whitehouse) whereas it was Jim Simpson first final.
  In the semi final, defending champions Rob Wharne & Dave Whitfield suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Davies & Simpson. The match featured 3 x 8 ball clearances, 2 by Davies and 1 by Wharne.
In the other Semi Final, Mason & Addison won 3-0 against first time semi finalists Brendon Ruttledge & Andy Pearcey.
  In the Final it was a game of tension and a tactical fight. The match took a turn when both Mason & Addison changed the tempo and fine clearances from both Mason & Addison clinch the doubles crown in front of a good size crowd.

Rob Wharne (Institute SC) long unbeaten run finally came to an end after losing to Barker 4-3 in the Semi Final. A 46 match winning streak which had seen the England international dominate the Sunday Singles competition since 2010.
However Gav Davies seized his chance and was flawless on the Finals Night as he saw off the challenge of Warren Jesney 3-0 (quarter final), Alan Sim 4-1 (Semi Final) and then Mike Barker 5-2 in the Final. Mike Barker route to the final saw him ran out a 3-0 winner over Aaron Atkin (quarter final) before his famous 4-3 win over Rob Wharne in the semi Final
