Stuart Byford powered his way to this month’s Dishin’ Derby title at Mr Pools.
Byford began with a solid 45-15 win over Aiden Britton. This led to a showdown with Shaun Storry who was carrying a -10 point handicap after the last event. As it turned out it made no difference as Byford delivered a confident display to go through 49-18. Storry was probably spent after producing a break of 69 in the previous round.
Paul Youngs then fell by the wayside in the semi-final, leaving Byford just one win from the top prize. Nick Phillips was up to the challenge after striding through all his earlier matches in workmanlike form.
Shaun Storry partnered with Chris Cass took his second win in a row at the Cross Pairs event at Mr Pools.
Bill Kyle & Ben Haliday provided some stiff opposition for openers, losing out with a respectable 5-3 scoreline. In the semi-final, Danny Henderson & Little Shaun were less competitive, only getting a couple of frames on the board in their 5-2 exit.
Nick Phillips joined the exclusive club of players who have won a Friday Night event while carrying a handicap from a previous competition, by taking February’s Dishin’ Derby Title.
Phillips started by sending Evan Edwards home, 45-30 after beginning the match on -10. Jason Shellum was severely out-potted in the next, falling away 45-25.
In the semi finals, Phillips faced a real challenge from Andrew Jackson who came frustratingly close, but failed to convert, 45-38 the score.
Chris Day waited until the end of January to win his first event of 2016.
Last year’s most successful Friday Night entrant started with a match against Little Shaun, who put up little resistance, going out 3-0. In the last 16, Day found no trouble with Matt Pickard either – another 3-0 win there.
Perhaps Danny Henderson would present a bigger challenge? The answer was resounding “No!” as Day whipped through to the Semis, 3-0.
The pairing of Andy Coltart and Chris Day cruised to the win at last night’s Cross Paris event at Mr Pools.
First up, David Finch and Marty Cheasley looked like strong opposition, winning their prelim 4-1, but against Coltart & Day they failed to gel and went out 4-2.
Liam Morrisey & Chris Gallagher were another pair with a solid win behind them, but their semi-final endeavours we cut viciously short as Coltart & Day once again progressed, this time 4-1.
