Steve Cook took no prisoners, winning this week’s Friday Night Competition with ease.
It was a gentle opening match, eased by Stuarts Byford’s generous 2 frame handicap. Stuart was able to claw back one frame before bowing out of the competition (4-1). In round two Steve faced Chris Lingard with all guns blazing, dropping just one frame to sail into the semis (4-1).
In the semi-final, Cook showed no signs of wavering, this time against Nick Phillips who started on minus 1 frame (4-2). Scott Sutton had equal measures of match success in the run up to the final but was unable to take it to the finish, as Steve defeated him with a tidy 4-2 score.
Steve received £45.50 and runner-up Scott won £19.50. Steve starts the next Straight knockout competition on minus 2 and Scott on minus 1
