SEMI FINAL Results
Table THIRTEEN. Referee - Kev Brown. Timekeeper - Chris Broomhall
Dave Whitfield (Perkins Cue) & Rob Wharne (St Georges) 3-0 Mick Addison & Duncan Sunderland (Hop Pole C)
Table TWELVE. Referee - Dave Barker. Timekeeper - Alan Mason
Warren Jesney & Ben Crossley (Kennys Dragons) 2-3 Mark Sheerin & Will Edge (GPO Club A)
Whitfield & Wharne reached the Final of the Sunday Doubles after coming through what seemed a close draw against the Hop Pole duo of Addison & Sunderland winning 3-0. However there were chances for the latter who decided that the best form of defence was attack. This looked like it was going to work but missing crucial pots towards the end of their visits proved costly. It was left to Whitfield & Wharne who seized their opportunity to clean up the frames to put themselves in the Final
The other Semi Final proved to be a lot closer with both pairings having good phases in the match. It was Sheerin & Edge who started off brightly showing their intent to go for their chances when they came. They raced to a 2-0 lead but Jesney & Crossley were determined to get back into it and they did with some fine potting which resulted in them levelling the match at 2-2. The 5th frame was closely fought by both doubles but a chance came to Will Edge and he showed a lot of composure to clear the remaing 4 balls to put Sheerin & Edge in the Final.
Table THREE. Referee - Jason Armishaw. Timekeeper - Neil Addison
Dave Whitfield & Rob Wharne 4-0 Mark Sheerin & Will Edge
Both sets of Doubles were keen to get off to a good start with the chance to become Stafford Sunday Town Doubles Champions. Both Whitfield (2007) & Wharne (2009 & 2011) have been champions before whereas Will Edge has been runner up twice before (2005 & 2010) and Mark Sheerin was in his first Final.
The first frame was underway with all players showing a few nerves and some uncharacteristic misses. it turned into a scrappy affair and eventually it was Wharne who seized the intiative and cleared to give himself & Whitfield a 1-0 lead.
The second frame mirrored the first again with both doubles struggling to get a stranglehold. Sheerin & Edge had chances, but a missed opportunity let Whitfield in and he calmly potted the black to claim the second frame to lead 2-0.
The third frame was important for Sheerin & Edge as they needed to respond quickly. Wharne had a 'dry break' and Sheerin then chose his suit but missed his next ball. Whitfield came to the table and slowly found some rythmn which resulted in an 8 ball clearance to give himself & Wharne a 3-0 lead.
The fourth frame was another crucial one for the GPO pair but a 'dry break' by them set Wharne up and he followed Whitfield's clearance in the previous frame with an excellent clearance in this one.
That gave Whitfield and Wharne the Crown and doing so went through the whole tournament not dropping a frame (14-0). Sheerin & Edge should hold their heads high with some fine performances on the way to the final.
A big thanks to Kennys Sportsbar for hosting the event and to all players who helped officiate the Finals night.top
