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.
