Rob Wharne becomes Stafford Sunday Pool Singles Champion for a 3rd year in a row!
Lynda Simpson becomes Stafford Sunday Ladies Singles Pool Champion for the first time in its 2nd year!
Rob Wharne joined an elite of previous multiple champions with his 3rd title after seeing of the challenge of Steve Finney 5-3 in the final of the Stafford Sunday Pool League Singles Knockout. Only Mark Bailey & Chris Fox have won the title in history on 3 consecutive occasions. Bailey (actually on 4 occasions) in 1993, 94, 95 & 96, Fox in 1985, 86 & 87.
Rob Wharne (Rileys Cue) was drawn against 2007 champion Andy Rawlinson (Rileys A) in the Quarters and ran out a 3-0 victor including 2 'dishes' to set up his night. Steve Finney (Rileys Dogs) (2009 & 2010 runner up) was drawn against 2011 runner up Dave Whitfield (Rileys Cue) and also recorded an identical score to put himsef through to the semi final. 2009 champion Dave Barker (Rileys Cue) saw off the challenge of experienced Mick Addison (Hop Pole C) also with a 3-0 success which included a 'dish' to reach his 4th semi final. Giles Eastwood's (Rileys A) first appearnce in a Quarter Final saw him overcome 2003 runner up Spencer Trow (Emerald Rebels) 3-2 in a hard fought match.
The first Semi Final saw a repeat of last year's match between Rileys Cue teammates Rob Wharne & Dave Barker drawn against each other. Barker was 2-1 up and looked to be a good position to take the 4th but an uncharacteristic miss let Wharne back in and he never looked backed as he sealed the next 2 frames to win 4-2. The other Semi Final saw Giles Eastwood pair up against Steve Finney and this match followed a similar pattern with Eastwood opening up a 2-1 lead but Finney ground out a fine finish to take the last 3 frames to win 4-2 and put himself in the Final for the 3rd time in 4 years.top
