The Stan Bent Team Knockout Final
Played Sunday 9th June 2019
@Kennys Sports Bar
Institute Jaffas 4-0 The Kennys Cue
The Institute achieved the league and cup double and also going through the entire season unbeaten
The Final was closer than the score line suggests as both teams tried to get a hold of the match.
Guvvy Gill (Jaffas) cleared well against Martin Priestley after a mistake by the latter to make it 1-0. Up next saw Daz Lighfoot take on 1st div most wins winner Mike Barker and a missed pot by the latter, where it seemed certain to win the frame let Lighfoot back in and he cleared to make it 2-0. Dave Barker was drawn against Rob 'whacker' Wharne in frame 3 and after breaking, the cueball was left stranded. An attempt to play safe wasn’t safe enough for Wharne, and he duly cleared the table in one visit. Frame four saw Ian Lewis take on Scott Price. Lewis showed some good form and had the first opportunity, but unfortunately he fell short with position on the black and after a failed attempt Price duly took his chance and sealed the winners trophy for the Jaffas running out 4-0 winners
Thank you to Kennys Sportsbar on hosting the event. Also thank you to both Shaun Cooper and Kevin Brown on refereeing the Final

Congratulations to Irene Wood (Kennys Islanders) on becoming the Stafford Sunday Pool League Ladies champion “Pippa Steele Trophy” for the 4th time in a row.
She saw off the challenge of Kirsty Lawrence (GPO B)4-0 in the Final, where the match was a lot closer than the score line suggests. However the experience of Irene at county level for Staffs showed. Kirsty was in her first Final and is the only Female to have beaten Irene in the last 4 years (in a group game last year)
In the Semi Finals Irene ran out a 3-0 winner over Shropshire County player Clair Maslin (Kennys 8’s) and Kirsty defeated West Mids County player Lynda Simpson (Kennys Titans) 3-1.
Earlier Kirsty had to come through a 3 Ladies group play off against Adele Cooper (Highfields B)& Hazel Sanders (Star & Stripes) winning both matches 2-0 and 2-1.
Thank you to Peter Sandhar for refereeing the Final and thank you to Kennys for hosting the event.
