Well done to Darren Kell on winning the latest ABC, in a fairly close match. Well done to Steve Crosland who struck good form in defeating Rob Hall on his way to the final. In the plate steady Eddie Duggan defeated Chris Taylor and seems to be our plate specialist at the moment.
There is a small video of the plate final in our video section the quality is not great but worth a watch.

The 3rd ABC has been held at Clay Cross
A good turnout with 38 players taking to the tables ,An early meeting of Rob Hall & Phil Mumford in the first round with Rob putting Phil to the sword by 463 –89
was not a true reflection on the way Phil had played in the prelim.
Peter Shelley–Chris Taylor –Chris Mitchell all played well but one
of the best matches was between Geof Brassington & Mark Hatton, Mark was always infront but with only minutes to go and Geof 50+ behind ran out with a 61 potting the red as the bell went..
Rob Continued to play as he had all day with a 221 in the final against Darren Kell just to add another double to his 381 earlier in the day. The Plate A new name on the plate was Eddie Duggan . Some great close games had been played in the plate and none closer than the final between Eddie and Brian Harvey we all know how good Brians game is and now we can see just how competative the plate can be. Eddie beat Brian 255–245 and after watching Eddie play in our local league it was no surprise to see him win the plate. Tom

As we all know Mike Billinge Died last week after a long illness,He will be a great loss to the game of Billiards as he stood out as one of our finest Referees, always willing to help us lesser reff’s out when required, He showed me once the house that he was born in in Darley Dale,Seems fitting that a Master should be brought up near the home of The Masters eh? A funeral service will be held at Chudleigh Church, Chudleigh ,Devon( TQ130HX ) at 12 noon ,Thursday 15th August 2013 . Tom H
