The EABA’s very own Billiards ace Chris Taylor has again showed what an accomplished cueman he is, winning the Eastern Counties singles title for the third time in four years against another EABA stalwart Phil Mumford.
Chris started well with visits of 86 and 82 Phil Mumford his opponent in the final could only muster a reply of 51 and looked at little at sea, Yalie chipped in with 61 but Chris raced round the table for a 71 unfinished. The final scores being Chris Taylor 331 and Phil Mumford 198.
The Bostonian was also part of the team which retained the Eastern Counties League, along with fellow Lincolnshire competitors Bem French and Rob Hall.
Taylor has had a very successful season, reaching eight competition finals and his world ranking sees him rated seventh.
His next outing is in Leeds from July 19-20, here he will again be battling it out with Phil Mumford for the CIU National billiards title and combined snooker and billiards titles.
Mike Wright ( 10 Shot)
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you of the passing of Mike Wright.
Mike as we all knew him to be 10 SHOT, he actually played Peter Gilchrist in a comp when he got his 10 shot and recieved more Euro’s for the 10 shot than Peter did for winning the comp and used to rib Peter about it .
Mike was not only a fine Billiards player but also an accomplished Grade 1 Billiards Referee who was proud to have refereed not only a regular at our ABC’s But also at World Championship level.
Our thoughts are with his family.
I spoke to Theresa last night and she told me that he was fighting his way back to strong health and had just started to put a little weight back on up until last week when things started to go down hill a little.
I have spoken to many EABA members and have all asked me to send our condolences onto Theresa.
R.I.P. Mike a true EABA Gentleman.

Breaks R.Hall.1st Session (154,138,95,51)
Everyone was expecting a great final and let me tell you it lived up to expectations Phil Mumford was behind in the morning session 481 to Rob Halls 823.
After that I think Phil wanted to show the people watching just how he can play he started potting as we know he can and this led to a couple of nice 100+ breaks But Rob was not going to let this go easy and when at the top he just flowed . Brilliant match all round both should be very pleased with their performances.
Breaks. R.Hall 1st Session (178,98,85,61)2nd.(282,169,109,52).
