Windsor Billiards Classic

David Elliott made it three wins in a row in the Windsor Classic when
he defeated old rival Paddy Donnelly in a great final. Playing best of
five games of 150 up, Davy won the match 3-1, twice overcoming
early breaks of over ninety by his opponent. In the first game Donnelly´s
break of 98 was countered by runs of 35 and 80 by Elliott to secure
him victory by just five points. To his credit, Donnelly came back to
level the match by winning the next game, and looked like going ahead
after a break of 97 in the third. But Elliott, with breaks of 57, 34 and 36
took the game by 22 points, then wrapped up the match with breaks of
40 and 65 unfinished in fourth game, to take his third title. The match
was refereed by Jim Stewart and marked by Billy Doherty. Cheques
were handed over by Ricki Dean, Secretary of the Windsor Club who
sponsored the event.

International Clash

Northern Ireland will take two teams to Harrogate to play England on
the week-end of January 16th-17th. The eight man senior team will
compete for the “Friendly Cup” whilst the junior squad of four players
will take on the English juniors for the “Kingsman Cup”. Having visited
Harrogate recently with my international team-mate Davy Elliott for
the Riley UK Championships, I know that a warm welcome awaits our
travelling party of 26. Full results and scores will appear in the next
issue of The Amateur Billiard Player.
