2017/18 First Ranking Event – Jock McGregor Memorial – Hall Rise

Clay Cross, Derbyshire, 13th May 2017

The Rob Hall juggernaut carried on from monopolising the No.1 spot the previous season, with an emphatic victory in the 2017/18 first ranking event of the season, named in honor of someone with a very similar great love of the game – if maybe a slight gap in the standards achieved. Jock McGregor was a great character and supporter of Billiards.

Hall was unhindered by a handicap mark of -220 and made a superb top break of 408 in defeating Cornwall’s silver fox, Chris Mitchell in the final. Mitchell beat Chris Achilles in the semis, Brian Harvey was Hall’s semi final victim. Earlier, Hall made 168, 146, 179, 128, 108 and 202 breaks. As expected, the handicaps made for some tight games and one or two good results, Mark Hirst made a 145 break in winning his first game but Peter Clarke narrowly saw him off in the next round. Jim McCann made a return to form in winning the plate event, beating Mark Graham in the final, Peter Johnson and Steve Crosland making the semi finals.
