Senior Singles Runner Up - Tony Kay
National Senior singles
Players Lounge Stoke on Trent 24th Sept 2011
This is the 3rd year of holding this event,so there was a talent of quality pool players.
Our Senior Referee for the day was Richard Rhodes.
In the group stages a few went down to the the final game to decide who went through to the last 16.
In the Last 16 2 games Peter Sadler v Mark Bradburn and Tony Carr v Stephen Quinnell went to the deciding frame.
The Quarter finals were Best of 7's .with Peter Sadler running out winner against Dave Minister.
Tony Kay on the final frame beating Ian Turner and Alfie Powley and Chris Littler both 4-0 winners against Jeff Spence and Stephen Quinnell.
The Semi finals were Best of 9 these were really entertaining matches with both going to the wire. Peter Sadler v Tony Kay at one point looked like it was going to be a whitewash for Tony but Peter stormed back to 4 each and Tony only just managed to pip him in the final frame. Gripping stuff.
Alfie Powley v Chris Littler went frame to frame with Chris just having the edge.
So to the final Tony v Chris.
After a long day of pool ,these two still put on a show and yet again it went to the deciding frame with Chris Littler taking the last frame to win 4-5 and become National Senior singles Champion 2011.
Our thanks go to all the players as everything went smoothly and to Lee /Gareth and all staff at Players Lounge for looking after us.
Yours in Sport
