The County Cup (17/02/13)
« on: 17/02/13, 23:03 »

Congratulations to Steve Butler & Steve Burrows who defeated Nav Hussain & Wayne Martin 3-2 in the final on Sunday evening to be crowned The County Cup champions 2013.

Steve Burrows in action

Burrows narrowly beat Martin in frame one, 75-71.  Butler then put the underdogs 2-0 up with a 73-39 win over Hussain.  Hussain & Martin found their form in the alternate shot pairs frame, winning it easily 71-23.  The fourth frame was arguably the best frame of the match.  Burrows received 28 points start and he knocked in a nice 22 break to go 50 in front.  Hussain replied with a 34 break to get back into the frame but his finest break was a 25 clearance to steal the frame 74-73 and set up a nervy decider.  Butler was receiving 14 points start from Martin and he got off to a good start to go over 40 points clear.  However Martin fought back with a nice 33 break which made for a tense finish.  Ultimately it was Butler who potted a thin pink in the middle to take the frame 74-61 and also seal the match.

The highest break of the day was a 55 by Nav Hussain.

All fourteen first match losers went into a singles plate tournament.  They were split into two groups of seven with Jon Sully coming out on top in group one (5 wins from 6) and Matt Walters winning group two (6 wins from 6).  They then played out a best of 5 frame final and Sully went 2-0 up.  Walters hit back in style though and he went on to win 3-2.  Walters made the highest break of the plate, a fine run of 69.

The tournament was held at Spot On, Hucknall and the NBSA would like to thank Pat, Tom and all the staff at the club for their hospitality.

The format seemed to be enjoyed by all competitors and a scotch doubles tournament may be on the cards next season.

Thanks to everyone who took part.  Our next tournament is The Clarry Cup on 17th March (venue TBA).

Well done Steve and Steve, a good win in a tough looking final.

I hope the photos become a regular feature of tournament reports, they really bring the event alive.

Thanks to Spot On Hucknall as well and to Steve B for his excellent organisation, even if it didn't prevent one player from going to the wrong venue, and 4 players somehow all not realising they were playing the wrong format in the doubles (yes, very embarrassing).

A massive congrats to the two Steves from what i saw you were both playing very well.

A brilliant day, which ran very smoothly as normal, shame Rob and I didnt make the final but Wayne and Nav were outstanding and basically just out classed us.

Brilliant day............ Cant wait for the next one  :-*

It was a very good day out, meeting all the snooker lads. Good to see dave jobling and malc again... malc with his tactical snooker :)) How did you miss that black !!! (sorry to remind you malc)

I surprised myself when i won the match against s burrows, one stage with 50 odd points behind, i lost hope. But decided to give it my best and see what happens, but s burrows did play excellent safety shots which forced me into many shots. Well played guys.
