The Captains Cup (07/04/13)
« on: 07/04/13, 19:30 »

Congratulations to Nav Hussain who defeated Steve Burrows 2-1 in the final of The Captains Cup on Sunday.

The finalists: Steve Burrows and Nav Hussain

Burrows won the first frame convincingly with a 70-23 scoreline.  Burrows also did well in the second frame but Hussain finished strongly to win 74-40 and set up a tense decider in front of a good crowd.  Burrows started well in the final frame, a run of 21 putting him close to the winning line.  Hussain did brilliantly though to put together a 31 clearance, stealing the title from his grade 3 opponent (frame score 80-62).

It was a great final and even the staff said they enjoyed watching it.  Whilst on that subject a huge thanks to the management and staff at The Embankment for looking after us and opening the club outside its normal Sunday opening times (12pm - 4pm).  The food, beer and surroundings were excellent.

Noteable mentions to Matt Walters and Glenn Price who missed out on a place in the final by the narrowest of margins (3 way play off with Lucky Nav) and also to Lee Jones who made the day's highest break of 45.

Great day and well organised Steve, matches began exactly when stated, great stuff. Well done to Burrows for winning his group matches and making it into the final. There wasn't much in the last frame, just one red that hit the jaws and then I had to take it, else would have been out of reach.

Thanks Matt, you also played good all day, result tables show how close it was !!

It was a great day, a massive thanks to Steve Butler for organising yet another successful day!

Well done to Steve Burrows for cruising into the final in his group he played very solid snooker all day and was very unlucky to find a very on form Nav in the final.

The second group was unbelievably close in the end (personally I was gutted not to make the final, but hey ho)

It was a very enjoyable day, looking forward to the next one already  :)

Thanks for a good day Steve and the Embankment crew.

Steve, Was I bottom of group 2 on reverse alphabetical order or just to make Shawn and Adam feel better?  :o

Steve played well in the final but Nav pulled it together at the end when it mattered most.  Congrats mate.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed themselves.  I love the Captains Cup for that reason, everyone approaches it in the correct manner and has a good time.  It was great to see so many players staying right until the end and I'm looking forward to next year's event.

Hopefully next year we'll get a few more Team Captains and NBSA Committee Members in attendance.
