MARSHALL LAW FOR POTTER IN NEWPORT POOL OPEN
Last year’s beaten Worthington Newport Doubles finalists, Andy Lycett and Andy Heathcote, were left shell-shocked at the Shakespeare in one of the remaining first round matches.
They sailed into a 2-0 lead only to be pegged back to 2-2 by a resurgent Andy Potter and Dave Marshall. The favourites blamed the table for their downfall, but there was no doubting Potter imposed Marshall law in the fifth frame and duly bowled the hapless Lycett and Heathcote out of the competition.
Anthony Winfield was taken to a fifth frame in his first round tie against Bob Perry at the Railway Tavern, before heading into the third round, courtesy of a bye he was handed in round two.
The first of the second round matches take place this week, with the remaining first round ties set to be completed by today (Friday).
All second round ties are to be played by Sunday, August 23rd. Results should be sent by text message to 07831 123153, clearly stating the names of players and the score.
