WOODHOUSE FACES PINK IN CARLING NEWPORT POOL SEMI-FINAL
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Russ Woodhouse’s reward for thrashing Mick Beech in the last round of the Carling Newport Pool Open is a home quarter-final tie against the 2007 champion, Colin Pink, from Hinstock.
Whitchurch’s Cyril Evans faces his friend and Market Drayton Open champion Brian Sumner, if Sumner overcomes Aquaduct’s Charlie Hayward in a delayed last 16 tie this week.
Defending Carling Newport Open champion Anthony Heathcote faces the Railway Tavern’s Ben Clewes at the Newport Legion and John Williams has drawn Stafford league supremo Brendon Ruttledge, if he can overcome Telford’s Luke Hayward in this week’s delayed quarter-final tie.
John Williams and Paul Trevor stunned Mick Beech and Colin Farge with a 3-0 demolition in their Worthington’s Newport Doubles’ Open quarter-final. The Audco snooker and pool players were in clinical form to see off one of the fancied pairs to take the doubles’ crown this year. The defeat capped a miserable seven days for Beech, who had been trampled into submission by Woodhouse in his last 16 singles’ match last week.
Williams and Trevor now face the winners of the quarter-final match between the King’s Head’s Mick Collins and Ed Keenan and North Shropshire’s John Digby and Stuart Smith.
If Cyril Evans and Brian Sumner overcome Dave Marshall and Andy Potter this week, they will face Colin Pink and Mick Manning in the second semi-final.
Family commitments forced young Hannah Evans – the sole surviving female in either competition – to concede her singles’ match to Cyril Evans.
All quarter-final singles and semi-final doubles ties must be played by Monday, September 28th. Results should be sent by text message to 07831 123153, clearly stating the names of players and the score.
The finals’ night for both the Carling and Worthington’s Open competitions will take place at the Royal Navy Club, Bellman’s Yard, Newport, on Wednesday, October 21st.
