HOLMES AND PINK SAFELY INTO ROUND
TWO OF CARLING NEWPORT POOL OPEN
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Newport’s Ben Holmes and Hinstock’s Colin Pink were the first two players to book their places in the second round of the 2011 Carling Newport Pool Open.
Both players were taken to a fifth frame decider in two tight matches last week. Holmes required a seven-ball clearance in one rack to stun a disappointed Shakespeare league team mate Andy Potter and Pink, the 2007 Newport Open champion, survived a black ball scare in the fifth frame against Telford’s Charlie Hayward to see him through.
Russ Woodhouse also booked his place in round two with a clear 3-1 victory over Adam Stone at the Railway Tavern on Monday night.
First round matches in the singles, doubles and women’s competitions must be finished by Tuesday, August 2nd. Results should be sent by text message to 07831 123153 with the names of both players and the score clearly stated.
