STU MORREY ROMPS ON IN DANFORDS NEWPORT POOL OPEN
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Newport’s Stu Morrey was the first player to join the eight byes in the third round of the Danfords Motor Auction Newport Pool Open.
The Tavern cue was taken to a deciding frame by Cheswardine’s Simon Walley in an entertaining match. Morrey had stormed into a 1-0 lead and could easily have won the second before dominating the third.
Safety play got Walley out of a hole in the fourth and he looked set to snatch the match in the fifth after clearing all his colours. But he was millimetres too long with his position on the black ball. He duly fouled and Morrey used his two shots to complete an unlikely clearance to seal the match.
Former Newport league player Andy Lycett returned to Newport from Ellesmere and teamed up with Jack ‘Rutherford’ Jones to put out Telford’s Charlie and Luke Hayward in four frames in a delayed round one encounter in the Shakespeare Newport Doubles Open.
Lycett showed glimpses of his old brilliance with two useful clearances, but Hayward senior will be rueing a costly miss in the fourth that ruined his chance of levelling the match.
Stafford’s Neil Dale and former Newport Open champion Brendan Ruttledge cruised into the last eight with a flattering 3-0 victory over fellow Stafford league players Dan Haynes and Kevin Moore at the Shakespeare. Haynes had a chance to make it 1-1, but Ruttledge prevailed to make it 2-0 and Dale held his nerve to make a rapid-fire clearance in rack three to confirm the rout.
Business commitments and match unavailability meant that Dave Bristow and Andy Richardson ceded their first round doubles match to Mike and Luke Jones. The father and son duo will now play Kim Rigby and Lauren Heathcote in round two.
All second round matches must be completed by Monday, August 27th and results should be sent by text to 07831 123153.
