NEWPORT POOL OPEN FINALS SET FOR
ROYAL NAVY CLUB ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Either Newport’s Anthony Heathcote or Telford’s Charlie Hayward will meet the winner of the clash between Newport’s Andy Miles and Stafford’s Neil Dale in the 2012 Newport Open Pool final at the Royal Navy Club next Wednesday night (October 17th).
Joining them on the night to battle out the outcome of the Shakespeare Newport Doubles Open will be the winners of this week’s semi-final matches between Market Drayton’s George Allen/Mick Manning and Newport’s Mike and Luke Jones and Stafford’s Neil Dale/Brendan Ruttledge and Newport’s Ross Goodchild/Graham Tigwell.
Last year’s finalist Lauren Heathcote has set up a repeat of her match against defending champion Irene Whittington in the Railway Tavern Newport Ladies Pool Open.
Heathcote made sure of his singles semi-final place with a dogged display against Darren Pountney at Newport Legion. The match went to a tiebreak frame and the former champion managed to hold his nerve to take the frame and reach the last four after some solid safety play by both players. “It’s over and Pout,” joked Heathcote later.
Andy Miles homed in on his place in the last four by beating Ian Perry in four frames at the King’s Head. Perry made the better start to take the first frame, before Miles got his act together in the next three to book a showdown with the in-form Neil Dale.
Making sure of their place in the semi-finals of the Shakespeare Newport Doubles Open were Mike and Luke Jones, who prevailed over Ian Roberts and Steve Morrey in three straight frames.
The Royal Navy Club will play host to the matches from 7.30pm on Wednesday night (17th). Everyone is welcome, refreshments will be served and it is hoped that all teams from the Newport Pool League will be represented in the audience.
