MARKET DRAYTON’S STAG TO PLAY LSC IN NEIL CLARK POOL FINAL
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Market Drayton’s Stag will meet defending champions LSC at the Tav in the final of the 2014 Neil Clark Memorial Trophy.
The Stag cruised through to the final in four straight frames against the King’s Head at Newport Legion. Wins for George Allen, Ricky Leese, Mick Manning and Neil Dale did the damage against Mick Collins, Ed Keenan, Irene Whittington and Dan Owen to secure the win.
LSC downed the Horns at the Shakespeare, although the score was not available as we closed for press.
Shakespeare A, who beat unbeaten league winners Horns A to secure third in last year’s third-place play-off, will play the Railway Tavern in the inaugural Neil Clark Consolation Shield final.
They produced another impressive performance to down Junction B in five frames at the Railway Tavern. Andy Wakefield, Ross Richards-Jones and Andy Phelan won their singles frames and Dave Marshall teamed up with Wakefield to seal a doubles frame and their place in the final after Stu Till had pulled a frame back for the Norbury side.
The Ralway Tavern were made to work hard for their 4-1 win over the Habedashers Arms at the King’s Head. Stu Morrey, Jason Lloyd and Dave Bristow won their singles racks to make up for Jack Dicken’s defeat and the Newport side cruised into the final when Greg Quinn and Adam Stone came to the rescue in the doubles.
Both the Neil Clark Memorial Trophy final and the new Neil Clark Consolation Shield final will take place at the Royal Navy Club in Bellman’s Yard on Wednesday, April 16th.
