NPO 2008 Coors Newport Pool Open 1st round draw



For immediate release
Monday, July 7th, 2008



NEWPORT (Shropshire): The first round draw has been made for the 2008  Coors Newport Pool Open and 2008 Worthington’s Newport Pool Doubles Open, with 43 singles players and 20 doubles pairs entered.


This means that there will be a qualifying round in each competition, with 22 players playing a first round in the singles and 21 going through to round two. In the doubles, eight pairs will play a qualifying round to form the round of 16.


The pick of the singles’ draw is the clash between the league’s unbeaten Andy Lycett and the talented Shakespeare player Ben Clews, with former semi-finalist Ray Talbot facing a tricky visit to the Junction to play Ian Mason. Defending champion Colin Pink has a bye into the last 32, but the 2006 champion Paul Trevor faces a nervy clash with the in-form Muxton player Charlie Hayward.


A potentially explosive clash between two former Open Champions is the highlight of the first round of the doubles, with Paul Trevor and John Williams set to face Colin and John Pink. Last year’s semi-finalists, Ian Fearnley and Neil Cartwright, face Dave Price and Neil Hazeley for a place in the last 16, but defending champions, Andy Lycett and Anthony Heathcote, have a bye into round two. 


All matches will be played to Newport Pool League rules over the best of five frames at a venue to be decided by the home player.


The away player must make contact with the home player to decide the date and time of the match, but all first round games must be completed by Monday, July 28th.
