Local star player Craig Steadman was there among other notable talent such as Michael Wild, Kamran Ashraf, Simon Fitzsimmons and more local young talent. I managed to win 3 matches, 3-1, 3-0 and finally 3-2 to qualify for the final stages later in the year. I think I managed to bring my final opponent down to my level a little by keeping him pegged on the back cush quite a lot, which I needed to do as my positional play all day left a lot to be desired, however, given how little practice I get nowadays I was very pleased to knock in some good balls, a few small breaks here and there, best of the match was only 45 I think but it proved enough with me finally winning by potting the brown. Can't wait for the finals now, I will have my new Mike Wooldridge cue then, hope it brings out my best form....I'm gonna need a few miracles hahahah.
Craig Steadman was the other qualifier on the day, I just hope I don't draw him in the finals !
