Thursday 4th April saw the mouth watering final between Barry Watson and Sam Millett. The match got off to a very even start. Sam finally winning the first game 9-4, despite Barry being 3-0 up. We knew then that this match would be very close.
Sure enough the second game started with Sam 4-0 up but Barry won it 9-6.
The third game was no less competitive but Sam just couldn`t win the points when it mattered and Barry won it convincingly 9-1 much to Sam`s frustration.
The fourth game was almost a mirror image of the third with Sam finally winning it 9-3.
Up to this point both players had made few errors and both players had been stretching to get to shots which looked impossible to get to. At 2 games all, it was all down to the fifth game and they kept up the incredibly high standard with Sam eventually winning it 9-5.
There was no doubt these were the 2 best players in the club playing out a fantastic final.
