‘Pot-tastic Pegram’ Wins The 2019 Memorial Cup!

The annual Saffron Walden and District Snooker League Memorial Cup tournament, took place on Sunday 17th November 2019.

In a change to the previous round robin format, the event this year was sponsored and held at JP’s Snooker & Pool Club on a knockout tournament basis with each round being best-of-three frames with prize money going to the winner, runner up and losing semi-finalists.  As usual, matches were played off of current league handicaps.

After a Preliminary Round and Last 16, the Quarter Final Round started to show which players were in good form and Colin Pegram, Simon Giblin, Keith Youell and Leon Mozejko all emerged through to the Semi-Finals with only 1 frame being conceded between them.

Quarter-Finals
Colin Pegram 2-1 Bill Clenshaw
Simon Giblin 2-0 Carl Cooper
Peter Saville 0-2 Keith Youell
Leon Mozejko 2-0 Ellis Pridmore

In a similar vein to the Quarter Finals, the two eventual finalists Leon and Colin both powered through their Semi Final matches with ease to set up a mouth watering clash in the final.

Semi-Finals
Keith Youell 0-2 Leon Mozejko
Colin Pegram 2-0 Simon Giblin

In a very quick final, Colin showed his class and experience by beating defending Champion Leon 2-0 who was appearing in his third final in three years, quite an achievement in itself.  Along with the title, Colin bagged the £100 winners prize money, with Leon picking up £50 for runner up.  Keith and Simon both took a consolation prize of £25 each.  The Memorial Cup will be formally presented to Colin at our Finals / Trophy Evening.

Keith Youell recorded the high break of the day with 45.
