‘Perfect Peter’ Wins The 2016 President’s Cup And Ingram Wins The Plate!

The Annual President’s Cup, sponsored by Bullet Brickwork UK Ltd was held on Sunday 31 January 2016 at Saffron Snooker Club, Saffron Walden, Essex.  The handicap singles best-of-3-frames event was supported with a strong field of 27 league players in attendance, all hoping to win the first prize of £80 and be the next name engraved on the prestigious President’s Cup.

Semi Final Results;
Peter Saville 2-0 Richard Malyon
Mark Halls 2-0 Steve Stalley

Being virtually a scratch final, Mark received a 1 point headstart and in the first frame produced possibly his best frame of the day potting everything in sight and rapidly took the first frame by over 50 points.  Peter responded with a consistent display of potting in the second to draw the match level at 1-1.  With the title coming down to a deciding frame, Peter produced the type of snooker needed to take the match to Mark and in the end was too strong and secured a 2-1 win to take the President’s Cup title and collect the £80 first prize.  Mark received the consolation of the £40 Runners Up prize which he has donated to charity.  Both of the losing semi finalists, Steve Stalley and Richard Malyon each received £20.

Those players who got knocked out in their first playing round got a free entry in the Plate Tournament with one frame being played in each round including the final.  16 players entered and it was Adam Ingram and Bob Fox who got through to the final.  Adam won the one-frame-winner-takes-all-final with a break of 46 to add the President’s Cup Plate title to his many singles titles, along with the £20 first prize.

Adam Ingram’s break of 76 in the first round secured him the £20 Tournament High Break prize.  See below for all the recorded breaks over 25.

For those that didn’t manage success on the snooker tables, a chance to go home with a raffle prize still offered some consolation, and just before the semi finals the draw took place.

Some photos of the event are on the SWDSL Facebook Page, and all trophies will be presented at the Annual Presentation/Finals Evening at Saffron Snooker Club.

Apologies were received from our SWDSL President Dan Lewis and tournament sponsor Steve Bothwell who were both unfortunately unable to attend due to illness.  We all wish them both a speedy recovery.
