We would like to congratulate one of our younger academy members on their recent success at The Sutton Academy Easter Tournament No 1.
There were 25 players in the Red Ball event including Will Gee from our Academy and Joseph Richards, one of our foundation players. Both boys played some great matches and won through their qualifying boxes to reach the main draw. Will won all of his matches convincingly except for his match against Tom Dunlop where they had a real battle with Will coming out on top 11-9. Joseph only lost one match to finish equal top in his box with the winner being decided by game difference.
In the Main draw both lads had tough first matches with Joseph just losing to Ediz Yesilada 7-10 whilst Will beat Maxwell Pettifor 10-7. Again their second matches proved close affairs with Will winning through to meet Ediz Yesilada in the final and Joseph just losing to the Consolation winner Tom Dunlop.
The final proved to be an exciting match with both Will and Ediz working hard to tactically outwit their opponent. After some great points Will took the title 10-7 to win his first Grade 3 event.
