Final will be battle of the Andys

Semi-finals last week and Andy Sorrell really stamped his authority on the tournament. He comfortably despatched Nick Bailie, who himself was impressive in earlier rounds. Andy’s 4-0 victory must now install him as favourite to lift the trophy after successive 4-0 wins in quarters and semis.

The other match was a very long, drawn out affair with reigning champion Andy Brough somehow overcoming a gallant and unfortunate Dave Prescott. Neither player showed any kind of form and a close on three-hour slog resulted in a 4-2 victory for Brough. He will need to improve markedly if he is to retain his crown in next weeks showpiece final.

Many thanks once again for venue Rileys Sportsbar in Bank Street and the tournament sponsors Rugby Double Glazing Limited.
