Dave Nick beat James Hopgood to win the Southport Advanced Weekend

[<<] [>>] by James Hawkins
14/15 April 2012 (AC)

The final wasn't short of interactivity - Hopgood TPOed Nick in the first and reduced the game to two balls, before a late fightback. The two following games were much more democratic (i.e. scrappy) than the hoop scores might indicate.

Meanwhile, Bury's Matt Holmes beat Alain Giraud to win the final of the condolence event.
