Stephen Wright won the Wrest Park August AC Advanced tournament

[<<] [>>] by John Bevington at Wrest Park
10th August (AC)

It was a strong field: of the 11 entries seven were minus players, with visitors from as far apart as Beverley, Chester and Taunton Deane. The problem of having an odd number was resolved as Nick Evans was unavoidably detained on Saturday, which began with Bryan Harral arriving early to finish the mowing.

At the end of the first day Nick Steiner, manager Rod Ashwell and Stephen Wright were level on three wins, Nick completing a triple peel against Richard Smith, with Annabel McDiarmid and David Marsh on two wins each. On Sunday Annabel halted Stephen's run, winning +24TP, and Rod lost to Nick, but the prospect of a four-way tie was eliminated when Stephen won his next two games, the last against Nick. The other Nick (Evans) arrived on Sunday and lost his first game by the narrowest of margins to Cliff Jones, but made up for it with a win against Derek Knight.
