Jack Carney Memorial 2017

This year saw a change from previous seasons, as the Jack Carney Memorial tournament was changed from a ranking round of the Mens calendar, to an open competition held over a single day at The Matchroom, Llanelli.

With the World championships having finished just a couple of days earlier, there were some notable absentees but ultimately this made little difference on the day as several players had notable runs, either showcasing their potential or turning back the clock.

In the first round, 4 matches went the distance. Steve Newbury came back from 0-2 against Shane McDonnell to take the match 3-2. Matthew Roberts and Dylan Emery played out an epic tie, but when Matthew is on he is a tough match for anyone and edged the match. Dale Hughes lost 2-3 to the returning Chris Davies, with Chris just warming up judging by the results that were to follow. Oliver Bridle was just beaten by Chris Collins.

Round two featured a few 3-0 wins (Gavin Lewis, Tyler Rees, Jackson Page and Chris Davies) with probably the longest match of the day being played out between Simon Williams and Phil Williams, on the heated Star table. Phil came out the winner in the end, but at 3-2 Simon certainly made him work for it.

The quarters set up some cracking matches. Ben Jones, Phil Williams and Chris Davies all saw off their opponents 3-1. Jackson Page and Matthew Roberts played out a match that would have been worthy of any final. Both made few mistakes and played excellent match snooker. Jackson took the match 3-2 on the pink.

After 3-0 wins for both, the final featured Phil Williams and Jackson Page. Youth/enthusiasm won out 3-1 over age/experience, with Jackson adding this title to his recent successes
