THE draws for the Bradford Snooker Championships were made last week at the final of the South Bradford League snooker singles, and champion Jason Murgatroyd assisted with the draw.
Nine-time winner and holder Wayne Cooper (Undercliffe Cricket Club) was paired against Clayton Liberals’ Mark Slater in a repeat of last season’s final, which Cooper won 4-1.
In the other semi-final, brothers Gareth (Eccleshill Vic Cons) and Anthony (Harold Club) Green will face each other, with Gareth aiming to win his fifth title while Anthony is seeking his first, having been runner-up two years ago. These matches will both be played on Saturday, April 23 (7.45pm) at Great Horton Conservative Club.
In the pairs, the Green brothers, who were defending champions, were edged out 3-2 in their quarter-final by Undercliffe Cricket Club duo Josh Walker and Russell Morgan, who now face clubmates Cooper and Kevin Firth. Semi-finalists last season, John and Chris Wellham (Windhill Cons) aim to go at least one better when they face Eccleshill Vic Cons’ Lewis Walsh and Howard Mawson.
Dates for these matches have yet to be finalised.
