The semi-finals were held at Great Horton Conservative Club last Saturday and Cooper (Undercliffe Cricket Club) defeated Mark Slater (Clayton Liberals) 4-1 in a repeat scoreline of last season’s final.

Bradford No 2 back in county snooker’s top flight

Captain Hanif Rafiq's side secures Division 2 title and promotion.

Captain Hanif Rafiq’s side secures Division 2 Title and promotion to top flight Division

BRADFORD No 2 came away from their Yorkshire Inter-District League match at Selby with a 3-3 draw, which was not only enough to secure the visitors promotion back to the top-flight but also give them the title.

The city second string team needed just one point to guarantee promotion, but two points would confirm them as champions, and this was achieved in the first match as a solid Peter Hamilton display gave him a 74-38, 70-30 victory against Harry Hall.

Boover Singh couldn’t get into his stride and went down 63-27 and 58-28 to J Barker, while captain Hanif Rafiq made a 59 clearance in winning 81-21, but opponent Darren Hawkins had the final say of a great season for Bradford with a 64-42 victory.

Bradford No 2, who are more than capable of challenging at the top end of the table, will be hoping for better fortune than the last time they were among the elite, and will be seeking a good early start.

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.
