Undercliffe Cricket Clubs duo Peter Hamilton and Josh Walker held off a brave fight from the Laisterdykes wmc’s Bernard Mcloughlin and Martin Glen to win the Dudley Hill games league pairs title 2013.
Laisterdyke duo Martin and Bernard was playing in their second consecutive pairs final losing narrowly last season to Little Horton cyc club’s G Smyth & A Maltby, They hoped that this season would be their chance to revive themselves by correcting last seasons hiccup.
In the first frame of the 2013 final ucc youngster Josh showing what great potential he has by setting off with a solid 40+ break to seal the first frame of the evening for the ucc pair.
Second frame started a bit slower and after some solid safety from the 2013 Dudley hill singles champion Peter Hamilton (pictured) forced an error from the Laisterdyke pair to let the youngster back in to compile another sizable visit this time a 30+ break to hold a commanding lead in the second frame to which they won eventually.
But the Laisterdyke pair was not to give in that easily and gave a valiant effort to contain the ucc pair by playing some great snooker throughout the third frame trying their best to stop the ucc pairs run, but the ucc boys held it together and completed a 3 v 0 win and with it the 2013 Dudley Hill pairs title.
Congratulations to Undercliffe pair Joshua and Peter and commiserations to Laisterdykes Bernard and Martin a valiant effort once again and certainly a pair to look out for in future events.
