CONGRATULATIONS TO BIDEFORD! – BILBY CUP WINNERS 2011

Bideford ended a wait of over 25 years to bring snookers premier team prize back to Torridgeside at Tivertons conservative club on Saturday night with a magnificent 4-2 victory over Exeter.

Exeters ex England international put Exeter 1-0 up with a polished performance against Kevin Fishleigh. This was countered by a dominant display by Lee Halling who was authorative against seasoned county player David Howell from Exeter.
18 year old Jake Frank in his first season of county competition for Bideford played confidently aided by a break of 44 defeated ex pro and multi county champion Andy Radford in the pivotal third frame before David Gayton defeated county captain Gareth Clark to take Bideford 3-1 ahead.

Seasoned campaigner Peter Edworthy gave Exeter hope with a typical dogged performance against Bideford’s former county champion Shez Tetley to close the gap to 3-2, before Bideford’s Gary Tubbs destroyed Exeter’s Jamie Denham with a dominant display to bring the trophy back to the Little white town.

Bideford’s captain Nick Kenny said ” it’s an absolute honour to play with such a talented team who play for each other whether win or loose, and that team spirit has held us above the other teams in this competition this year. We in north Devon often get overlooked, but we have proved that as the interest in our sport is growing over the past 18 months we on a county level are up there with the best in the region”.

Bideford have reached the Bilby cup final for the first time in 11 years.

They overcame a spirited Torbay C team 4-1 at the liberal club on Saturday night.

Jake Franks debut resulted in a 1-0 lead beating Ben Francis. Kevin fishleighs experience came to the fore against Alex Mucklow in the second frame. Torbays frame came from Steve Beers black ball win over previously undefeated Lee Halling.

David Gayton provided the highlight of the evening with a stunning 61 clearance to win on the black against Lee McArthur jnr.

Shez Tetley then potted the Torridgesiders into an unassailable 4-1 lead and a place in the final against Exeter A on march 17th.

    Sir,

    I need a little help!

    I am looking for a short snooker cue which is manageable by my 6 yr. old grand son. We have a 1900 quarter size table which we like playing on but a full size cue seems too heavy and cumbersome for him.

    Where can I find a new or second hand cue for him?

      Hi Ian, thanks for the e-mail. I think I might well be able to help you with this request. Though our telescopic cues are useful for young players your 6 year old grandson would be a little young for those cues just yet so maybe in the future. A better alternative might be a model not on our website yet but it is a good little cue from Riley which is designed as a `My first cue` model. I will check the length out and send you more details tomorrow but it will only be about £15. There are also cheaper short Ramin cues which might also be suitable and are cheaper. If you are local you could come over to our showroom and see for yourself (by appointment), or you can also ring me to discuss in more detail if you would like.
