13 Jan 2019##Dylan Myers and Adam Rennison shine in Leeds Pairs Qualifying##

There were 17 entries for this year's Leeds Pairs competition. At the last minute New Wortley youngster Dylan Myers, who had been let down by his partner, was given a chance to pair up with Harehills Labour's Adam Rennison who had come along to support his club colleagues, and the youthful pairing took full advantage of the opportunity by reaching April's final where they will meet pre-tournament favourites Jonathan Bagley and Dan Womersley.
The favourites saw off Mohammed Ishtiaq and son Isa in the first round, Isa coming into the tournament on the back of a win in the Yorkshire U16 competition the day before. In the quarterfinals, Bagley and Womersley looked to be on their way out as they trailed Ryan Walton and Tommy Doherty by 40 points with only a couple of reds left in the decider. They rode their luck however and a fine pot on the pink followed by a pressure black from Womersley saw them home. They then defeated Stephen Broadhead and Chris Hart 3-0 to reach the final, the key moment in the match was when they won the second frame after needing a snooker on pink and black.
In the other half of the draw Myers and Rennison started with a tight win over Belle Isles Paul Whitaker and Paul Gannon, before overcoming Lewis Harper and Shannon Metcalf 3-2 in the quarters.
In the semi they faced the experienced Gildersome duo of Danny Byrne and Michael Gaughan. In a match played in excellent spirit, they found themselves 2-1 down and 30 behind but undeterred Myers clawed them back into the frame before an excellent 30odd clearance by Rennison saw them level at 2-2. The decider followed the same pattern, the Gildersome duo taking the lead before being pegged back by Myers, with Rennison stepping up to calmly clear the colours to take frame and match. Further proof if any were needed, that the future of snooker in Leeds is in safe hands.
The final takes place at the NSC on Monday 15th April and is sure to be well supported as the young duo attempt to upset the odds one more time.

06 Jan 2019##Young Stanley comes of age as charity comp raises £450 for Anthony Nolan##

NSC junior academy member 12 years old Stanley Moody finally fulfilled his promise as he took the first prize of £120 and in addition earned himself a visit from the handicappers. A regular in these events Stanley had never previously reached the money stages but a number of close fought victories and several black ball wins finally saw him break his duck.
A magnificent entry of 73 players started out at 9:30, and it was Barnbow regular Shannon Metcalf who set the early pace, defeating Joe Moore, Kamran Mann, Danny Dean and Mark Ball on her way to the quarter final, Ball having previously had a fine win over another NSC academy rising star Liam Pullen.
Meanwhile Stan Moody scraped through his first match 2-1 against Adam Rennison before beating Dean Paterson 2-0 and then another 2-1 tussle against Barnbow's James Pears. James's dad Mark also reached the quarter final stage with wins over Oliver Mulcahy, Paul Turner and Dave Boyes. Last quarter finalist in the top half of the draw was U&L Wortley's Danny Gill, overcoming Craig Smith, Phil Buckle and Daniel Boyes along the way.
In the lower half of the draw Beechwood's Billy Savage beat Wayne Ramsden, Chris Freeman and Ryan Walton on his way to a quarter final place against New Headingley's Sam McElhinney who had despatched Scott Raper ,Andrew Houlker and Tommy Doherty. Raper having the days high break of 97 in his 2-1 defeat.
Belle Isle's Steve Hirst continued his fine form in these events by fighting his way past John Howlett, Steve Quigley and Isa Ishtiaq to reach the last quarter final where he faced another Sunday regular Steve Parlour who overcame Jason Hudson,Gary Barton and Mick Jensen.
In the quarter finals Stanley Moody defeated Shannon Metcalf, Danny Gill beat Mark Pears, Sam McElhinney won through against Billy Savage and Steve Parlour defeated Steve Hirst.
In the first semi final Stanley found himself 22 behind on the brown before an excellent clearance followed by a long pot on the re-spotted black saw him 1-0 up against Danny Gill. The second frame was just as close, Stan finally sinking the pink for a 2-0 win. In the other semi Sam McElhinney came from 1-0 down to beat Steve Parlour 2-1 and reach the final.
True to form the first frame of the final was won on the black by Stanley who then won a close second frame to take the title 2-0.
In the plate, Edmund House's Stephen Broadhead beat Graham Bellwood in the semi before winning first prize by beating Barnbow's John Howlett in the final. John having earlier beaten Richard Binns in his semi.

So a massive thank you to all who took part, and to the NSC for use of the facilties and to Peradon for their kind donation to the prize fund. Real winners on the day were the Anthony Nolan Cancer Charity.
