27 Mar 2024**Brookes / Pearson win the Leeds City Championship Pairs Title**

The Garforth duo became the Leeds City Championship pairs winners in late drama last night at NSC.

First frame set the scene for the evening really, 10mins of nervous tippy tapping resulted in a re-rack. It was then the Garforth pairing of Brookes / Pearson that had the upper hand in this frame, Brookes with a 20 break and then Pearson with a nice crafted 39 break, despite a couple of mini breaks from Godfree, Garforth took the opener (70 - 31)

Frame 2 – Again very scrappy and a lengthy frame of back n forth with mini contributions, mixed with many snookers laid, it looked like the NSC pairing were headed two down, but a fluked Pink brought the match all square (55 - 67)

Frame 3 – Pearson again in the balls early doors and compiled a structured 27 break to gain the advantage in the early stages. Harper with very limited chances so far bridged the gap with a mini effort. Snookers played the part in this frame and with as series of foul and misses from the NSC pairing meant the lead went back to the Garforth duo (69 - 38)

Frame 4 – Was the longest frame of the evening just under an hour, not helped with the balls in awkward positions, but it was a tense affair, certainly nerves causing both pairings to miss golden opportunities. It looked like the match would be over when Brookes potted Green and Brown, but a missed blue enable Godfree to step in and pot the Blue, double the Pink and pot a nervous Black to force the decider (48 - 61)

Frame 5 – Decider it was, again Harper not having much run of the balls. A series of pots for both pairings brought more tension onto the table. A misplaced safety shot by Godfree and it was Brookes who stepped up with a pressured 36 break to pull clear in this deciding frame. Harper / Godfree tried in vain to pull the match back, but inevitably Pearson potted Yellow and Green to secure the pairs title and end this marathon match. (53 - 27)

Thank you to NSC for hosting the final and to Andy Kitson for officiating on the night

26 Mar 2024**Belle Isle retain the Leeds City Team Championship**

Belle Isle WMC successfully defended the ‘Jim Fowler’ trophy last night against a strong resilient Garforth WMC side…

The team of Binns, Cassidy and Hirst put their wits against the Garforth trio of Brookes, Dean and Pearson.

With the big guns of Binns & Brookes to start the proceedings...

Frame 1 – Was pretty one way traffic for the Belle Isle maestro, a series of mini breaks assisted with the helping hand of some astray opening shots from Brookes it was Belle Isle easing into a 1 – 0 lead. (66 – 22)

Frame 2 – Saw the ‘veteran’ Cassidy up against the ever improving Dean, again what looked to be heading for a 2 – 0 lead initially when Cassidy built up a hefty lead, Dean had other ideas and complied an amazing break when reds were scattered across the table, but with just pink and black remaining, Dean faced a tricky pink to force Cassidy requiring the black to tie. Unfortunately for Dean he narrowly missed the pink breaking down on 48 and Cassidy cut the pink and potted a very good black to eventually lead 2 – 0 (70 – 58)

Frame 3 – Was Hirst against Pearson the third minus player from Garforth. This time it was the Garforth player gaining the advantage, neatly crafted 25 in the opening stages enabled Pearson to keep the upper hand in the frame. With nothing notable coming back from Hirst, it was Pearson who wrapped the frame up to reduce the lead to 1 – 2 (32 – 72)

Frame 4 – Was the rematch of Binns & Brookes and pretty much like their first frame, it was pretty much one way traffic, again Binns given the helping hand of some missed opportunities from Brookes to open the lead to 3 – 1 and one more frame required for the title. (64 – 14)

Frame 5 – Cassidy needing to win this to retain the title, again Cassidy quickly out of the blocks, also helped with some very unfortunate run of the balls from Dean. Although a mini comeback was mounted by Dean, it was Cassidy who potted the final balls to ultimately retain the title and keep the trophy firmly fixed at Belle Isle. 4 -1 (60 – 23)

Thank you to NSC for hosting the final and to Andy Kitson for officiating on the night!
