Peter Gilchrist with Ron Allen

Champion: Peter Gilchrist

Runner Up: Martin Goodwill

Peter Gilchrist’s journey from Sinagpore was worthwhile as he lifted the Welsh Open in Cwmbran. He continued his fine vein of form by beating Martin Goodwill 863 – 190, including breaks of 200 and 257. In the quarter final he hit the high break of the competition of 499.

We were very grateful to have excellent hosts at Redz Snooker Club in Cwmbran who did a wonderful job hosting their first WBL event and ensuring all the tables were up to the required standard. They even provided a Hog Roast for lunch on the Saturday. Phoenix Hire and Sales kindly donated some air con units for the club, this was greatly received by the players in what was a very hot weekend.

We thank our other sponsors, Palace Windows, Gary Hitchens Paving and Landscaping, Rosetta Sports and also to the WBSA for their support of the event. Thanks also to our Tournament Controller Ronnie Allen and to Alex Donne for his assistance in organising and promoting the event.
