Harrison takes tour 2

April 3, 2018 in Competitions by Tour Admin

2018 UKPT Event 2 - Daventry

The first tour of the season saw Stoke’s Lee Kendall taking the title in emphatic fashion against Wigan’s David Stock. Both players would have been looking to capitalise on their early success and strengthen their placing at the top of the table. It was a contrasting tour for the two in this respect as Kendall continued his fine form with a great showing, making the semi finals before losing out to England teammate Ben Flack, whom he defeated in the last 32 of the first tour. Stock on the otherhand found himself in a tough first round match against England stalwart Jack Pople, a tough match for any player on the tour, who defeated him 7-2.

The first tour saw Phil Harrison narrowly losing out to Lee Kendall in the semi-final. For most people this would be a good showing but for Harrison, a regular tour winner, it was clearly a case of must try harder, and try he did! He produced not only a fantastic display of pool ability but also of bottle, overcoming two deciding frames, one in the quarters and the other in the final, with a clearance off his opponent’s break.

Harrison’s route to the final was by no means an easy one. A Premier League player, Darrell Whitworth, a high standard newcomer to the tour, Marvin Nestor, and a previous World finalist who is considered amongst the England team's best had to be overcome before meeting current European Champion Ben Flack in the final, a tough match for anyone.

Flack’s route to the final was certainly no easier; 3 Premier League players had to be overcome in his run up including habitual tour winner Tom Cousins and Tour 1 champion Lee Kendall. A number of close matches ensued, and Flack showed true grit and bottle to overcome each opponent with his relentless focus proving key to victory.

The final was a high standard affair as would be expected between two greats of the game and there was never more than a couple of frames to separate the two. In the end it was Harrison who would take it with a pin point clearance in the decider. This now leaves Kendall and Harrison tied for first place in the rankings as both have won a tour and made the semis, leaving each on 26 points.

UK POOL TOUR 2 - DAVENTRY COURT HOTEL

30th March - 1st April

The Festival of Pool is almost upon us and it's sure to be a fantastic weekend of pool! After Lee Kendall's fantastic effort at tour 1, can he emulate Tom Cousins from the 2017 season and win back to back titles? The England Captain will no doubt be giving it his all but there'll certainly be a host of players who'd like to stop him in his tracks.

Tour 1 finalist David Stock will also be looking to continue his great form and will have to overcome England player Jack Pople in the first round if he wants to add to his impressive points tally from the first event. Another couple of big first round ties are England's Robert Wharne vs Dom Cooney, Wharne had a fantastic 2017 taking a Challenge event and making the final of tours 4 and 5, and Premier League player Darrell Whitworth vs Max Nosko, which is sure to be a great standard.

The event starts on Friday 30th March at the Daventry Court Hotel and entry is free for those who would like to come along to spectate. Those who can't make it can catch the stream from 9am Saturday, the link will be available on this site and our Facebook page in due course.
