Wisbech Singles Pool League held their finals and presentation night at The Venue last weekend and it was Monday league winner Scott Chambers and Tuesday league winner Shane Balding who contested the final.

There was nothing between them as they shared the first few frames and at 4-4 it looked like anybody’s game. Balding then upped his game by clearing from the break to lead 5-4 and it was not Chambers’ night as he broke the next frame without potting.

Balding stepped in to clear then broke and cleared the last frame to run out a 7-4 winner and take the title of singles league champion for the second successive season along with a £600 first prize.

Three times world champion Andy Lucas presented trophies to Shane Balding, champion, and Tuesday League winner, Scott Chambers, runner-up, and Monday League winner, Chris Back, Monday league runner-up, Alan Mason, Tuesday league runner-up, Sammy Dadashev, Finals day lower section winner, and Players’ Player of the season, and Graham Wood (lower section runner-up).
