NW Billiards Championship

Mon 26th Mar 2018

This weekend saw the best billiards players from the region descend on Millbrow Snooker Club in Widnes to contest the highly sort after North West Billiards Championship sponsored by Peers Steelwork.

With such well-known names as John Spencer and Peter Gilchrist displayed on the trophy, this is one competition every serious billiards player dreams of conquering.

After 3 hours of hard fought group matches the final 8 players were revealed and the competition went to a straight knockout stage with group winners seeded.

The 8 qualifiers were Matty Jackson (Widnes), Eddie Fielding (Lancashire), Eddie Duggan & Steve Bradshaw (Wirral), current world ranked No 4 Rob Marshall (Preston), Sam Walker (Rochdale) & John Hughes & Peers very own Design Manager Chris Achilles (Runcorn).

Chris progressed to the semi-final after a hard fought match against England International Eddie Duggan, who secured a good win over the talented Matty Jackson with breaks of 70, 56 & 59. Rob Marshall won his quarter final match with two century breaks against Sam Walker and a closing 98 break against John Hughes in the semi-final.

In the final Rob Marshall showed his class and took control with an early 68 break swiftly followed by a 55, 103 & 55 to freeze Chris out and take the title for the first time and complete the double after winning the Merseyside title back in December.

With 4 century breaks and 24 breaks over 50, the competition was played to a high level and Rob Marshall took the top break prize with an excellent 124.

Next up is the final competition of the season, the Merseyside Billiards Handicap to be played in April.
