Peers Sponsor North West Billiards

Wed 20th Dec 2017

Harry Peers Steelwork are thrilled to announce their support of this year's North West Billiards tournaments. Design Manager Chris Achilles who has been appointed Merseyside Billiards Secretary, is delighted with the sponsorship from Peers and looks forward to an exciting season.

First up, The Merseyside Billiards Championship, the first of three sponsored competitions took place on Sunday 17th December in Widnes and attracted 22 of the region's top players including several international players. The competition was organised by Chris who acted as Tournament Director on the day as well as competing himself.

After some closely fought matches, the eventual winner on the day and receiving 200 was the current world ranked number 12, Rob Marshall from Preston who defeated Lancaster based England International Eddie Fielding or "Fast Eddie" as he is affectionately known. Eddie received 100 and much praise for rolling back the years as his play on the day was of a high quality.

The Semi Finalists were Geoff Brassington from Chester & Marty Sedgewick from St. Helens who both received 50. The high break prize was also won by Geoff with a well-constructed 85.

The day was an overwhelming success for all involved and the hope that sponsorship from Peers would help raise the profile of billiards in the North West area is already coming to fruition.

Peers sponsorship elevates and promotes the competitions to a wider audience which ultimately attracts top referees and the impressive prize money now on offer encourages more local talented players to compete.

The two remaining sponsored competitions are the North West Championship on 25th March and the Merseyside Handicap Competition on the 15th April.
