POTTING PALS FACE-OFF TO BECOME SENIORS CHAMPION
There will be a new name on the trophy when Steve Chambers and Shaun Eaton-Lees contest the WEPF Seniors’ World 8-ball Pool title on Friday.
The English rivals are last men standing in an event characterised by upsets and drama.
And both are looking to add the ultimate seniors crown to their collection in the best of 15 frames final shootout.
Chambers, a winner for the European version in 2016, defeated Ireland’s Martin Keenan 7-2 in the semi-finals.
Along the way to the final he knocked out defending champion, Keith Brewer, 6-1 in the last 16.
In the last eight the Leicestershire cueman defeated Mick Ferguson 7-5, the latter responsible for the demise of Australia’s 2015 winner, Steve Gray.
Walsall based Eaton-Lees, National champion in 2015, knocked out India’s Surinder Singh 7-3 in the second semi-final. Along the way, he defeated Australian stalwart, Mick Delahunty, in the last 16 and followed up with a 7-1 win against South Africa’s Danie Swart.
Singh reached the last four with a 7-2 success against Australia’s reigning World Masters champion, Wayne Stubbs.
