AOH Club bridged a seven-year gap to celebrate a second success in the North-West Veterans’ Snooker Team Pairs KO Cup, thanks to defeating Over-the-Hill 3-1 in the 2016 final, held last Wednesday night at Mailey’s Bar.

In what proved pretty much a one-sided contest, the Hibs decisive decision was anchored by Ray Barrow & Sean Ferry (facile 2-0 victory), with Hugo Duffy & John McDaid playing the 1-1 cameo role. Eddie McColgan & Alan Reed prevailed in a tight finish for the Brandywell side’s consolation win.

Frame Scores – Hugo Duffy & John McDaid (+3) 65, Paddy Doran & Martin Young (+8) 57; Ray Barrow & Sean Ferry (scr) 96, Eddie McColgan & Alan Reed (+3) 36; R. Barrow & S. Ferry 81, P. Doran & M. Young 34; H. Duffy & J. McDaid 61, E. McColgan & A. Reed 67; Breaks – Sean Ferry compiled a tidy 29 sequence.

Referees were Mickey Doherty and Dan Shiels... The NWVSL committee convey kind thanks to Mailey’s Bar for hosting the final.
