Carsons pocket doubles titles
It proved to be a family affair in the final of the Bridgnorth League Ray Halford Doubles Cup.
Cousins Nick and Andy Carson, who represent Broseley, lifted the silverware after beating St
John’s duo Rob Powell and Tim Steele in a match that took over two hours to complete the two frames.
There was some excellent safety play, but the majority of slim opportunities fell to the Carsons.
They secured the first frame 41-8, but the second was much closer.
In the end, Andy secured the trophy when he took the final yellow, green, brown and blue.
This was the third time a family partnership had won the competition. On the two previous occasions it had been a ‘father-son’ act.
Nick is chasing more glory having reached the final of the Graham Cooper Doubles Cup with Mick Brezwyn.
They will face James Allington and Marti Lippitt in another Broseley versus St. John’s showdown involving four of the league’s top players.
