The first of the ADPL Competition Finals days took place on 3rd December 2011 at Sh88ters, with Phillip Craig and Martin McIntosh out to defend the title they won the previous season. With the live stream being tested out on one of the tables for the first time every in the ADPL there was plenty of last minute touches being done to appearances and a clamber was on for players to showcase their talents to the World Wide Web!

First up on the 'TV' table in the last 32 saw Phil Craig Snr and Lindsay Ahern edge out Jeff Burnett and Kevin Daglish 3-2. Shock of the last 32 saw Steve Wilson and last minute substitute James 'Hendo/Earl' Henderson beating one of the pre tournament favourites Mike 'Village' Kelly and Darren Matthew. A result I am sure the Mikey and Dazza wont be allowed to forget for a while from Hendo. Also through to the last 16 with comfortable victories were Simon Mitchell and Richard Cradduck, Kev Coutts and Stevie Annal and defending Champions Phillip Craig and Martin McIntosh.

Tie of the last 16 saw Andy Eagar...

and Ryan Edmondson take on Lindsay Ahern and Phil Craig Snr, a tense match the swung back and forth saw Eager and Edmonston through 4-3. Also through to the Quarter Finals were Craig and McIntosh, Willie Guyan and John Falconer, Colin Brown and Richard Bruce, Craig Anderson and Mikey Annal, Simon Mitchell and Richard Craddock, Steve Wilson and Hendo continued their march, and Alex Rayne and Deryck Scott had a good win against Kev Coutts and Stevie Annal 4-2.

Onto the Quarter Finals and the defending champions Phillip Craig and Martin McIntosh defeated Andy Eager and Ryan Edmondson 4-1, John Falconer and Willie Guyan whitewashed Alex Rayne and Deryck Scott, Simon Mitchell and Richard Craddock ended Hendo and Steve Wilson's run 4-0 and Craig Anderson and Mikey Annal pulled off an upset defeated one of one the pre-tournament favourites to take the title Colin Brown and Richard Bruce 4-2 with some quality pool from the Byron lads.

The semi finals saw Craig Anderson and Mikey Annal taking on Mitchell and Craddock on the TV table. Being exposed to the wider audience on the internet obviously knocked the Byron lads out their stride and Mitchell and Cradduck won comfortable 5-0 seeing them reach the final impressively without losing a frame. The other semi final was much closer and could have went either way. John Falconer and Willie Guyan in the end defeated Phillip Craig and Martin McIntosh 5-4 to end the regaining champs bid to retain their title.

The Finals saw a clash of Rileys C team mates Simon Mitchell and Richard Craddock against John Falconer and Willie Guyan. John Falconer and Willie Guyan won the earlier tactical battles gaiing a lead of 4-2 in some trappy frames. However the match was to turn on its head when John Falconer tried to play the cue ball off the cushion at pace to knock in a plant but knocked the 8 ball in to the middle pocket instead. Simon Mitchell and Richard Craddock potted their way to a great clearance in the 8th frame to level the match. Simon Mitchell and Richard Craddock then gained a 5-4 lead and in the 10th frame coming down to the last few balls, Willie Guyan knocked in a long pot only to see the cue ball flick off their opponents ball and go down the pocket with the black virtually hanging over a corner pocket. Simple clearance with 2 shots to the eventual winners Mitchell and Craddock by 6 frames to 4.

Congratulation to Simon Mitchell and Richard Craddock on winning the 2011-2012 Scotch Doubles Event performing brilliantly through the day to take the title.
