Archives: Carlsberg Scottish Singles 2006
 Posted on Monday, May 29 2006 @ 16:30:05 BSTby adpladmin
National Pool News Mike writes Congratulations to the ADPLs very own Darren Matthew on winning the SEPF Scottish Singles for 2006. This makes Daz the only player to have won the event twice.

The Scottish Eightball Pool Federation held their annual Singles Championships over 6th & 7th May. The Men?s event had a record field of 96 players which consisted of 32 seeded players and 64 qualifiers. The Men?s event was sponsored for the first time by Carlsberg and Styx Pool Hall, Kirkcaldy.
The first round saw all of the 64 qualifiers drawn to play each other where the winner of each match would progress to meet a seeded player in the last 64...

With a number of unknown quantities in the qualifiers it was not sure if there were any matches that stood out but there were a couple of ties which did stand out through the seeded players knowing the qualifiers. John King (Cowdenbeath), recently in the Interleague runners up team, was drawn against previous winner Andy Gerrie (Fraserburgh) and John Falconer (Aberdeen) against Davie Dewar (Rosyth) was the other match. On this occasion the players from Fife came out on top with 8-4 & 8-6 wins respectively. Other notable results from the first round saw Pat mcCarron, Martin McIntosh & Phil Craig Jnr progress in their first Senior Scottish Singles Championships since their step up from the Junior ranks.
The last 64 saw the seeded players enter the fray. There were chances of a few seeded players going out in this round as the qualifiers had now all been seen play. The seeded players that fell at their first hurdle were , Ray McKessick (Stonehaven), Murray May (Brechin), Dave McPike (Arbroath), Mark Gravener (Aberdeen), Sandy Anderson (Peterhead), Gary Wallace 9Kinglassie), Andy Pirie (Aberdeen), Neil MacDonald (Stonehaven), Paul Robertson (Stonehaven), Scott Kennedy 9Kirkcaldy) &Paul Simpson (Ellon). Other notable victories in this round went to Chris Sweeney (Cowdenbeath) who defeated Barry Calder (Fraserburgh) 8-7, Chris Corcoran (Kirkcaldy) who beat Kev Coutts (Aberdeen) 8-6 Alan Scott (Kirkcaldy) who beat Jeff Burnett (Aberdeen) in a tense final frame decider 8-7 and Stuart Archibald (Cowdenbeath) who was also pushed all the way by Shaun Corcoran (Kirkcaldy).
The last 32 saw some unfamiliar names for the first time in SEPF events and some were to progress even further. No.1 seed, Steve Munro (Salford) was showing why he is ranked No.5 by the World Eightball Pool Federation as he he went through 8-3 against Stuart Adamson (Dunfermline)Simon Mitchell (Stonehaven) wasted very little time in dispatching Keith McLeod 8-1, Chris Sweeney was drawn against local team mate John King. Chris came out on top 8-5, John McArthur (Dunfermline) was the first seed to fall as he crashed out 8-5 to Alan Higgins (Bowhill), Chris Corcoran (Kirkcaldy) won through in a tight match against Davy Stuart (Rosyth) 8-6, Jim Anderson (Peterhead held the family bragging rights as he won through 8-0 against brothe Allan Anderson. Ivan Thompson (Cowdenbeath) defeated Steve Annal 9Aberdeen in another tight match 8-6, Mike Clark (Inverurie) won through comfortably against no.4 seed Ian Daniel (Ellon) 8-3. Phil Craig Snr (Aberdeen) was involved in a tussle with Pat McCarron (Aberdeen) and won the deciding frame to progress. Mark Oaten (Aberdeen) won through against Willie Bruce (Montrose) 8-2, Raymond Mowat (Fraserburgh) won another tight match 8-7 against Alex Stephen (Fraserburgh). Iain Souter 9Montrose) won through after a battle with Martin McIntosh (Aberdeen) 8-6, Mike Keddie (Glenrothes) won through 8-3 against Martin Campbell (Aberdeen), Gary Stewart (Montrose) appeared to be the surprise package as he won his 3rd match, this time against Mark McBride (Fraserburgh), Alan Scott (Kirkcaldy) won through against Stuart Archibald (Dalgety Bay) 8-5 and Darren Matthew 9Aberdeen) completed the last 16 with victory against Shaun Wishart (Kirkcaldy).
In the Last 16, Simon Mitchell was holding his own against Steve Munro until Steve won a couple of frames in a row and book his place in the quarters with an 8-7 win. Chris Sweeney was next through to the quarters with a close win over Alan Higgins 8-6. Ivan Thompson joined them with a close 8-6 victory over Mike Clark to complete the top half of the draw. Phil Craig Snr?s run came to an end at the hands of Mark Oaten with Mark running out an 8-4 winner. Raymond Mowat defeated Iain Soutar 8-6 to progress. Mike Keddie?s run also came to an end at the hands of Gary Stewart with Gary winning 8-4. Darren Matthew wasted no time in winning through 8-1 against Alan Scott.
The quarter final line up was now known. Steve Munro and Chris Sweeney shared the first 6 frames before Steve opened up a small gap which Chris failed to close as Steve won through to the semis 8-5. Local favourites Ivan Thompson & Chris Corcoran were fighting to see who would meet Steve Munro in the semis and on this day Ivan proved to be the better player as he won through a tight match 8-6. Mark Oaten?s run also came to an end as Raymond Mowat beat him 8-5. Darren Matthew was the last player into the semis as his good form continued as he won through 8-1 against the final qualifier, Gary Stewart.
Nobody could argue that the best 4 players over the weekend were left in the semi finals as the remaining players had been the men on form. Steve Munro, World no.5 against Ivan Thompson, SEPF no.1 was the first semi final. Steve got off to flyer as he raced into a 4-0 lead before Ivan could get going. The 4 frame lead proved to be enough for Steve as the next 8 frames were shared with Steve winning through 8-4. The second semi final saw Scotland International and 2 times SEPF Tour no.1 Raymond Mowat against SEPF Tour 2005 no.1 and former winner Darren Matthew. Raymond won the first 2 frames to take a narrow lead but Darrens form was tremendous as won the next 5 frames. Raymond had a slight revival but Darren won through to the final with an 8-4 victory.
The final saw the top 2 seeds play in what some have described as the best final they have ever seen. The first 8 frames were all 8 ball finishes as the players shared them. Steve then won the next 3 frames to be 1 frame from victory. Darren was resilient in his play though and battled through the next 3 frames to level the score at 7-7 and took the match and the championship to the very last frame. Steve was to break and the balls opened up perfectly for what looked a good opportunity to run out the balls. Everything was going to plan until Steve under-hit a straight forward screw shot to fall just short of perfect position on the black. This was enough for him to miss the black and leave Darren with all of his balls in the middle of the table. Darren held his nerve to pot all of his balls and finish perfectly on the black. He sunk the black to become the first player to win the SEPF Scottish Singles for a second time.
The delighted crowd of around 50 people who stayed to watch the final were congratulating both players for a magnificent final which one of them unfortunately had to lose.
