Matt Morgan, Scott Bell, Phil O'Kane, Rob Molinari, Glenn Winter & Ben Trowell


Victoria Snooker Centre, Tunbridge Wells

Winners: Scott Bell, Phil O'Kane & Matt Morgan

Runners-up: Ben Trowell, Rob Molinari & Glenn Winter


We had 6 teams enter the event at Victoria Club so we split into two groups of 3 and played a Round Robin. Team Mables, which was Keith Matthews, Darren Martin and Stephen Hartley, dominated group 2 winning both matches 5-1 against The Good, The Bad and The Ugly which in no particular order was Matt Simpson, Steve Wagon and Danny Bush and against Sevenoaks which was Dan Brazier, Neil Jefferis and last-minute substitution and star man Dan Colbran. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly then beat Sevenoaks 5-1 to earn a semi-final spot.


In Group 1, both Mables Reserves (Ben Trowell, Rob Molinari, Glenn Winter) and Phil'in Good (Phil O'Kane Scott Bell & Matt Morgan) beat Dad's Army (Adam Holmes, Tim Cosens, Paul Shircore) and got a 3-3 draw when they played each other. Some impressive scoring in this group with a 94 break from Phil and a quality 121 clearance from Scott.


Phil'in Good beat The Good, The Bad and The Ugly 4-1 in their semi-final. In the other semi the Mables teams played each other and it finished 3-3 so a deciding frame had to be played by nominated players Ben Trowell and Stephen Hartley. It was a tense frame but Ben was always slightly ahead and managed to hold onto that lead and win setting up a final between Mables Reserves and Phil'in Good.


They had already played in the group stage and couldn't be split but this time Scott, Phil and Matt were too strong for the Mables Reserves and came out 5-1 winners taking the £105 winner's prize. Ben, Rob and Glenn got £45 for their efforts.

Adam Holmes, Tim Cosens, Keith Matthews & Amrik Cheema


Welling Snooker Club

Winners: Keith Matthews & Amrik Cheema

Runners-up: Tim Cosens & Adam Holmes


The pairs competition at Welling Snooker Club was very well supported with 19 pairs entering. We decided to run it as a knockout with each match played over best of 5 frames with a re-spotted black to decide the match instead of a 5th frame if required.


Surprisingly when the draw looked very even and there were lots of close matches only two matches all day went to a decider. Rob Molinari and Ben Trowell won one of those in a great match against James Addison-May and Matt Simpson but they then lost in the semi-final to Tim Cosens and Adam Holmes who themselves had come off the back of a marathon match against Danny Bush and Steve Wagon.

In the other half of the draw Harriet Haynes and Sean Halligan had won both of their matches 3-0 to get through to the semi-final where they met Keith Matthews and Amrik Cheema who had also not dropped a frame. Another tight match which went to a decider and it was Keith and Amrik who came through.

The final was a very tense affair with neither pair able to dominate. Tim and Adam won the first frame but Keith and Amrik fought back taking the next two frames and then a nervy 4th frame to win the match 3-1. Tim and Adam took home £100 and Keith and Amrik, who has now followed up his victory in the Amateur last month with half of the Pairs prize, took home £200.

Matt Simpson & Amrik Cheema


Frames Snooker Club, Margate

Winner: Amrik Cheema

Runner-up: Matt Simpson


We had 46 entries in the Kent Amateur and whilst there were a few notable names missing we were happy with the turnout after so many months off. We had also implemented a cutoff date for the competition as well so that enabled us to get the draw done and let everyone know their start time before the day.


The draw worked out to be quite top heavy with several former winners in upper half. One of those former winners, Sean Halligan made a good start and went on to reach the third round before losing to Steve Crowley. Past Champion, Steve beat the current cup holder, Lee Martin before eventually losing to Amrik Cheema. Great to see some old players such as Darren Martin and Andy Sage coming out of the woodwork to dust off their cues.


Neil Jefferis had a remarkable run of results as he beat tournament contenders, Matt Howard and Stuart Wood but eventually ran out of steam Amrik Cheema in the Semis. 


In the bottom half, Tim Cosens got the better of a few players including Gary Livermore. Meanwhile Scott Bell showed his talent to beat Simon Routledge and Harry Compton. However despite knocking in the highest break of the tournament, a brilliant 99, he succumbed to the tenacity of Matt Simpson. Matt went on to beat Tim to advance to the Final against Amrik.


The final started as a close affair but Amrik potted a few good balls to nick the first. He then knocked in a 44 to secure the second frame. Matt showed some of the determination that got him to his first ever Kent final to win the third frame but it was to no avail as Amrik showed his experience to take the fourth frame and seal the victory.


This was the third time Amrik has won the Kent Amateur which came 25 years after his last victory in 1996 and 32 years ago when he won his first in 1989. As the oldest winner since Harry Wilson in 1985, Amrik is testament to the fact that you can still enjoy and compete at the highest level through in to your senior years.

Lee Martin & Steve Wagon


Winner: Lee Martin

Runner-up: Steve Wagon

18 players took part in the plate competition for first game losers. Gary Brown and Simon Hughes did well to advance to the semi finals but they came up against seasoned campaigners Steve Wagon and Lee Martin who both saw off their opponents two nil. The final was closely contested but Lee came out the victor 2-1 taking forty quid for the win whilst Steve took home £20 for his efforts.


All in all a great day and all done before midnight so that was great. If you want to take part in the Kent County Cup at Jordan’s on Sunday 13 March then you will really need to get your entry in before the deadline or it reaches capacity. 

Andy Phillips & Neil Jefferis


Victoria Snooker Centre, Tunbridge Wells

Winner: Andy Phillips

Runner-up: Neil Jefferis


We had 8 entries for the Billiards so we split into two groups of four and played a Round Robin, each game played over 45 minutes. After two matches each in Group 1 each player had won one and lost one so the final round would decide the semi-final spots. They were filled by Andy Phillips who beat Stephen Hills and Andy Soper who beat Steve Wagon.

Group 2 saw Neil Jefferis win all three matches and Roger Knowles win two so they took the other semi-final spots.

The semi-final scores were Neil 167, Andy Soper 108 and Andy Phillips 200, Roger 68 so the final was to be a rematch of the 2019 final. The final scores were Andy 128, Neil 116 in a closely fought game so Andy Phillips is champion again. Congratulations Andy, winning the title for the 9th time.

Andy Soper & Roger Knowles

Whilst the final was being contested, Andy Soper beat Roger Knowles in a third place playoff place. Andy won by 170 points to 114.

KENT SNOOKER UNDER 21s - 3.10.21

Victoria Snooker Centre, Tunbridge Wells

Competition Not Held


We only one entry for the Under 21s which was 10 year old Bertie Gill so unfortunately we were unable to run the event.

Raj Puri & Adrian Mitchell


Victoria Snooker Centre, Tunbridge Wells

Winner: Raj Puri
Runner-up: Adrian Mitchell


We had 11 entries for the Veterans tournament at Victoria Club in Tunbridge Wells. As young Bertie Gill was unable to play in the Under 21s we gave him the opportunity to play in the Veterans competition. This meant we could split them all the players into two groups of six for a round-robin tournament.

Each match in the group stage was just one frame with the top two in each group, based on frames won, going through to the semi-finals. Adrian Mitchell won group 1 winning 4 of his 5 frames. Raj Puri also won 4 of his 5 but had lost his frame against Adrian so he was group runner-up.

Group 2 finished unbelievably with 5 players all winning 3 frames and as we hadn't been recording the frame scores the only way to split them was to have a knockout tournament between the 5, again just one frame matches. Clive Underhill won his first frame but then lost to Doug Vingoe. Mark Britton beat Tony Curtis so the group was finally decided with Mark going through to play Raj and Doug playing Adrian in the semi-finals.

Raj and Adrian both won 2-0 to setup a rematch in the final and this time it was Raj who prevailed winning 2-0 and the £60 first prize. Congratulations Raj on successfully defending the title after holding on to it for the extra year during the pandemic.
