Bronze Waistcoat Tour – Event 1

(Redruth Royal British Legion)



November 2006
Snooker coaching at Redruth is thriving with a large attendance every week of very young and inexperienced players and due to this there is a shortage of suitable players for the Bronze Waistcoat events.

The league table finished with James Freeman as the event winner (150 pts) unbeaten with three wins out of three, Jake Stewart in second place (130 pts) two wins out of three. New player Jamie Edwards third (110 pts) and Alexander Wills fourth (100 pts), unfortunately losing all his games probably and obviously due to being unwell but still insisting on entering the event.

10th December 2006
The Redruth RBL December Bronze Waistcoat event was held on Sunday 10th December with five players entering the round robin event. Expectations were high, especially for young Jake Stewart, who deserves a mention for compiling a fine 63 break in the local league the previous Tuesday. However, his confidence was soon to be dented as he lost convincingly by 64-23 to the eventual event winner Alexander Wills (150 pts), this was Alexander’s 1st overall win and he looks promising for many more. 2nd place went to James Freeman with (130 pts) and 3rd place went to Jake Stewart (110 pts), Jake had a fine 25 total clearance to win his frame against Freeman. 4th place Jamie Edwards (100 pts) and 5th place new player Aiden Johns (90 pts), in Aiden’s first ever event he performed exceptionally well especially in his frame against eventual event winner Alexander Wills taking him to a respotted black before losing the frame.

25th March 2007
At the start the Redruth series of West of England Billiards & Snooker Foundation Bronze Waistcoat tournaments the overall winner was still in the balance as the tournament drew to an exciting conclusion. Aiden Johns, who had a slight chance of reaching the regional finals due to be held on the 21st April in Plymouth, started off by beating Alex Wills. Johns was trailing by 26 points before clearing the colours to the black which he fluked to pinch the frame. Johns followed this by easily beating Jamie Edwards in the next match. Johns’ good form took turn for the worst as he lost the next two matches. Jake Stewart needed to win the event and rely on James Freeman finishing third or less to qualify. Stewart won three of his four matches and lost just the one match to Alex Wills. James Freeman, who was leading the tour at the start of play, had two wins and two loses which to kept the pressure up on Jake Stewart. On the day the overall winner with 150 points was Alex Wills, who after losing to Johns in the very first match easily won the next three matches. Stewart finished runner-up by virtue of frame count-back with 130 points. James Freeman on 110 points finished 3rd which was enough to take the overall Redruth Bronze Waistcoat winner. Johns came 4th also with 100 points and Edwards 5th with 90 points.

The final ranking table positions to determine this years qualifiers for the regional finals sees James Freeman 1st (670 points) 2nd Jake Stewart (650) 3rd Alex Wills (600) 4th Jamie Edwards (510).
