The first Griffith Tour event was held in Sharkx Newbridge recently, with a great win for Annette Newman in this new series for 2017.  The €3,000 Griffith Tour now in its 6th season, is a great success for the organisers.

On her way to the final Annette had good 2 nil wins over Alan Beale in the quarters and Christine Carr in the Semis while in the other half of the draw, we saw Leon Costello reach his first Tour final with a 2-1 win over Peter McDermott in the quarters and 2-0 win over Dan Carroll in the semis.

The final saw Annette playing some great snooker and held onto early leads in the frames to keep the pressure on Leon to win the first Griffith Tour event of the new season.

Congratulations to Annette on her win and to Leon on a great performance.

Annette now tops the table with Leon in 2nd spot followed closely by Dan and Christine in 3rd and 4th respectively.

In the plate event we saw father and son Dave and Gary Seales contest the final with the match going in Dave’s favour.  Well done to Dave on his win and to Gary on reaching the final.  Dave now tops the plate ranking with Gary 2nd followed by Alan Beale 3rd and Declan Tuohy 4th.

Thanks to Paul & Bernie of Sharkx for their hospitality and support and we look forward to Griffith Tour 2 event in April.
