Dave Seals took the 2017 Griffith Club Country Classic event at Sharkx Newbridge recently beating Annette Newman in the final 2 frames to nil in a close contest.

On his way to the final Dave had very close matches against Dan Carroll in the quarters on a black ball finish in the 3rd frame and again against his son Gary 2-1 in the semis to reach the final for the second year in a row.  This is Dave’s 5th time to win the title since he started with the club back in 2007.

Annette had good wins over Declan Tuohy in the quarters 2-nil and a 2-1 win over Alan Beale in the semis to meet Dave in the final.  Both these players have met on many occasions in the past and are evenly paired on results, however it was Dave who came out the victor on this occasion with a close result against Annette to take the title.

Congratulations to Dave on his win and to Annette for a great performance throughout.  Thanks to all the players for their participation and support.  Thanks to Bernie and Paul of Sharkx for all their help and support.
