Cronin extends Under-19 lead
Ryan Cronin from the Crucible Snooker Club in Cork City proved too hot to handle in Navan. All the top four seeds came through to the semi-finals where Josh Boileau (Newbridge CYMS) accounted for David Cassidy(Crucible, Cork) on a score of 3 frames to 1. In the other semi Ryan overcame Christopher Cooney (Youghal) by 3 frames to 0. Josh took the high break prize with an outstanding 101 in his quarter final.
In the final Josh raced into an early 2 frame lead, however Ryan did not panic and brought himself back into the match with some excellent controlled play and finished much the stronger taking the last 3 frames in quick succession.
Presenting the prizes Tony Thorpe congratulated all who took part especially Ryan on his victory. Tony also thanked Chris and his son Darius for their hospitality and looked forward to many more tournaments in their excellent premises.
