Final of the Roy Tromans Memorial Captains’ Cup held at Stourbridge Institute: Callum Downing (Hotshots SC) (minus 18) beat Reece Bahia (Bahia’s SC) (+32) 2-0.

Callum Downing, who conceded 50 points start per frame, gradually recovered the start and took the opening frame on the brown.

Having to play safe after taking the first red in the next frame, Callum then potted a long red next visit and cleared another 12 reds for a superb break of 87 which clinched the match.

Reece hadn’t been given a chance, but then cleared the colours to gain a little consolation. A clearance to pink would have enabled Callum to beat his own 117, the highest break in a knock-out event.

It has been an excellent season for Bahia’s, and for Reece, who retained his second division individual title, while Callum was able to celebrate yet another championship: he took the final frame of the season on this same table for Hotshots to enable them to lift the Premier League championship, then they added the Plate Handicap.

He followed up with the West Midlands “double” of the challenge cup, coming through six rounds, conceding between 70 and 294 points start to their opponents despite enjoying home advantage only once, and the first division championship.

Not content with that haul, Callum also helped his Hotshots’ team-mates, assembling as Oldbury, to beat Landywood 4-2 in the final of the West Midland Inter-Town event the night after they secured the retention of the league title.
