Pendle Pool League secretary Dean Emmott of Colne Legion has secured his eighth Individual Knockout title, after an epic three and a half hour battle with Alexandra SC’s Keith Ormerod Jnr.

Played over five frames, the Legion man got off to the best of starts, winning the first frame, and doubled his lead in frame two by clearing the table after his opponent went in-off from the break.

Totally unfazed, the Alex man drew upon his considerable tactical skill to force errors from his opponent in frames three and four, which allowed him to draw level.

However, in the deciding frame, Emmott was not to be denied, and he who eventually spotted an opportunity, which he played to perfection to clear his remaining four balls to take the title once more.
