White Lion B beat Winston’s A 4-2 to win the Leaver Bros. Memorial Trophy Final.

Frame one was a cagey affair with Earby pair Phil Beveridge and Lyndon Watson overcoming Andy McNicholas and Philip Smith.

Chris Farrell and Neil Crabtree were next up for White Lion against experienced Winston’s duo John Hacking and Ian Holgate, and again the Earby pair prevailed.

Winston’s Andy McNicholas pulled a frame back, beating Geoff Alderson, and in frame four, Winston’s Phil Smith drew the match level.

Frame five saw Ian Holgate lose out to Chris Farrell, before a spectacular double from Dave Birnie enabled him to beat John Hacking and seal the match for White Lion.
