The first semi-final match saw Mark Thompson beat Ed Winter 3-0 in the over 60’s. The second semi-final saw the best match of the tournament between Roy Robinson and Steve Williams which Steve won 10-8 in the 5th game. For the over 60’s finals Mark Thompson overwhelmed Steve Williams 3-0 to win the Yorkshire Closed over 60’s trophy.
First on in the 65’s semi-final was Martin Day against number 2 seed Mike Clemson. The seedings were upset by Martin Day beating Mike Clemson 3-1. In the second semi-final Adrian Wright had a walk-over (due to John Alderson’s injury). In the final Adrian Wright was too strong for Martin Day winning 3-1, having the benefit of not playing the semi-final match.
Although there was a small entry, the weekend at Barnsley was a real success.
