Last Thursday night saw the grand final and presentation of the 2018 Foster’s Golden Cue at Ighten Leigh.

The final was contested by large table champion Jonathan Hannan and small table champion Peter Mercer – who previously won the title in 2009 while Hannan was a debutant in the competition.

It was neck and neck after four frames, tied at 2-2, but Mercer used all his experience to take two frames on the bounce to seal victory with a 4-2 win that sees him finish as overall champion for 2018.

Hannan had secured the large table title with a 4-2 victory 0ver Stephen Croft, in a superb match with some top quality snooker played throughout.

And Mercer won the small table title with a 4-2 victory over the brilliant Adam Haslam.
