Wayne Brown secured his first English Seniors Tour title of the season with a 4-0 victory over James Brown in the final of event five at Cuetopia in Kettering.
The 2019 English Seniors Championship winner didn’t drop a single frame en route to the second day of the event with successive 4-0 victories over Kevin Willsher, Andy Miliard and Andy Yates.
Wayne Brown kicked off the Sunday in comfortable fashion with breaks of 111 and 125 on the way to a 4-1 quarter-final win over Sanjay Meghani, but then found himself in trouble in the semi-final against Shaun Wilkes.
After losing the opener, Wilkes fired in breaks of 63 and 55 to help him move to within one frame of the final at 3-1. However, Wayne Brown battled back to take the final three frames in hard-fought fashion to win the match in a decider and book his place in a second final of the English Seniors Tour season.
There he would meet James Brown who, after a comfortable Saturday that saw him drop just a single frame on his way to the last eight, had beaten both John Welsh and Stephen Delaney 4-2 to reach the final.
The final proved to be a nervy affair with just a single break over thirty, but it was Wayne Brown who ran out the victor 4-0 to secure the title and end the English Seniors Tour season ranked second behind only three-time event winner Craig Steadman.
Next up for the English Seniors Tour players will be the prestigious English Seniors Championship, which takes place next weekend (27-28 January) at Landywood Snooker Club. You can follow the event on WPBSA Snooker Scores.
