First-time entrant Dan Hird made it to the final of this month’s pool competition at Jackson’s lounge, but regular Ben Manship took the spoils.

In the semis Ben Jackson managed to get a frame off him before succumbing 3-1.

Hird topped his group to set up a semi-final with Andrew Swann, winning 3-2.

It was Manship who held his nerve beating the newcomer 4-2 in the final.
