LONG Sutton are this year’s winners of the Cliff Hall Memorial Shield after producing a cracking display in Friday night’s final.

The talented quintet of Adam Barwell, Matthew Smith, Sean Swinburn, Mick Cooper and Stuart Atkin roared to a 5-1 final triumph over Skegness at Donington.

Frame wins came from Swinburn, Smith, Cooper and Atkin – with the latter two edging very close matches with M Pickworth and S Runkin respectively.

Skegness did manage to pick up one frame through K Willets, but Sutton proved to be too strong.

The highest break in the competition was scored by Donington player Richard Holstead (59).

Result: Skegness 1 Long Sutton 5 (N Salmon 18 S Swinburn 62; S Mooney 26 M Smith 59; K Willetts 57 A Barwell 26; M Pickworth 57 M Cooper 60 (BBG); S Runkin 43 S Atkin 44).
