McCarthy wins Tour 4
The Hilton Hotel in Blackpool was the venue for Tour 4 of the 2006 Strachan International Pool Tour. The event took place between the 14th and 16th July. Number 3 seed Ronan McCarthy bounced back from losing to Darren Matthew at the recent World Masters to win this event, beating England international and number 8 seed Lee Clough in the final 8-6. In the fourth Club Open event of the season, the title was taken by Coventry's Liam Farrell who beat Jason Norris 6-5 in the final.
Darren started well in the Tour Event with a 7-0 whitewash of top England junior player Sam Jeffrey in quick time. In the last-128 Darren went up against the number 61 seed Scott Yardley and despite getting off to a good start ended up on the wrong end of a 7-6 last frame loss.
In the Club Open, Darren won his Prelim match 4-2 vs Ben Swinnerton a which set him up for a match with Bradley Robinson in the Last-128. This provided little problem for Daz who was on fire to win 4-0. Unfortunately he then came up against the accomplished Hitan Patel who ran out 4-1 winner.
The next event is again at the Hilton Hotel in Coventry between 26-28 August 2006.
