Daz loses out to Harrison in Hinckley
The Paramount Hotel in Hinckley was the venue for Tour 2 of the 2006 Strachan International Pool Tour. The event took place between the 14th and 17th April and it was to prove a successful one for number 4 seed Phil Harrison who defeated friend Darren Appleton 8-7 in a thrilling final. In the second Club Open event of the season, the title was taken by Dave Arnold who beat Steven Petty 6-4 in the final.
Darren started well in the Tour Event with a quickfire 7-1 win against fellow new player Roger Charles in the Prelims. In the next round Andrew Herriot (the number 78 seed) provided much sterner opposition and Darren scraped through the match in a last frame decider 7-6. In the Last-128 an excellent performance against tour regular Matt Cooke (55) saw Darren ease through 7-3 and set up a mouth watering tie against number 4 seed and regular England international Phil 'The Farmer' Harrison in the Last-64. Despite some early promise in the match from Darren, Phil provided a quality consistant display of finishing to win 7-3.
In the Club Open, Darren came up against an on-form Michael Peel and lost 4-1 in the Prelims.
This event saw Darren pick up some good ranking points in the Tour Event which will boost his ranking position. The next event is again at the Paramount Hotel in Hinckley between 26-29 May 2006.
