Matthew runs World Champ close
The Norbreck castle Hotel in Blackpool was the venue for the 2006 World Pool CHampionships between 5-15 June 2006. The event was eventually won by top snooker player Mark Selby who played some astonishing pool to defeat England's Chris Melling (3) 10-5 in the Semis then World Number 1 Darren Appleton 11-7 in the final. The Ladies Singles went to Scotland's Sue Thompson and the Junior title to Aberdeen's Pat McCarron. Team titles went to Ireland (Men), France (Ladies), England (Juniors) and Scotland (Under 21s).
As reigning Scottish Tour number 1, Darren Matthew was seeded straight to the last 32 stage of the singles. Here Daz had probably the toughest draw of all being paired against the impressive Mark Selby. However Daz didnt disappoint and played a great match just failing to beat the eventual winner going out 8-6. This was Mark's toughest game on his way to the World Title and shows Darren has what it takes to go on and become World Champion in the future.
The next event for Darren is Strachan International Tour Event 4 at the Hilton Hotel in Blackpool from 14-16 July 2006.
