On Friday night in the C.I Billiards final played at Tower, Gary Britton defeated Martyn Desperques 500 to 301,
to win the title for the second year in a row and for the 7th time.
At the halfway mark Martyn was actually leading 259-242 having made a break of 60.
At this stage it looked like it was going to be a close finish, but a break of 78 from Gary changed the pattern
of the game, Martyn was unable to respond and with further breaks of 64 & 55 Gary stormed away and left Martyn
trailing in his wake to win by 199 points which seemed unlikely at the halfway stage.

Team snooker on Saturday resulted in a narrow win for Guernsey 13-12
Going into the last match the scores were level at 12 each  
The result could have been so different had Jersey had a bit more good fortune, having lost 4 frames on the black 
With the last red on the table Glenn was leading by one point 41-40.
Gary potted the red and was unfortunate for the white to just drop into middle bag. 
This gave Glenn the opportunity to clear the colours and duly took his chance by potting yellow to pink to win
the deciding frame against Gary Britton 65-40, to retain the title they won last year.
The highest break went to Gary Britton with an 83 in his first frame against John Skillett
