In the second Final for the Co-op European Masters Tourcard Trophy No 2 it was a great battle between Lincoln & District’s Billy Jackson against newcomer from Swale, Perry Martin. By the end og the 7th end it was 7-4 to Martin. Jackson made a single on the 8th but it was over to Martin who took the next two ends with a double and a single to take the first set 10-5.
In the second set it was Jackson that started of well going 3-5 up and playing well but then it seemed as if the wheels had come off as Martin displayed superb skill as he took the next 4 ends to reverse the score to 9-5. End 8 and Jackson grabbed a well deserved single but again Martin retaliated taking a double on end 9 to go 11-6 up. This left Jackson with a mountain to climb in just 2 ends left. He took a double on the 10th but the full house was not to be and Martin took the second set and match 11-9.
A delighted Perry Martin said,” I honestly never thought I could really do it and I am over the moon and looking forward to the WBT season. It is going to be great to play in the TV events!”
