Team Knockout Cups, 2015/16

Canton Libs A have retained their 2016 CDSA Mac Keenor Handicap Cup title, after winning a close match 3-1 against their local rivals Canton Libs Z.

The Z side started well after Ralph Welch won a close opener against Ed Topham, but Luke Pitman restored parity with a comfortable victory over Bill Bainton.

Canton A then took the crucial third frame, as Twm Jones overcame Paul Chichester on the colours to put them one frame from the title.

The tightest frame of the night was next as Terry Garland took on David Thain, with both players feeling the tension as good chances were missed. The frame went to the colours and finally the black, and a Thain miss sent it flying round the table, just failing to fall into the middle pocket, leaving Garland an easy pot to seal the win.
