Pool ace Josh Corkett wins Bridgwater and District singles title
POOL ace Josh Corkett didn't let a broken arm stop him being crowned the Bridgwater and District Singles champion after beating Pat Hall 7-0 at finals night.
The event was held at Cue Club in Bridgwater and Welsh international and former European pool champion Oly Bale presented the trophies.
Four times winner Hall was in his seventh final but was no match for former England Under 21 international Corkett.
Speaking to the Mercury, Corkett said: “The cast on my arm was a bit uncomfortable but I just had to get on with it.
“I felt I played pretty well and I'm just concentrating on the Pro Tour tournaments now and the England Trials.”
Former East Bridgwater student, Corkett, 21, was also part of the team Pot the Lot B who swept the board at the finals night, being crowned Premier League winners, three a side winners, four a side winners, team knockout winners, pairs winners and runners up, champions of champions winners.
