Scott Harries made it three Bowring Open triumphs in seven year as he beat Dave King in the final 19 after surviving an almighty scare. He was 14-5 up before Dave got back to 18 and 19 across. Scott had beaten former Newport team mate Sam Millward in the Semi Finals 17, while Dave had ended the great run of team mate Paul Beer 12. In the Quarter Finals Scott defeated John Cotton 17 and Sam also won 17 against Darren Fielding. Dave stunned former winner Pete Farmer 7, and Paul beat Adam Penlington 15.
Scott said on his Facebook status, "I'm absolutely over the moon to win the Bowring Open today for the 3rd time in the last 7 years in such a cracking field. Road my luck in nearly every game but dug in there. Commiserations Dave King in the Final, best player by a mile all day. Fantastic end to the season."
