Wayne Martin successfully defends his Seniors Championship title

Wayne Martin didn’t drop a frame as he emerged a 4-0 winner in the final on Friday evening. His opponent Gary Spencer was unable to hit the heights that enabled him to win the Senior Handicap title last month.

Gary played some terrific safety but Wayne dealt with it admirably and he produced a solid performance with some modest scoring by his high standards to secure the victory.
