Croxton & White Cruise to Qualification

The hometown pairing of Jimmy Croxton & Liam White dropped just one frame as they won Group 2 and qualified for the last 16 of the Pairs Cup on Monday night in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The professional combination of ‘The Joker’ and ‘Danger Mouse’ gelled very well at their practice venue of Players Pool and Snooker Lounge, and were comfortable throughout.

They defeated Lee Cummins & Keith Warren 4-0 and then Scott Rutter & Darrell Whitworth 3-1 to put themselves in a strong position heading into the final tie of the evening.

Their opponents in that match would be Glenn Cahir & Craig Hart, who were just one point behind following a draw and a win. However, with the safety net of a draw on their side, Croxton & White scored a 3-0 victory to advance to the second phase of the unique pairs event and join defending champions Shaun Chipperfield & Karl Sutton who won the opening group.
