Johnstone squeezed past Birmingham’s Greg Smith in the semi final and Huddersfield’s Staurt King 21-15 in the quarter finals. He also knocked out Barrw’s Darren Woodend 21-17, Ellesmere Port’s Matty Worden 21-17 and Pudsey’s James Hanson 21-13 in the earlier rounds.

Numerous finals were concluded at the weekend.

In the WNCBA, St Albans captain Rob Lawrenson beat M Budworth 21-9 to lift the player of the year crown for the fourth time; St Oswalds A edged out St Albans 21-19; D Bennett came out on top 21-10 against C Morris in the Cunningham Cup Final.

J Howson took the Warrington Parks’ League player of the year crown with a 21-11 victory over M Burrows.
