D’IMPERIO THE THIRD-SUPER G COMPLETES HISTORIC UNDER 23’S TREBLE

Man on a mission Giuseppe D’Imperio marked his farewell Under 23’s singles tournament by adding the WEPF World 8-Ball title to his European and National successes.

D’Imperio, runner-up in the men’s singles in 2014, defeated 2015 World Junior champion, Aaron Davies 8-4 in the final.

“It was my last year so it’s nice to win it,” said the Twickenham based cueman who knocked out Josh Kane 7-4 in the last four.

“My better matches were in the semi-finals and final; thankfully the most important rounds.

“I had never played Aaron before but I knew it was going to be tough, especially after his run in the men’s event. Anyone who beats Adam Davis 8-1 is a great competitor.”

D’Imperio’s only disappointment came in the men’s event where, seeded five, he lost 8-5 to Norfolk’s Shaun Chipperfield in the last 64.

“He was on fire against me,” said D’Imperio of next Tuesday’s semi-finalist. “I don’t feel I had a bad match particularly but there were a couple of shots went his way.

“I couldn’t have done any more,” added D’Imperio who won 18 of his 21 frames in the team event.“I’ve had a fantastic year with the lads and it’s onwards and upwards.”

Lancastrian Davies, still only 18, reflected on a good week’s work after debuting in the men’s and Under 23 singles. His highlight was his stunning, last 32 demolition of 2011 world champion, Adam Davis.

“I have had a good tournament and played really well,” he agreed. “I could easily have gone out in the last 32 when I was 5-3 down against Jayme White of Australia but came back to win 6-5.

“In the final Giuseppe played really well and I am still really pleased.”

There was a surprise in the team event where England B side of: Liam Gollop, Tom Church, Adam Bassoo and Callum Singleton, defeated Ireland’s team of: Jordan Doyle, Jordan Synott and Jamie Gaffney 5-2.
