Jan 14th 1980 - Evening Telegraph: Century break in a garage match



Professional snooker came to a garage showroom on Friday night.  And a very good idea for a venue it provided to be, writes Q-Man.

About 250 people gathered at Sycamore Stamford, to see a best-of-seven-frames challenge between world champion Terry Griffiths and Peterborough star Markham Wildman. Wildman won 4-2 and notched the highest break of the evening, a splendid 113.

The event was presented by Sycamore's and United Dominions Trust finance company.  It was the second in a series of showroom events with which UDT and Wildman are linked, the pilot having been at Bury St Edmunds.

Referee was Mr Fred Peck of March and interval organ music was provided by Mr John Stainsby, of Fox's Music Centre, Peterborough.

Match details: (Breaks of 20 and over in brackets)
Frame 1: Griffith 76 (30 clearance, 26), Wildman 39 (20); 2 Griffiths 41 (24), Wildman 77 (30, 27 clearance); 3 Griffiths 0, conceded on last red, Wildman 103 (70, 33); 4 Griffiths 55 (39), Wildman 27 (21), conceded on pink; 5 Griffiths 0, Wildman 117 (113); 6 Griffiths 26, conceded on blue, Wildman 57 (23, 23); 7 Griffiths 65 (25 clearance, 24), Wildman 52 (24).
