DANIEL Moses returned from university life in Bristol to claim victory in the second Kingfisher Grand Prix of the summer.

Boosted by the absence of pre-tournament favourite and the first event's winner Liam McTiernan, Moses confirmed his superiority over the rest of the field by claiming victory without dropping a single game.

His opponent in the final was Reading Boys’ Joe Barraclough, who had a great run to make his first ever Grand Prix Final.

However, he was no match for the brilliance of Moses and was despatched with relative ease 11-8, 11-2, 11-3.

Moses toughest test of the event was his semi-final against former champion Mark Banks, with the Shinfield man pushing him all the way before succumbing 15-13 in the third set.

Banks himself had been involved in the match-of-the-tournament so far when edging out previous runner-up Lewis Waddup 11-8 in the final set of a quarter-final match which had the crowd on the edge of their seats.

Moses had earlier beaten another former champion, Hamilton Road’s Hari Gehlot in his last eight encounter.

In the other half of the draw, Grand Prix debutant Julian Telford made great strides in the draw, with the Fords Farm man in particular producing an excellent performance to defeat the classy Ben Law 3-2 in their quarter-final.

Barraclough defeated the very promising Pranav Ghanta in the other quarter-final, with the junior boy performing brilliantly and in doing so closing the gap on older sister Jyothi in the overall standings for top junior player.

Barraclough’s semi-final with Telford was an entertaining affair with both players taking their turns to play shots from away from the table, but in the end Barraclough prevailed by a 3-1 scoreline to make his first ever final.

The consolation event was won by Ukranian star Artur Morar, who finally overcame a two-game deficit to beat the wily Roger Pritchard in an epic battle 3-2 in the final.
