Worksop pool star Kev Seaman has regained his Seniors World Doubles title thanks to victories over the best senior players on the planet.

Seaman joined forces with Bristol’s Simon Doyle to overcome players from South Africa, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and fellow countrymen Tom Jones and Neil McDonnel.

A 4-0 victory over their compatriots helped Seaman to his second World Doubles title, four years after he won it with Steve Wooder.

The Worksop man adds the silverware to the World Singles title and European Seniors Singles title in his trophy cabinet, proving he’s one of the very best seniors in the game.

Domestically Seaman plays for Notts Blackball, along with representing the England Senior Team, with whom he got to the final of the Worlds, beating South Africa in the semi-finals.

A very good Scottish team beat England in the final, but Seaman could be pleased with his individual statistics, taking over 70 per cent.

In the same team fellow Notts player Jules Goodyear got 77 per cent, helping England to the runner-up spot.

England Seniors had won the last two events, the Nations Cup and the Europeans, showing their status as one of the best national sides.

A spokesman for Notts Blackball said: “Kev is a very good team player, as well as being a good singles and doubles player.”

Seaman owns AVR Digital and Satelitte Specialists in Worksop.
