The deciding frame started in tight fashion but while Law struggled for an opening, Collins held his nerve and took control of the frame to win it 54-17 and lift the cup.

League secretary John Mitchell said: “This was an excellent match contested by two very good players who are a credit to their teams and the league.

“It was also the first time that the two finalists were from the same club, well done to both of them.”
