A victory over near namesake James McKenzie (Forres Legion 2) in the final of the competition saw the New Club 1 (Elgin) player take the title.

Both semi-finals and the final were played at the New Club, and each of the final four had never won before meaning there would be a new name on the silverware.

James McKenzie defeated 147 Club’s Stephen McCracken, who managed a nice 41 break in his 4-1 defeat to the Forres player.

The host club was represented by both players in the other semi-final, a battle of the MacKenzies between New Club 1’s Raymond and stable mate Richard, who plays for the club’s second team.

In the second semi final it was a home club derby which saw Raymond (New Club 1) win the first battle of the Mackenzies he would win this evening as he won the match vs Richard (New Club 2) 4-0.

The final was unexpectedly one sided in terms of the results with Raymond beating James in the second battle of the M(a)cKenzies! He took the match 4-0 knocking in a nice 51 break in the process.

Well done to all players but particularly to Raymond Mackenzie the Moray Snooker Handicap Trophy Champion 2024…
