Exmouth and District Snooker League player Graham Ward re-wrote the record books as he became the first player in almost half a century to win both the league's Open Snooker and Open Billiards titles.
Ward, who had previously won the Billiards top honour, defeated Open Snooker defending champion, Carl Rowsell by four frames to one.
The double success is the first time this has been achieved since it was done by Derek 'Dingo' Davey back in 1961!
At the conclusion of the Open Snooker final, league president John Anderson presented the trophies including the Exmouth and Snooker League Championship trophy which went home with East Budleigh.
The successful East Budleigh team comprised of Kev Luxton, Mark Auton, Alan Farrant, Barry Bentley and Graham Ward.
