KING’S HEAD AND NAVIGATION ‘A’ HELD TO DRAWS

 

NEWPORT (Shropshire): Score draws were the order of the day during week 14 of the Newport & District Pool League. The King’s Head were held to a 3-3 stalemate by lowly Navigation B at Gnosall and the Navigation A managed to achieve a similar score line at the Navy Club, the home side’s skipper Jez Price blaming his absence on the dropped frame that could have cost his team the win.

 

League leaders Audco A survived a tense visit to the Wheatsheaf at Chetwynd Aston and came away with three points for a 4-2 victory, despite the customary hostile reception for visiting teams.

 

Wrockwardine Wood Football Club were held to a 3-3 draw at Junction B, with young Luke Hayward and Dave Worrall blotting their copybooks against the lowly Norbury side. “The youngsters let us down on this occasion,” reflected captain Charlie Hayward.

 

The all-Shakespeare clash ended in a 3-3 draw, with B team members Ade Darrell, Kim Rigby and Hazel Ford-Lewis shocking the A team with wins in their singles matches. “We gave them quite a scare,” joked Ford-Lewis.

 

Lilleshall Sports Centre crashed to their third defeat of a woeful season against the resurgent Railway Tavern. Ben Clews edged Dave Price in a tight opening rack, James Searles beat a rusty Greg Heathcote in frame two and Ben Longstaff and Neil Hazeley were the next to fall.

 

Price, Heathcote, Stuart Weeden and Hazeley restored some pride in the doubles, but the Tavern collected the three points. “The Tavern enjoyed their cup final against Team Lilleshall,” quipped Price.

 

All match forms are to be delivered to Ian Roberts and/or Dave Wilkinson at the Railway Tavern in Newport and match results sent immediately by text message to 07831 123153. Please note that the Audco B team have now returned to playing home games from the Audco club.
