AUDCO MARCH ON TOWARDS NEWPORT POOL TITLE

 

NEWPORT (Shropshire): Audco A maintained their effortless cruise towards a second successive Newport & District Pool League title with a 5-1 demolition of the Railway Tavern, as the league entered its second half.

 

The redoubtable Mick Beech saw off James Searle to give the away side the lead at Upper Bar and Colin Pink made light work of Ben Clews in frame two. Paul Trevor ruled the roost against G. Owen and Andy Lycett sealed the three points with a fourth-frame success over Andy Richardson.

 

Trevor and Beech made it five against Clews and Owen, but Searle and Richardson restored some pride for the home side with victory over Pink and Lycett. “We are on the homeward straight already,” boasted skipper Lycett.

 

The Wheatsheaf bounced back from their recent blip to trounce the Navigation A at Chetwynd Aston. “We needed this one,” said team spokesman Chris Cooper. “It is a bit tight in the middle of the table and we are better than our league position suggests.”

 

Skipper Mick Collins confirmed the King’s Head’s 4-2 victory over Junction B at Norbury, but the Shakespeare B team ran Wrockwardine Wood Football Club close in a 4-2 defeat for the second time in eight days.

 

Jack Jones was the star of the match between Audco B and Lilleshall Sports Centre and his two wins ensured that the points were shared and the Bellman’s Yard side maintained a grip on third in the league. The Navy Club’s return fixture against Junction A was postponed, because of an AGM at the Bellman’s Yard venue.

 

Could team please arrange to pay annual fees as soon as possible to enable trophies to be arranged in good time for the Neil Clark Memorial Trophy final and the end-of-season awards. Only five of the 14 teams have paid annual fees of £30 to date.

 

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.
