WHEATSHEAF CRUSH LSC IN POOL LEVELLER

 

NEWPORT (Shropshire): Draws dominated the 22nd week of matches in the Newport & District Pool League, with neither Audco ‘A’ nor King’s Head playing a match. But the stars of the week were the Wheatsheaf, who crushed fading Lilleshall Sports Centre, 5-1, in the biggest upset of the week.

 

The Wheatsheaf ran riot against a woeful Lilleshall side at Chetwynd Aston, with the ‘Sheaf’s slow table proving to be a real leveller. Only Greg Heathcote troubled the scorers for the visitors, but there were singles wins for Al Harvey, Chris Cooper and Paul Skitt in the Wheatsheaf demolition and two doubles match wins to seal the rout.

 

“Skitty got his spirit level out and it worked wonders,” joked Cooper. “They came, they tried and we kicked their butts. Al Harvey was on fire tonight.”

 

Honours were shared in the mid-table clash between the Railway Tavern and the Shakespeare ‘A’ and there was a similar 3-3 scoreline in the match between the Navy Club and the Audco ‘B’. “The balls let us down tonight,” said Navy Club skipper Jez Price. “We should have taken all three points.”

 

A date mix-up threatened to force the postponement of the match between the Junction ‘A’ and Wrockwardine Wood Football Club. Norbury captain Hyla Marklew had postponed the game the previous week because two players were away on holiday, but the Telford side turned up at the Junction for the match and Marklew managed to pull together a makeshift side and earn a 3-3 draw for the home team.

 

In the final match of the week, the Shakespeare B managed to beat the Junction B, 4-2, at Upper Bar and draw level on points with the Norbury side at the foot of the table.

 

Could the nine team captains who have not paid their annual fees, please arrange for monies to be left with Ian Roberts at the Railway Tavern as soon as possible, as the league co-ordinator needs to begin arranging end-of-season awards and cup final trophies.

 

All match forms are to be delivered to Ian Roberts at the Railway Tavern in Newport and match results sent immediately by text message to 07831 123153.
