JUNCTION A CLOSE THE GAP ON NEWPORT POOL LEAGUE LEADERS

NEWPORT (Shropshire): With two matches postponed and neither of the top two involved in Newport & District Pool League action, it was down to Junction A to close the gap on the pace-setting NRBL A and LSC at the Tav with a 4-2 victory over the Horns at Norbury.

An under-strength Shakespeare were always going to struggle against NRBL B at Upper Bar, especially with skipper Andy Potter away following England’s cricket tour of Sri Lanka. But the home side dug deep and managed to hold the visitors to a 3-3 draw.

The Sutherland Arms leap-frogged the King’s Head A into fourth position with a 4-2 victory over Gnosall’s Navigation in Tibberton.

The Wheatsheaf played out a tense contest with the Railway Tavern at Chetwynd Aston and honours were shared after the customary late finish at the ‘Sheaf.

The Plough entertained Junction B in Woodseaves and looked to be heading for victory with the match poised at 3-2 to the home side, but their Staffordshire rivals hit back in the final doubles rack to seal a useful draw.

King’s Head B hosted Newport Arms Hotel in a bottom of the table clash at Chetwynd End and honours were shared in a closely fought contest, according to visiting captain Kim Rigby.
