NRBL A IN CRUISE CONTROL AS KING’S HEAD A CLOSE IN

NEWPORT (Shropshire): NRBL A took full advantage of the postponement of the LSC at the Tav/Wheatsheaf clash to extend their lead at the top of the Nayput & District Pool League to 10 points with a narrow win in controversial circumstances over the Shakespeare.

King’s Head A cruised into second place at the expense of LSC with a crushing 5-1 win over their B team. Graham Tigwell, Ian Perry, Irene Whittington and Jamie James sealed the points in the singles racks, only for Lucy Hennessey and Lyn Day to restore some pride for the ‘visitors’ against James and Whittington in the doubles frames.

The Sutherland Arms were made to work hard for a 6-0 victory in a heated atmosphere at the Newport Arms Hotel.

The Navigation hosted the Railway Tavern in Gnosall and the visitors came away with all three points on a night when Stu Morrey and Dave Bristow put the home side 0-2 up against Ian Hogarth and Geoff Arrowsmith.

Julie Cheal and Steve Smith levelled the match with useful frame wins over Adam Stone and Greg Quinn, but the visitors prevailed in the doubles with Andy Richardson joining Morrey in rack six to seal all three points.

Junction B won a close contest at the Royal Navy Club by the odd frame and NRBL B got the better of the Horns in Gnosall by a similar score line.

Junction A recovered from a run of disappointing results with a close 4-2 victory over the Plough at Woodseaves, with the away side rueing their luck in the final frame.
