NEWPORT POOL LEAGUE CAULDRON

SIMMERS INTO LIFE ON HALLOWEEN

NEWPORT (Shropshire): The 2012/2013 Newport & District Pool League got underway on Halloween night and several top teams survived the odd fright. There were week one wins for NRBL A and B, King’s Head A, LSC at the Tav, the Barley Mow, Horns B, Shake B, Tavern A and the Sutherland Arms.

Gnosall’s Navigation, the Wheatsheaf, King’s Head B, the Haberdashers at Knighton, Junction B, the Shakespeare A, Horns A, the Royal Navy Club and Junction A were on the receiving end, respectively.

NRBL B were the only team to secure a whitewash 6-0 victory, with new signing Simon Walley surviving a banana skin frame against former team-mate Nigel Sandbrook, as the Legion side reached the top of the league fpr the first time on the irrelevant first Wednesday of the season.

Former LSC cue Andy Miles switched to defending champions, NRBL A, and was an integral part in their 5-1 victory over the Navigation and Telford-based snooker and pool supremo Paul ‘Jump Start’ Cartledge fitted in well with LSC to secure a good win in Knighton.

Elsewhere, Mick Collins’s A team beat their King’s Head B compatriots and Stafford lothario and non-playing captain Dean Smith pieced together a quality team made up of Stafford’s new Newport Open champion Neil Dale, Market Drayton-based Newport doubles champions, Mick Manning and George Allen, and Stafford’s Will Edge to steal a 5-1 victory over the Shakespeare A in Newport.

In other matches, the newly-formed Barley Mow prepared well to seal a 1-5 victory at Junction B, with Gary Bolton hitting some stunning potting form, and the Shakespeare B managed to sneak a 4-2 victory at Horns A in Gnosall. The Sutherland Arms came from 0-2 down to defeat Junction A in Tibberton and the Railway Tavern cruised passed the Royal Navy Club with the loss of one frame.

Please note that team registration and league fees of £50 must be paid by the end of November.
