STAG AND LEGION BEGIN SEASON WITH WHITEWASH WINS

NEWPORT (Shropshire): Market Drayton’s Stag, the Newport & District Pool League’s defending champions, and the Newport Legion began their title challenges with a pair of whitewash wins after the first week of fixtures.

The Stag overcame a potentially tricky encounter at Norbury to see off Junction A and the Legion’s new-look team of Mick Beech, Jason Taphouse, Simon Walley and Jack Dicken saw off the latter’s former side, the Railway Tavern, in Upper Bar.

They were joined on maximum points by LSC at the Tav, who benefited from the Honeysuckle’s decision not to attend the fixture with only two players, despite the penalty of a two-point deduction for such a gesture.

Junction B got their league season off to a winning start after dropping just one frame at the Royal Navy Club and there were also useful away wins for Gnosall’s Horns against the Shakespeare A and Pheasant B over their A team in Upper Bar.

The Haberdashers Arms saw off the challenge of Shakespeare B with the loss of two frames and Navigation overcame two-man King’s Head B by a similar score line.

The outcome of the match between the King’s Head A and the Wheatsheaf had not been received as we closed for press.
