STAG CRUSH ROYAL NAVY CLUB TO IMPROVE FRAME DIFFERENCE

NEWPORT (Shropshire): A single point continues to separate LSC at the Tavern and Market Drayton’s Stag after 13 matches in the Newport Pool League. Both sides had very different paths to recording victories over Junction B and the Royal Navy Club on Wednesday night.

Andy Miles set LSC on their way against Steve Purves only for Ryan Morris to level against Ray Talbot. Ben Longstaff got the better of Mick Ashforth to make it 2-1 and Ant Heathcote made it 3-1 with a win over Stu Till.

LSC hearts fluttered a little when Morris and Till beat Greg Heathcote and Andy Lewis to pull a frame back and make it 3-2, but the home side prevailed in the final leg to seal both points. The Stag trounced the Royal Navy Club to improve their frame difference.

Shakespeare B put up little resistance against Pheasant B in Upper Bar. Barry Smith edged the opener against Craig Hutchinson to put the home side ahead, but it was one-way traffic from then on, with Scott Smith and Luke and Jack Jones making it 1-3. Hutchinson and Luke Jones dealt the coup de grace in the fifth rack.

Junction A hosted the inconsistent Shakespeare A in Norbury, but the away side returned to convincing winning ways after three unfortunate 2-4 defeats and sealed both points without dropping a frame. Dean Smith, Russ Woodhouse, Kevin Genner, Tom Vernon and debutant Chris Nolan stepped up to the plate on the night.

The Horns edged the all-Gnosall clash with the Navigation and the Wheatsheaf entertained Haberdashers Arms in the final match of the night and sealed a tense match by a similar odd frame. Wins for Martyn Holford, David Jolley and debutant James Wright boosted the Horns’s challenge.

The results of the matches between Pheasant A and the Honeysuckle, King’s Head A and the Railway Tavern and Newport Legion and King’s Head B had not been received as we closed for press.
