STAG CLOSE TO WITHIN A POINT OF LSC IN NEWPORT POOL LEAGUE

NEWPORT (Shropshire): Market Drayton’s Stag closed the gap at the top of the Newport Pool League to a single point after LSC at the Tav were held to a 3-3 draw in a heated exchange against King’s Head A in Upper Bar.

The Drayton side dropped just one frame on their way to a 1-5 win over Pheasant B, but words were exchanged in the LSC match after Trevor Smith and Irene Whittington of the King’s Head team continued to talk to each other and touch the table between shots in a crucial doubles rack when the away side were leading 2-3.

The rule clearly states that talking to a doubles partner is only permitted away from the table and not after a player has touched the table. A referee is entitled to call a foul for a blatant infringement of the rule and an opposing captain is within his rights to complain to the referee if this persists.

Shakespeare A crept to within one point of the top of the Newport League Plate with a hard-earned 2-4 win over Junction B in Norbury. Russ Woodhouse got the better of Steve Purves to make it 0-1, but Mick Ashforth and Stu Till hit back to make it 2-1, before Dean Smith beat James Boult to level. The away side claimed both doubles frames.

The Railway Tavern recorded a useful 1-5 away win at King’s Head B, with Jason Lloyd the only away player to blot his copybook. Horns played their home fixture at the Wheatsheaf and prevailed by the odd frame and honours were shared in the matches between the Navigation and the Honeysuckle and the Royal Navy Club and the Haberdashers.

Results of matches involving the Newport Legion, Pheasant A, Shakespeare B and Junction A were not available as we closed for press.
