KING’S HEAD CONTINUE TO LEAD NEWPORT POOL LEAGUE

 

NEWPORT (Shropshire): The King’s Head extended their lead in the

2007-2008 Newport & District Pool League after a confident and hard-earned 5-1 win against Lilleshall Sports Centre last Wednesday evening.

 

Ian Perry set the ball rolling with a solid win against a stubborn Neil Perkins, with cautious safely play dominating a tactical game. Greg Heathcote pulled one back against an out-of-sorts Irene Whittingham, but a comfortable win for Neil Hallett against Ben Longstaff set the King’s Head on their way. When Dave Price was seven-balled off the break by Phil Himley the writing was on the wall and Matt Collins and Hallett wrapped up the match in the doubles.

 

The Junction A continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 5-1 victory over Norbury rivals Junction B. They now trail the King’s Head by a single point, although the two teams need to rearrange their crunch match that was postponed because of a clash with the recent England v Croatia football debacle.

 

The Wheatsheaf were held at home by a gritty Shakespeare side, but the Junction A got the better of the Sutherland Muxton to force their way into the top three. The Junction B also beat the Wheatsheaf to kick-start their season and the Wheatsheaf scrambled a point at the Boat in Gnosall last Wednesday. There are three match results missing to date.

 

Would teams please ensure that all match forms are returned to the Railway Tavern as soon as possible after games to ensure that league tables are as accurate as possible. Please also text the result to 07831 123153.
