SHAKESPEARE WRECK JUNCTION A’s UNBEATEN RECORD

 

NEWPORT (Shropshire): League newcomers Shakespeare took a superb 4-2 win at previously unbeaten Junction A, as the league took a wide open ‘Championship’ feel to it. The visitors rocked the solid Staffordshire side to leap into the top four in the league and cost the Junction A team their chance of topping the table for the first time.

 

The table-topping King’s Head – who were dramatically knocked out of the cup by the inconsistent Lilleshall Sports Centre before the Christmas break - dropped their first points of the league campaign after being held to a 3-3 draw at Chetwynd End by a determined third-placed Audco side, who have now taken two draws in the last two games.

 

Matt Collins and Ian Perry got the home side off to a dream start with a 2-0 lead, but Paul Trevor and Andy Lycett pegged them back to 2-2 with some dogged play. The King’s Head made it 3-2 in the first of the doubles’ matches, but Tom Sayce potted a great red and a winning black for the visitors to eke out a superb draw in the second doubles’ match.

 

The Junction B earned a 3-3 draw at bottom-of-the-table New Inn, but the result for the match between the Navy Club and the Sutherland Arms at Muxton ended in a 4-2 away win for the Telford side.

 

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.
