ESP B 1 - 7 Document House Submitted: 15/04/2018
ESP B took on Document House this week with ESP needing points in their battle for 3rd spot in the League and Doc House needing as many points as possible to boost their outside change of the title.
It was Doc House who came out on top taking 7 of the 8 points available. Dale Prout and Neil Winkworth won their games against Tim Page and Mark Head respectively, and Jonjo SHarkey took both frames against Steve Cobb.
ESP's point came courtesy of Paul Godwin in his first frame against Phil Simmons. Paul took the first frame comfortably and with Phil very much out of sorts, money would have been on him to take the second as well. But Phil had other ideas and was literally a different player in the second frame, potting freely to take the game comfortably and complete the 7-1 win for Doc House.

Shaw Raiders 5 - 3 Castle A Submitted: 13/04/2018
Shaw Raiders were at home to Castle A in an eagerly awaited match. Once the initial banter was over the game began. Probably nobody thought that all 4 match-ups would end in a very close and entertaining game.
The first game saw two silver foxes pitched against one another namely, John Apicella and Roy Young. John was potting well in the first frame and established a lead with Roy not really getting in his stride. John cleared he last 4 balls for a 22 break and ran out a convincing winner 61-13. Roy upped his game in the second frame and with the aid of much improved potting took the frame 50-32.
The second match was between Mike Ainsworth and the venerable Rob Thomson. Mike was comfortably in the lead in the first frame but Rob played 4 consecutive snookers and Mike could not respond to them enabling Rob to win the frame 59-51. The second frame was a close affair but Mike was not going to let this go as he triumphed 46-41.
So at the halfway stage the match was all square.
The third game pitched Bob Low against Dennis Doswell. For various reasons neither player has played in many matches this season and it showed in the first frame which was a low scoring affair with Bob winning 36-30. In the second frame Bob was ahead by 13 with just 2 balls left but Dennis managed to pot both and force a re-spotted black. After a few attempts by both players it was Bob who finally sank the black to take the frame
The final match was between Brian Leonard and the high flying Rob East. The first frame was nip and tuck with good scoring but it was Brian who potted the black to win by the narrowest of margins 68-67, a result which earned him "man of the match". The second frame was a low scoring game with Rob winning 38-23.
So at the end of the evening Shaw Raiders celebrated a rare win 5-3.
Both teams always look forward to meeting up for these matches not only for the games but for the banter, laughs and a really sociable evening. This year was no different.
The OddBalls 4 - 4 Good Bad & Ugly Submitted: 13/04/2018
First up Tony Lyles vs Daniel Brewin. Tony dominated the first as Daniel struggled to pot colours from the reds. However Daniel potted really well in frame 2 taking a good early lead. The reds were open and Tony dug deep to claw back into the frame. A great clearance of 27 by Tony saw him take the frame by a comfortable margin - but it was a lot closer than the score suggests.
Next was Macauley Fyffe and Mark Brewin. Mark always seem to hold a 20 lead which was helped by Macca giving away too many fouls. At the end of frame 1 Macca did stage a comeback only for Mark to take the final colours. Similar second frame where Mark dominated.
Rob Marks then played Norman Byng. Rob played really well in the first and scored heavily. The second was might tighter thoughout. A scrappy affair where neither player could get a decent lead. Rob tended to hold a small margin, but with Norm needing the final 3 colours Rob looked the favourite. A great blue with the rest by Norm and position on the pink suddenly changed everything. He calmly took out the pink and black to snatch the frame. Well deserved.
Finally was Matty Fyffe and Andy Fair. Matty clinched the first in a tight frame, but Andy was stronger in the second and easily won to take the final frame of the match.
Final score 4-4. Good game gents!
