Conservative A nearing league championship title

PUBLISHED: 14:59 20 March 2018 | UPDATED: 14:59 20 March 2018




The Conservative A team is two frames away from winning the Clevedon & District Snooker League.

There were two derby matches last week in the Clevedon & District Snooker League as the season gets close to the end.

BS20 Sports A were hosts to RH in the first match and despite a 21 break for Paul Smart it was the home player Steve King who took the opening frame 55-43 before Ron Reeves doubled the advantage 50-19 over Kevin King.

Ray Moorcroft made it three and ensured the home win as he beat Des Gilbert 65-43, and Paul Honess took the fourth frame for BS20 Sports A too with a 63-22 win against Chris Scott.

BS20 Sports RH took the pairs frame with Smart making a 32 break as he was paired with Gilbert to beat Honess and Skinner 65-28. Final score BS20 Sports A 4, BS20 Sports RH 1.

The second match was three-man Conservative A against Conservative B. Mark Walsh won the first frame 54-21 and made a 31 break as he easily beat Dave Sansum, and Phil Daniels scored a point for his side with a 62-33 victory over John Morse.

Alan Pople (A) beat Dave Brooks (B) on the pink ball 47-38 in a frame that could have gone either way. Pople was also in action in frame four, actually played first on the night, as his team were a man short.

Mark Adams was his opponent and Pople had few chances as the Conservative B captain used the 20-point start to take the frame 66-11 for his team.

Daniels and Walsh paired up for the final frame of the evening and despite the 88-49 final frame score it was a close frame up to the final red for Adams and Morse. Final score Conservative A 4, Conservative B 1.

The victory for Conservative A means that they are two frames away from the league title. To stop Conservative A winning the league, BS20 Sports A will need to win their three remaining matches 5-0 and have Conservative A slip up against both Portishead teams.

League table: Conservative A (played 14) 52 points; BS20 Sports A (13) 37; BS20 Sports RH (13) 33; Conservative B (14) 26; Mizzymead (12) 17.
