AFTER a poor start in Division A of the Portishead & Pill District Skittles League, Royal Oak 69s were too strong for Division B side, The Sports, in the front pin cup competition.

Playing at home in front of an enthusiastic crowd at the Royal Oak, Portishead, captain Alan Prescott and Keith Gazzard got the team off to a good start

The 69s put the Sports continually on the back foot, finally running out 231-193 winners. It is hoped that a good cup run will be a boost for club confidence. At the moment the 69s are lying in ninth place in the league, only eight points from the drop zone. Anyone interested in playing can contact secretary Dave Beer on 07812 581341.
