The two Conservative teams played each other in the Clevedon & District Snooker League.

It was a local derby for the two Conservative teams in the Clevedon & District Snooker League.

It started well for Conservative A when Alan Pople beat Dave Sansum 57-29, before Mark Walsh doubled the lead, while making a 27 break to beat John Morse 59-18.

Conservative A captain made it 3-0 win a win over Dave Brooks 58-19, and Phil Daniels kept the winning ways for his team as he beat Mark Adams 69-33.

Adams and Brooks looked like they were going to take the pairs frame until an outrageous fluked snooker from Hind, paired with Walsh, turned the frame. Hind missed the last red, but the cue ball stuck between the black ball and the cushion in the corner of the table.

Adams narrowly missed the escape, but this handed the advantage to the Con A team who went on to win 48-45. Final score Conservative B 0, Conservative A 5.

Pete Skinner took the opening frame for BS20 Sports A 52-13 against Frank Archer and Paul Honess beat Trevor Yeo 66-30 for an early 2-0 lead for the visitors against Mizzymead in Nailsea.

Steve King won his frame 63-23 over Bob Selby to give his team the match win, but Simon Cambridge made a break of 22 in the fourth frame to beat Ron Reeves 63-27 to pull a frame back for the hosts.

The pairs frame was a close frame that saw BS20’s Reeves and Skinner narrowly win 45-42 against Cambridge and Tucker. Reeves made a 20 break in the frame. Final score Mizzymead 1, BS20 Sports A 4.
