Carl Parnell made one of the top breaks of the Spalding and District Snooker League season so far in a rearranged match last week.

The Long Sutton B ace, who plays off an O42 handicap, reeled off a super 71 as his side defeated Holbeach A 4-2 in Division One.

That effort was just five shy of Sean Swinburn’s early-season benchmark of 76 for fellow club side Long Sutton A.

Also in the top flight, relentless Tulips A moved to the top of the pile with their fifth win from as many games.

They crushed previous leaders Holbeach C 5-1 to record their best win of their biggest win of the season so far, with talisman Bren Bowman (O63) making a 47 break and Nick Savic (O35) adding a super 37.

There was also a cool 27 clearance from Chris Scoulding (O7), which included a stunning final black.

Tulips B are only one point behind their friendly foes in second after also registering a 5-1 triumph. Their win came at Long Sutton D, with Martin Deacon (O7) pocketing a 20 break.

At the other end of the table, Donington C picked up their first win of the season with a narrow 4-2 home success over talented Long Sutton A.

Neil Reynolds (O49), Ben Wrigglesworth (scr) and Matt Turner (R14) got the frame wins in a 4-2 home return.

In Division Two, Services C bagged their fourth win from four games to climb to the summit.

They dispatched Crowland B 5-1, with Nigel Cherry’s (O7) 22 clearance the highlight.

Bourne Snooker Centre A are up to third despite suffering a 4-2 loss at Whittlesey B, who toasted their maiden triumph so far this season.

A 42 break from star player Mark Gray wasn’t enough for the Bourne side.

Elsewhere, Gosberton B enjoyed an impressive 5-1 win over Whittlesey C.

Black-ball frame successes from Adam Twigg (O7) and Sam Craft (R14) proved key for the hosts.

Down in Division Three, Holbeach B suffered their first beating as Gosberton C handed them a 4-2 home reverse. A black-ball win from Malc Dennis (R7) helped the visitors take the spoils.

Gosberton A are going great guns in fourth after seeing off Donington D 4-2. Lee Watson (O7), Carl Wand (R7) and James Waterfall (O7) were the frame winners.

Towards the foot, Boundary C grabbed their first victory after dispatching hosts Consti C 4-2. Aiden Sutton’s (R14) victory in the penultimate frame got the job done.
