Have your say

Majestic Mick Johnson pocketed a scintillating century break in Spalding and District Billiards League last week.

The Consti B maestro, who plays off an O160 handicap, racked up 100 in a 4-3 league loss to Crowland B. Rob Childs (O190) was in top form for the victors, trousering breaks of 49, 44 and 42 in his frame win.

At the top of the table, Holbeach B’s 4-3 win over Consti A all but assured them the title. Chris Chamberlain (R80) and Ashley Bunn (R90) won their frames to move them 13 points clear of second-placed Consti C.

Long Sutton are in the hunt for second after a big 7-0 win over Holbeach A, despite a dazzling 71 break from the evergreen Hugh Pinner (O170).

Elsewhere, Sid Shaw (O10) made a fine 53 break as Donington won 7-0 at Pyramid B.

Results: Consti B 3 Crowland B 4 (551-543); Long Sutton 7 Holbeach A 0 (600-337); Pyramid B 0 Donington 7 (457-600); Gosberton 5 Pyramid A 2 (595-546); Holbeach B 4 Consti A 3 (543-553); Long Sutton 7-0 w/o Gosberton.
