Have your say

CONSTI C and Holbeach B continue to impress in the early rounds of the Spalding and District Billiards League season – but Long Sutton have also made a sizzling start.

Unbeaten Consti and Holbeach are locked together on 15 points after both stretched their winning runs to three games with 5-2 successes, while league newboys Sutton made it two triumphs from two.

Holbeach B had too much for Consti D as Chris Chamberlain (R80) made a 28 break, while Sutton edged out Gosberton 4.5-2.5. Adam Barwell (R10) top scored with a 29 break.

Elsewhere, Martin O’Connor (R10) trousered a 43 break as Pyramid B beat Consti B 5-2.

Steve Spencer (R100) pocketed a fine 32 for Consti.
