POOL: No favours as Drayman’s A denied perfection

Have your say

DRAYMAN’S Arms A have been denied the perfect Spalding and District Pool League season – by their club mates.

The Division B leaders had reeled off a flawless 16 wins from as many games, but were handed a shock 6-3 reverse by Drayman’s B.

It was all square at 3-3, but doubles wins from Jon Barnett and Steve Smith, Tony Branch and Vince Webster and Colin Russell and Mick Dolton guided the B team to a superb success.

With tonight being the final game of the season, second-placed Fenway/SHC kept themselves in the hunt for the title.

They crushed Robin Hood B 8-1, with Martin Perkins seven-balling R Andrew in the singles, leaving themselves two points behind the champions elect.

Fenway now need Drayman’s A to lose against Abbey C and must beat Lincoln Arms B.

In the top flight, Golden Lion have long since sealed the title. But at the wrong end of the standings, there is still all to play for.

Lake Ross did their hopes of survival the power of good with a potentially pivotal 5-4 triumph at Fenway B.

S Rowbottom and M Pallett clinched the victory – leaving Fisherman’s B and Abbey B in trouble.
