NOBODY has more points in the early Spalding and District Snooker League standings than Holbeach B.

The Division Three leaders have taken an impressive 11 points from an available 12 after two games, with Crowland B their latest victims.

Wins from Don Hibbins (scr), Reg Walmsley (scr), Phil Coaten (scr) and Barry Haynes (R7) helped secure a 5-1 win.

They are a point clear of Tulips B in the embryonic third tier standings. The Spalding side saw off Services A 5-1 to move onto ten points, with Karen Howlitt (R21), Mike Small (R14), Tanya Peel (R7) and Gary Coomes (R7) reeling off the victories.

Elsewhere in Division Three, Jason Needham’s (O49) 24 break was the best on offer.

His Bourne SC A side lost 4-2 to Tulips C, though.

Donington A lead the way in Division One, as their 5-1 triumph at Pyramid A moved them onto nine points.

But the highlights in the top tier came from Neil Reynolds and Wayne Howard.

Long Sutton B’s Howard (O7) starred with a 44 break as his side dispatched Services C 4-2, while Donington C ace Reynolds (O49) trousered a cool 40 in a 4-2 home success over Crowland C.

Meanwhile, three teams boast a return of nine points in the second tier. Holbeach D, Holbeach C and Consti I all made it two wins out of two.

Holbeach D cruised past Consti F 5-1 with Donald Monk (R7) pocketing a 21 break, while Holbeach C edged out Consti B 4-2 in a game that saw Norman Miller (R7) score 24.

Consti I beat Boundary A 5-1, with a 22 clearance from David Twelves (R14) the highlight.

In Division Four, Consti A and Donington B are level-pegging. Consti beat Bourne SC B 4-2, despite Karen Corr’s (O35) 25 break.
