IN the final round of Spalding and District Snooker League fixtures of the year, Sean Swinburn delivered a real Christmas cracker of a break.
The Long Sutton A maestro, playing off an O42 handicap, reeled off a stunning 93 against Crowland C, which was a fitting finale to another super year of action.
Unfortunately for Swinburn, his heroics couldn’t prevent Crowland from picking up a 4-2 away success, with Rob Childs (O63) making a 24 break in the process.
BSC A’s Darren Woodberry (O28) also signed off in style. He pocketed a smart 45 break to help sink Holbeach A 4-2.
Also scoring well in the top flight was Bren Bowman (O63). The Tulips A ace bagged a 40 break to guide his side to a 4-2 home victory over Crowland D.
Perhaps the biggest fixture of the week took place in Division Two, as Boundary A replaced Long Sutton D at the top of the standings.
A 20 break from Jim McGhee (R7) helped the Deepings side to a 5-1 home win.
Holbeach D were the big winners, though. They whitewashed four-player Whittlesey A 6-0 and are now just two points off top spot.
Elsewhere, Boundary C romped to a 6-0 success at second-placed Crowland A.
Mick Walker (O21) trousered a 20 break as the hosts missed the chance to take over at the summit.
Graeme Sawyer (O7) was another on solid form as Whittlesey C beat Consti E 4-2. He made a cool 21 break.
In Division Four, Whittlesey D stormed to the top with a thumping 5-1 triumph at Consti D. Michael Foster (scr) led the charge with a 22 break.
Hot on their heels are Long Sutton C, who were 4-2 winners over Consti A. Gav Shinkin (R14), Dan Mayfield (O14) and David Lefley (scr) got the frame wins.
Donington B are level with Sutton too, having beaten Donington D 4-2.
