Alan_McLeod (2).jpgWorkington Golf Club maintained their top spot in the Window Outlet Cockermouth and District Snooker League Division One this week with a 4-2 victory over fellow divisional opponents Flimby Social.

On home turf it was Flimby captain, Geoff Banton, who got his team off to the ideal start with a fluent victory over Bryan Walker. This win however was countered in quick fashion as with breaks of 28, 47 and 26 from Mark Brasted, Rob Sim and Phil Sorfleet respectively the golfers moved into a 3-1 lead.

Giving his team some hope Flimby’s Shane Evitts took care of frame five with a superb win over Mark Cowen but it was Ian Fulton who sewed up the match victory as he defeated Social’s Sal Cakmak.

Due to circumstances outside the control of the league Division One’s John Street Club A have relocated to Station Road Club and are now known as Station Road B.  This change in venue however seemed to bring the best out in the Station B side as with their best performance of the season so far they defeated Division Two’s Senhouse Street Club 6-0.

Contributions of 34 and 33 from Peter O’Hagan and Mark Tunstall took care of frames two and three but it was teammate Alan McLeod who not only made the highest break of the week but the highest break of the season so far with a magnificent contribution of 72 to take the Station B lads 5-0 up. Alan is pictured in action,.

The final frame of the night was a much scrappier affair but with determination it was Station B captain Stephen O’Hagan who took the sixth and last frame to galvanise the match win.

Workington Cons inflicted a first defeat of the season on lower divisional opponents Maryport Social with a 5-1 home win. The highlight of the match came in frame two as Cons’ Richard McCarthy made a break of 35 in his win over Craig Stuart. 

Replicating the fine form he showed in last week’s Seven-a-side TKO Station Road A captain Mark Robertson produced a match best break of 31 but his inspiration could not stop his team from sinking to a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Seaton Legion.

Division One’s John Street B took full advantage of their home fixture with a 6-0 win over Aspatria’s Division Two outfit, Sun Inn. The most notable contribution of the evening came from Sun Inn’s Ben Irving with a break of 22 even though he fell foul to a Neil Henderson defeat.

Winning the last two frames of their home fixture Maryport Labour pulled a 3-3 draw out of the bag in the all-Division Two clash against Keswick’s Derwent Club.

Workington Legion and United Club both had no fixture.
