Twins snooker.jpgThe Window Outlet Cockermouth and District Snooker League is again tainted with sadness as it mourns the death of one of its own.

Just months after saying goodbye to Workington Legion stalwart and former chairman Eric McMullen the league was utterly shocked to hear the passing of Eric’s son Daniel in such tragic circumstances.

Only last week Daniel was part of the Workington Legion side who took on fellow townies the Vets Club.

Daniel was a popular lad with a cheeky side and the league has been flooded with tributes for the sadly departed 29 year old.

The league and all associated with it would like to send out our heartfelt condolences to Daniel’s family and to let them know that Daniel’s memory will never be forgotten.

In this week’s matches Division One leaders Workington Cons went down 4-2 to second placed Station Road B. The home win sees Station B close the gap on Cons to just two points.

Cons Richard McCarthy produced the only recordable contribution of the match with a break of 30 in his victory over Peter O’Hagan.

Division Two’s United Club showed little sign of a Xmas hangover and continued in their recent run of excellent results with another win, this time 5-1 over Division One opponents Station Road A.

A superb home win was highlighted with a break of 30 by captain Andrew Mitchelhill in his fifth frame victory over Peter Collins. The United Club stay third in Division Two and Station Road A drop to last place in Division One.

Workington Golf Club kept their third place in Division One with a 4-2 win over fellow top tier opponents Maryport Social.

The Golf Club’s Rob Sim led the way with a break of 37 in the first frame to take out Ryan Ismay. Other golf Club victories came from Bryan Walker, Phil Sorfleet and Mark Brasted with Paul Lister and Andrew Henderson winning the last two to put some respectability in the scoreline for the Social side. Maryport stay fourth in Division One.

Seaton Legion made the most of their home advantage as they won 4-2 against Division Two’s Sun Inn. The Seaton outfit produced some solid performances to move from the bottom of the Division One table into fifth. Aspatria’s Sun Inn remain bottom of Division Two.

Finally, the fixture between Workington Legion and the Veterans Club ended in a 6-0 victory for the Vets with Kevin Basnett top scoring on the night with a contribution of 75 in his win against Shane Brewer. Vets move to the top of Division Two with the Legion now sitting in last place.
