The curtain came down on The T. R. Carpets Grimsby Snooker League Singles this week with the last matches played in Section C. Beertrix Trotters finished as champions with a 27-point margin against nearest rivals D.L. & Son following a 6-2 victory at Crommy Cats. Ash Kelk and Simon Lidgard were their 2-0 winners with Neil Sutton and Danny Reynolds sharing against home players Lewis Fenwick and Chris Peasgood.
D.L.’s were a frame away from a slam as Dave Johnson, Dave Jones and Bob Barnes all won 2-0 and Geoff Ford won his first frame. In the end, a battling performance from Mick Bird saved the whitewash for Cromwell B.
Cue World Comets are in third spot after a 5-3 win at Westlands A. Unfortunately, we have no score-sheet but we understand that Craig Foster and John Parr won two each for the visitors and Terry Haigh scored a single.
In fourth place are Ray Edmonds B who ended their campaign rather disappointingly, losing 6-2 at home against Doo Darrs. Roger Hunter and Michael Dent won the 2-0’s for the Darrs with Kyle Jennings and Marco Frezwell sharing against Keith Fountain and Tony Pearce.
Clee Bowls Y beat Cabbies 5-3 when Dave Richardson and Martin Dowling both won two and Garry White shared with Geoff Brown. The Taxi-men’s 2-0 winner was Steve Singleton.
Ryan Knox won 2-0 for Clee Cons C but Phil Madin did the same for Birds Eye A as the teams drew four-apiece.
A 2-0 from Dave Burton gave Nats A the advantage against Rays Rockaz but they couldn’t hang on for the win as a 2-0 from Matt Jones levelled the scores.
Another 4-4 draw came at Pelham Printers where a 2-0 from Jubilee Rangers’ Jam McKeon was cancelled out by a 2-0 from Wayne Bramley.
And finally, Cromwell Car Care put seven past Chalk It Up when Mike Clark, Pete Keeble and Clive Brummitt all won two and Phil Neild shared with slam-saver John Rice.
