Frame 1 was a very scrappy afair both players in a wicked safety battle, which ended with Shaun coming out on top.
Frame 2 was my opening with a 42 break and soon after went on to make a clearance but with a tricky long tough black it ended with a 34 break. a cracking performance for me.
Frames 3 & 4 Where ver scrappy with both players shareing the last two.
Thanks for a cracking match Shaun , you think i should of won, but i think it was a fair result.

Frame 1, Jason settled better than me and had a few bits of luck, (which we all get). That was 1 nil to Jason. Frame 2, Found myself behind early on but a good clearance on the colours with a doubled black gave me the frame. 1-1. Frame 3, i had a little 25 break and put the presure on with a few telling shots and Jason was still stunned i'd stole the second, 2-1 to me. Frame 4, I was well beaten in this 1 as Jason had a 30 and a 37, some great "round of applause" shots in his breaks to keep them going. 2-2. I think a fair result overall and good to see a player with a great cue action who attacks and has good safety. Cheers Jason, waiting for our next match.
Frames 1 and 2
de javu both games craig clearing up the colours to take a 2-0 lead.
Both players had good chances but Craig was by far the better player and won the frame easily.
By far the best frame, some solid safety from both players, until I let Craig in with 7 reds left. What followed, I can describe as one of the best clearances I've seen for ages, especially the 2 pinks to keep the break going. A brill 76 break top man Craig enjoyed the night, all the best for your 1st season in nottm snooker. Can't wait for my hand to mend. You reds.
A huge congratulations to 14 year old Joe Reynolds who has reached the final of the English Under 14 Snooker Championship.

Congratulations to Mansfield's Lee Spick who is one of 12 players who have earned a 2 year professional main tour spot thanks to qualification at the Q School. He defeated Duane Jones 4-2 in the final round of event 3.
Ashley Carty, who is coached by Darren Presgrave at North Notts Community Arena and who also plays in the Worksop Snooker League, narrowly missed out, going down 4-3 to Fraser Patrick in the final round of event 3.

There's never been a better time to turn professional thanks to Barry Hearn's revolution and we wish them all the best of luck!

For some time now there has been discussion about starting up a Nottinghamshire County ‘B’ Team, to enable those players who do not play in the big Derbyshire V’s Nottinghamshire match an opportunity to play for their county.
It is with great pleasure that I can tell you that this thought has now been turned into a reality.
With the help of Steve Butler and Jimmy Gratton, we have managed to organise a Nottinghamshire ‘B’ V’s Derbyshire ‘B’ County match.
Steve Butler was unable to carry the project further than the organising stage but he did suggest that Steve Burrows becomes the captain for the Nottinghamshire team and Steve then very kindly asked me (Glenn Price) if I would be vice-captain.
Steve and I met with Jimmy Gratton and the Derbyshire Captain Danny Copper last night to run over some of the rules of the day, and to enable us to have a look around the venue (Cueball derby).
We have managed to sort out the format for the day and to have a look around the fantastic venue, the venue itself will be perfect for such an event.
Please be aware this is going to be an on-going project and the aim of it is to try and give as many people as possible the opportunity to play for their county (outside of the big Nottinghamshire V’s Derbyshire matches organised by Wayne Martin).
Both the Nottinghamshire and the Derbyshire ‘B’ Teams and been picked and all the details for the day are as follows:
Derbyshire v Nottinghamshire

Good game lads, welldone on the win. Goodluck for rest of season.
1st frame Cary knocked in 24 break i managed to take all the colors for a tie but then he stole the frame with a great pot in the corner bag.
2nd frame i managed to keep ahead and take the frame
3rd frame Cary went in off 3 times in 1 frame which did not help i just kept potting small breaks and trying to keep it safe that worked in my favor and took the frame.
4th frame was much the same Cary was getting a bad run and went in off 2 times and even i was amazed at his bad luck but consistent safety and potting from me won me the frame.
Thanks for the game Cary.
I started off well in the 1st frame, taking it with a few good teen breaks.
The 2nd was pretty scrappy but I think Julian kept his head a bit better and took a small lead to take the frame.
I was VERY happy to win the next as I kept a reasonable lead throughout but almost threw it away by giving 2 free balls, going in off etc.
The last frame was a bit odd as we both had MASSIVE chances early on with the reds scattered but we both kept missing and sent everything to the cushions. This led to a pretty grim tactical battle, both potting single reds mostly. I think I just kept my nose in front to eventually leave Julian needing a snooker which he couldn't manage in the end.
Glad with a win after losing my first 2 matches. Hard luck Julian, I'm sure you'll give me a tougher time on your home turf!
Dave Salmon 0-2 Zeb Ahmed
Shaun Parkinson 0-2 Sean Coxon
