Round 1 Results
Steve Butler 3-0 Steve Richards
Richards paid his first ever visit to Butler’s house and played much better than the scoreline would suggest. Butler had all the running and this had a big impact on the result. On another night Richards could easily have left the winner.
Dave Jobling 3-1 Wayne Martin
Jobling’s relatively new set-up was described as ‘awesome’ by first time visitor Martin. Martin also described Jobling’s play as ‘suberb’, saying his long potting was ‘to die for’ and his safety was like ‘trying to escape from Alcatraz’. Jobling is certainly going to be a tough man to beat in this league if his terrific recent form continues.
Keith Holgate 3-0 Steve Whitt
Holgate opened his account with a solid home win against Whitt. The visitor never really got going, which is a common problem for guests in Holgate’s amazing snooker room. Holgate is a seasoned campaigner and opponents will find wins hard to come by, that’s for sure.
