Bulwell ‘B’ Bestow Battering

Bulwell ‘B’ Bestow Battering

Monday Team League (Summer 2023)

Bulwell Church Institute ‘B’ are the new leaders of the nottinghamsnooker.com team league, dishing out a superb 5-0 whitewash away to Academy A in Sneinton.

Mark Morrisey and Shaun Kilkie won a singles frame apiece before joining forces to take the pairs, sealing the match for the Vere Street side with two frames to spare.  Steve Purser added a fourth, with Paul Wainwright Snr snatching the final frame on the black ball to complete the rout.

Winter 2022-2023 season Tuesday league winners Towers hosted the Monday league title holders Lenton Liberal Club in what was a champion-versus-champion match.  The Mansfield natives made good use of home soil, taking both of the opening singles by over 30 points each.

Towers found themselves 35 points behind with 35 on the table in the pairs frame and came agonisingly close to forcing a respotted black, only to wobble a tough long pink with an easy black awaiting.  Captain Jon Shapland knocked in a long pink of his own to allay Lenton’s nerves.

Shapland would go on to made a 30 break in adding the final frame, but it was nothing more than a consolation for the Osmaston Street side as a resounding 75-1 scoreline had already earned Lea Bradshaw his second win of the night and Towers the five bonus points.

The 3-2 victory brings the Botany Avenue side level on points with Lenton, with Towers ahead by virtue of the head-to-head result.  Both trail BCI B by seven points, all three having played four matches.  Bulwell Church Institute’s “AJ” team were on the bye this week but only drop one place to a share of fourth, a point further back with a game in hand on the top three.

Tying BCI AJ with an identical record are Spot On Hucknall, who were 3-2 home victors over Carlton & District Liberal Club.  Patrick Ashurst recorded 117 points in taking the opening frame for the Vine Terrace side, Wayne Martin later securing the match in the fourth frame.  Carlton’s two frame points are enough to keep them one clear of the two Academy teams in the league table.

Spot On Hucknall’s Patrick Ashurst became the second player to record over 100 points in a frame this season

The final match of the evening saw another home success, The Venue (Rainworth) getting the better of Academy Reds by the odd frame in five.  Andy Wain and captain Don Merry had won a singles apiece and combined for the pairs to end the match as a contest after three frames, however.

The Newark Street side remain bottom, although they do have a game in hand on the two teams nearest to them in the league table, while The Venue climb to sixth place with only a point separating them from the tie for fourth.

The league now pauses for the spring bank holiday next week, before matches resume in earnest on 5 June and then proceed uninterrupted until the summer bank holiday at the end of August.
