Singles league

A superb display of break building has fired Jamie Moore to the top of the Premier Division table. Breaks of 64,55 and 53 sealed the points for Moore before Neil Elliott bagged a consolation final frame. He’s joined at the top of the table by Stewart Crosswell who fought back from two down to pick up a valuable point against the defending champion.  Nav Hussain had started brightly and managed breaks of 45 and 35 in the second frame to put himself on the brink of victory before Crosswell responded to remain unbeaten so far this season.  Lee Crombie then went one better by beating Hussain 3-1 in a re-arranged match and picking up a point against Zeb Ahmed to move himself up the table.  In the 1st Division Malc Belshaw enjoyed an impressive 3-1 victory over Danny Castel-Nuovo to remain top of the pile.  Man of the moment Shaun Parkinson enjoyed a resounding 4-0 victory over Steve Coleman to move into 2nd place whilst last seasons runner-up Mike Langdon is finally off the mark having dispatched high flying Toby Irons by the same score-line.  In the other match Wayne Bilbie picked up his first win of the season against James Booth, which included an excellent 46 break.  The top of the table clash in the 2nd division between Paul Bell and Rob Wallace ended up all square, as did the ‘Oakleigh Lodge Derby’ between Adam Robinson and Steve Roe.  Clint Broome came from behind to win the last frame against Sean Croft and remains just 1 point behind the leader. Jordan Parnham was the only victor last week with an impressive 4-0 rout against Daniel Norton, which moves him up several places into 2nd spot.   


Singles Championship

Pegasus Snooker Club’s Chris Brooks was in imperious form in his first round Singles Championship match against fellow team-mate, Danny Castel-Nuovo.  Brooks, the 2008 champion,  made a 64 break in the opening frame before making a superb total clearance of 100 in the next.  Castel-Nuovo who had hardly any table time did put up a fight in the 3rd frame but it was Brooks that sealed his place in the next round with a 30 something break.  In the other matches, Shaun Parkinson took the scalp of Lee Crombie, running out a 3-1 away winner. Handicap Singles Giant Killer, Adam Robinson could not repeat his heroics in this competition going down 3-0 to Beeston’s Clint I’Anson.  BCI’s Jamie Moore was too strong on the night for Notts Amateur Champion Keith Holgate by winning without reply whilst Nottingham University’s Alex Smith won by the same scoreline against Daniel Norton.  The talented Stewart Crosswell knocked in a brilliant 82 break in his 3-1 win against Robin Hicks whilst Stadium’s Daniel Do Folco made a 46 break but ended up on the wrong end of a 3-1 score-line against Wayne Martin.  There was better news for his team-mate Bob Walker who enjoyed a good win against Arnold Malc Belshaw whilst in an all Pegasus tie James Booth won a close match against Eric Towle to book his place in the 2nd round.


Handicap Singles Knockout

Stewart Crosswell dumped last season’s runner-up Barry Stark out of this year’s competition at the first hurdle.  The match which to be honest was a fairly scrappy encounter was won 2-0 by Crosswell who is based at Spot-On Sneinton.  The other big match in the 1st round was an encounter between Chris Winter and Clint I’Anson, which was won 2-0 by I’Anson.  Oakleigh Lodge’s Brendan Murtagh had an excellent win over Zeb Ahmed whilst James Notman came through a tricky looking away tie 2-1 against Beeston’s Kaleem Ashraf.  Andy Spicer won by the same score-line against Paul Bell as did Alan Cunningham who enjoyed an excellent away win over League Secretary Steve Butler.  Ash Goring won the opening frame of his match against Wayne Bilbie on the black before racing away in the 2nd frame for an impressive result whilst Arnold’s John Fountain was in good touch against Phoenix’s Steve Howard knocking in a 44 break in his 2-0 win.  Two of the tournament favourites Wayne Martin and Jamie Moore both came through their matches unscathed, as did Jonathan Mason who saw of fellow club-mate Wong Yip 2-0.  Robin Hicks won the all University match 2-1 against Ben Macintosh whilst Lee Crombie had to dig deep against Dale Prime clearing up from the brown to win the match 2-1.  BCI’s Neil Elliott had no problems against Daniel Norton and Geoff Merry of Mapperley had a good 2-0 win against Lenton’s Adam Goodall.


Handicap Pairs Knockout

Oakleigh Lodge’s pairing of Steve Roe and Jason Turner came from behind to see off Nav Hussain & Zeb Ahmed from Pegasus.  By all accounts the match was a bit of a classic with Hussain making a decent 39 break in the opening frame before seeing the dangerous Turner make a 25 clearance to level the match.  The Oakleigh pair then booked their place in the next round with Turner scoring well in the final frame.  My tip to win this years competition are Beeston’s pairing of Clint I’Anson & Anthony McMahan as I think they have the perfect balance of flare and safety to do well*.  They were certainly tested down at Sherwood against Brendan Murtagh and Anthony Scarborough but came through winning 2-1.  Last season’s runners-up Matt Savage & Adam Goodall are once again up and running after winning away from home against Andy Orange & Steve Booth.  Danny Castel-Nuovo and James Booth came from behind to beat City Hospitals partnership of Jordan Parnham & Sean Croft whilst there was a good win for Phoenix’s Stephen lally and Gaz Birks against the dangerous Jamie Mathers and Martin Betterson.  A partnership that always seems to be in and around the finals is Barry Stark and Ray Brooks and they ran out comfortable winners aginst Toby Irons & Shaun Parkinson at BCI.

*Apologies to Clint & Ant for jinxing them in the next round   :laugh:

Just a reminder that all the 2nd round matches are now on the NHSL website, all matches to be played by Sunday January 10th.
