Percy Arms move top of Super-League

THE Blyth Valley Pool Association, sponsored by Union Private Hire & Goschen Street Garage, saw the top 2 teams playing each other.

Percy Arms and the Joiners were involved in the best quality match of the season.

In a game littered with clearances and whitewashes, Percy dominated and roundly deserved their 9-3 victory over the previously unbeaten Joiners.

Every player for Percy was a star, however, man of the match went to the Percy captain Kevin Mcgarry with two eight-ball clearances in the singles and a tremendous double on the black in the last frame.

The victory moves Percy to the top of the Super-League for the first time this season.

Joiners are now in second place on the same points, but their head to head result keeps them behind Percy.

With the top two playing each other, Bedlington Station closed the gap with an impressive 8-4 win against fourth placed Comrades B. Star man for Station was Scott Jack with three wins.

Comrades A took their opportunity to move into fourth place with a solid 9-3 victory over Newsham Side Club.

Annitsford Irish and Cramlington Village went with the form book, with Irish completing a comfortable 10-2 win. Man of the match for Irish was Chris Gill with a hat-trick of wins.

The two Seahorse teams came out on top in their games with Sun Inn teams,.

Seahorse A took a 12-0 win over Sun Inn B, but it was a lot tighter in the other match with Seahorse B coming out 8-4 winners over Sun Inn B. Seahorse B pair Alan Erridge and Richard Glass were the stars of the show with three wins each.

In the bottom half of the league, Brockwell Seam recorded their third win of the season with an impressive 10-2 win over Dudley WMC. Man of the match was Wayne Cameron for Brockwell on his comeback appearance.

The last match of the week was also the most competitive with Joiners B and Seaton Terrace going all the way to a sudden death play-off for the bonus point.

Leading 5-2, Terrace looked to be coasting to the win only for Joiners to take four frames on the bounce. But Terrace fought back to make the score 6-6.

Terrace talisman Gary Dennis won the decider and helped maintain their seventh place in the league.
