THE final round of group matches in this season's Bob McCartin Cup took place this week and the quarter finalists have now emerged.
PJ'z No 1 of Ripley confirmed their position as top dogs in Group A with a crushing 6-1 win at the Edgefold Club of Matlock, avenging a recent 4-1 league defeat to the same opposition while at the same time showing them the trap door in this competition.

Also through are Jaxx Q Club No 1 of Belper who overcame the No 2 team from PJ'z 5-2. Steve Robinson was in fine form for the victors, winning his singles frame and both of his doubles games too.

Group B winners Belper Strutt Club No 1 finished off their qualifying campaign in fine style, overwhelming Jaxx Q Club No 2 6-1 with Steve Bullock compiling the week's highest break of 30 in the process.

Joining them are both Bolehill Institute No 1 and Belper Strutt Club No 2, the latter outfit doing just enough to qualify despite a 4-3 reverse in the match between the pair. Stewart Jackson and Fred Doran secured the vital frame in the doubles thanks to a great pot by Stewart on the pink.

It was left to the pairing of Ian Birks and Guy Shirley thereafter to clinch a success for the home team in the decider.

Group C also saw three teams qualify for the next stage. Bolehill Institute No 2 entertained Matlock Golf Club with both teams pretty much secure beforehand and the visitors' 4-3 success means they top the table by virtue of games won.

Dwayne Martin's frame with Charlie Hodgkinson was probably the best of the night, with Dwayne knocking in a 21 break only to be thwarted by Charlie's contribution of 25 at the death.

Chris Parker and Nick Kay took the deciding doubles match to continue the Golf Club's unbeaten run in all competitions.

The Matlock Club defeated Bolehill Institute No 3 5-2 to book their place too. Captain Keith Manlove top scored with 62 points.

Bob McCartin 6-red Cup team event: Group A: Edgefold Club Matlock 1, PJ'z Club Ripley No 1 6; Jaxx Q Club Belper No 1 5, PJ'z Club Ripley No 2 2.
Group B: Bolehill Inst No 1 4, Belper Strutt Club No 2 3; Belper Strutt Club No 1 6, Jaxx Q Club Belper No 2 1. Group C: Matlock Club 5, Bolehill Inst No 3 2; Bolehill Inst No 2 3, Matlock Golf Club 4.
Focus now turns back to the league for the next few weeks.
