IAN'S RETURN REAPS REWARDS FOR MATLOCK CLUB

THE quarter finals of the Bob McCartin Six Red Cup took place this week and the tightest match of the round saw the Matlock Club gain a 4-3 win at Belper Strutt Club No 1.
Ian Rose was the man of the moment, making a triumphant return to action by winning all three frames he was involved in, firstly his own singles and then the doubles partnered by Paul Holmes and Keith Manlove respectively.

Wayne Shooter and Mark Newby had earlier given the home side a 2-1 lead, with Paul Holmes' victory in-between those frames keeping the visitors in contention.

The Matlock Club's semi final opponents will now be the Strutt Club's No 2 team who emerged from the all-Belper clash with Jaxx Q Club No 1 with a 5-2 win.

David Devenport, a recruit from the local pool scene, continued his impressive form on the bigger table as he won his singles and both his doubles matches, in which he and Dave Needham had a combined break of 22 to boot.

Steve Buckley also won his singles and doubles matches, the first in dramatic style as Kevin Holmes potted the black only to see the cue ball drift in off to concede the frame.

PJ'z No 1 of Ripley defeated Bolehill Institute No 2 for the second week running, both in cup competitions, this time by a 4-1 scoreline.

Dwayne Martin got the home side off to a flyer with a black ball verdict over Andrew Gratton but Ben Monk, helped by a 34 break, restored parity in the next and from thereon they never looked back, winning the next three frames to settle the issue.

It was a similar tale for Bolehill No 1 as Ricki Slack, with a 25 break, got his troops up and running against Matlock Golf Club but the visitors dominated the rest of the encounter and ran through the next four frames to progress to meet the Ripley team in the other semi. Graham Jones won both his singles and doubles matches on the night.

There was also a re-arranged league fixture which saw the Edgefold Club defeat Bolehill No 3 3-2 with Martyn Taylor notching breaks of 39 and 31 in the same frame. The following night Martyn continued in the same vein in the pairs handicap competition, when partnered by Mick Lane, he compiled impressive breaks of 62 and 34 to book their place in the next round.

Bob McCartin Six-Red Cup Quarter Final results: Belper Strutt Club No 1 3, Matlock Club 4; Belper Strutt Club No 2 5, Jaxx Q Club Belper No 1 2; Bolehill Institute No 1 1, Matlock Golf Club 4; Bolehill Institute No 2 1, PJ'z Club Ripley No 1 4.
