THE third week of the league season saw Marehay Miners Welfare continue their merry way at the top of A Division with a 4-1 home success over Matlock Golf Club.
Ben Monk led the way with breaks of  39,28,26,24 and 22 and Lee Whatton's black ball win in frame three ensured the victory before Graham Jones earned the sole point for the visitors.

Gladiators Social Club have also made a promising start to the campaign and this continued with a 5-0 win over Matlock Club as Troy Brett with runs of 27,24 and 22 emerged victorious from both his singles and doubles matches.

Another team going well are Belper Strutt Club No 2, for whom Adam Winson notched a century points haul and Chris Stubbs knocked in a 24 break in a 4-1 success over Bolehill Institute No 2. Only Ian Peacock with a couple of contributions of 20 could stem the tide for the hosts.

The all-Belper derby went the way of Jaxx Q Club courtesy of a 3-2 triumph at Strutt Club No 1 thanks in part to Kevin Holmes who notched a run of 25 whilst winning both frames he was involved in including the decisive doubles match at the end. Mark Newby earlier top scored for the hosts.

And in the remaining game, Matlock's Edgefold Club also took the spoils by the minimum margin as captain Neil Parkinson top scored against visitors Bolehill Institute No 1, for whom Ricki Slack's efforts of 29 and 24 weren't quite enough to tip the scales on the night.
