ROB DICKEN started and finished in style for EDGEFOLD No 2
THE tightest encounters of this weeks Joinery Joint Snooker League fixtures involved teams from the Amber Valley culminating in contrasting fortunes for those involved.
Alfreton Palmer Morewood No 2, fresh from a maximum points haul the previous week travelled to Edgefold No 2 and twice levelled through Ryan Taylor and John Smith after reigning player of the year Rob Dicken (run of 21) and comeback king Tim Douglas had registered for the hosts.
And it was the home teams same winning pairing that just edged a tight doubles contest to record their second successive victory.

Alfreton No 1 came from 2-0 down as they entertained Matlock Golf Club with Graham Jones and Ian McKay (on the black) continuing their good recent form for the visitors.
High drama followed as father and son Kevin and Jamie Rowland each potted re-spotted blacks to level proceedings and then Jamie partnered veteran potter Ralph Edgson to a century points haul showcase in the concluding doubles.

Bolehill Institute No 1 drew level on points with Edgefold No 1 at the top after a 4-1 home win with Ricki Slack making breaks of 44 and 29 whilst the reliable Andy Russell registered for the vanquished.

And Belper Strutt Club opened their league account for the season, taking the first three frames against Matlock Club with Mark Newby (25 break) top scoring before Keith Manlove secured both frames he contested on the black (latterly in the doubles with Paul Holmes).
