ALFRETON REMAIN HOT ON THE HEELS OF LEADING PAIR

ANDREW HAGGARTY put ALFRETON back in charge
ALFRETON PALMER MOREWOOD's hard-fought 3-2 win at Crich Comrades No 2 sees them still well in contention for the T & M Motors Snooker League, four points off top spot after Matlock Golf Club's 5-0 scoreline saw them take peak position outright.
Des Smith secured the Amber Valley men into an early advantage with a 66-39 verdict before reserve Nick Berry equalised for the home team.
Captain Andrew Haggarty edged Alfreton back ahead with a 62-36 success and John Smith made the game safe before Ady Lowe and Berry reduced the deficit to the minimum margin in the concluding doubles leg.

The Golfers were in rampant form as Ian McKay (30), Les Mooney (26) and Graham Jones (25) were all amongst the breaks whilst Tony Blant did his bit in both singles and doubles.

Comeback of the week saw Whitworth's final pairing Geoff Brailsford and Mick Ferguson take pink and blank to snatch a 3-2 win over Edgefold, in the process overturning an excellent run of 42 from Sean Dobney in the same deciding frame. Dobney and James Travis had put the Matlock men 2-0 ahead early doors.

Bolehill No 2 also came from 2-0 down to defeat Bolehill No 1 by the minimum margin with Kevin Munnelly and Keith Robertson each edging black ball deciders before teaming up to good effect in the doubles.
Colin Marchington and Ricki Slack were in winning form for the vanquished.

Belper Strutt Club are in second place following a 3-2 win over Matlock Club. Keith Manlove and Paul Holmes twice had the visitors in front but Steve Bullock and Wayne Shooter won each of the frames they contested to tip the balance.
