A cue is like an extension to your arm for many players. Some people keep their's for years while others replace them every 6 months. How long have you owned your current cue?

Flyers do double over Pickwick

Bellegrove Flyers were the only team to inflict a defeat on Pickwick in the first half of the South London & Kent Pool Alliance summer season and they've gone on to do the same in the second half.

Top of Tier Two East, Pickwick were looking for revenge and it was an interesting match, on a table that rolled more than a pair of roller skates.

The first two sets were won, 3-2 with both teams taking one, so it was all to play for in the final set.

Paul Dawson put Flyers, 6-5 ahead against his old team but Paul Gafa levelled for Pickwick, however that was the only frame they took in the set, with Flyers winning it, 4-1 for an overall, 2-1 & 9-6 victory.

Dawson was joined by Keith Mitchell, Graham Lamb and Luke Chantler on two frame wins, with Lamb and Chantler both unbeaten.

Paul Gafa and Paul Slater were the pick of the Pickwick players, both winning two of their three frames.

Flyers jump into third place just five points behind their opponents, who are still top but only by three points now, after North Heath Social Club recorded a massive win this week.

The visitors were Foots Cray Social Club and there was a few tight frames mixed with some good clearances for both sides but North Heath took all three sets, 4-1 for a comprehensive, 3-0 & 12-3 triumph.

There were unbeaten hat-tricks for Ian Stringer, Brett Crawley and Ryan Sullivan.

Foots Cray drop to the bottom after Rose Inn have a disastrous week, losing to previous bottom team, CSC Mr's & Miss Q's.

Rose Inn arrived with just three players, which meant they went down by 3 sets to 0 and 11 frames to 4 and dropped to fifth as a result.

Saying that CSC didn't have it all their own way, only taking the first set, 3-2 but the greater numbers paid dividends in the last two sets, winning them both, 4-1.

Dean Greaney-Parr and Neil Mundy did their best to keep Rose Inn in the match by winning their team's four frames, taking two each.

Luke Mathews and Tony Lees both won all three of their frames, however both had walkovers among their wins but Mim Cunningsworth played and won both of his frames.

Falconwood Club A leapfrog Rose Inn into fourth, despite losing, 2-1 & 8-7 to Eltham Terrace Rack Pack.

Tony Frost was the Inspiration behind the victory, winning all three of his frames which included a break and dish.

Unusually all games in SLKPA Tier Two West were won by 10 frames to 5 but there was differing set scores.

Eltham Terrace Nuthouse stay top after a, 3-0 & 10-5 victory over near rivals, Crayford Social Club Rugrats.

Nuthouse didn't have it easy though, as they only won the first two sets by the odd frame, 3-2 but they took the last set, 4-1 to make the victory more convincing.

Steve Gibson and Adam Hewson kept Rugrats in the game by winning two of their three frames, as did Dave Sparey and Jon Syta for Nuthouse but Craig Jones and Shane O'Reilly went one better with three frame wins.

Nuthouse extend their lead at the top to two points, as Sharks could only manage a, 2-1 & 10-5 victory against Hustlers B, who are just behind them in third.

The first set was pretty close, with Hustlers taking a, 2-1 lead but Sharks took the last two frames of the set to edge it, 3-2.

They went on to whitewash the second set, making it seven on the bounce to secure the match and bonus point by the end of the second set.

Hustlers stopped the rot in the eleventh and twelfth frames and went on to win the set, 3-2 to earn a vital point and stay in touch with their opponents.

Arif Salih won both of his frames for the victors but Captain, Kevin Dempsey went one better with an unbeaten hat-trick.

Fox & Hounds earned an important victory in their bottom of the table clash with Academicals.

Fox made the most of Academicals only having four players by taking the first set, 4-1 and the next two, 3-2 for an overall, 3-0 & 10-5 triumph.

Dean Williams and Kevin England did their best to keep the score respectable for Academicals by winning two of their three frames.

Neil Shelton and Glen Ward were unbeaten for Fox, both scoring a brace but Alan Dolan went one better, winning all three of his frames.

This victory lifts Fox above their opponents into sixth, with a three point cushion.

One point behind Academicals, at the bottom of the table are Happy Hustlers, who lost their ninth match of the season this week, against Bellegrove A.

Bellegrove are known for their sluggish starts but they put that behind them this week and won the first set, 3-2 however, they lost the second set by the same score and the match was level again at one set all and five frames all.

Then, for the second week in a row Bellegrove whitewashed a set and won the match, 2-1 & 10-5.

Steve Redout, Sirhat Bulbul and Pat Melia all won two of their three frames but Captain, Steve Hughes led from the front, winning all three of his frames.

Bellegrove are now ten points ahead of Fox & Hounds below them, as well as being ten points behind Nuthouse at the top.

It's all change at the top of SLKPA's Elite League, after Eltham Terrace Club A secured a victory against top of the table, Falconwood.

Eltham took the first set, 3-2 helped by a break and dish from Dave Rawlinson but Falconwood fought back and won the second set, 4-1.

Terrace started the better in the last set, with Dan Heinink and Rawlinson taking the first two frames but Tony Halpin brought one back before Dan Foley won his third frame of the night to secure the set and the match for Terrace.

All that was left was for Terrace skipper Ron Brown and Clive Black to battle it out for the bonus point, which Brown edged to give his side the, 2-1 & 8-7 triumph.

Terrace go into third, four points behind Falconwood, who drop to second after Hotshots beat Falcons to join Falconwood on 28 points but Hotshots go top having won one more set.

Falcons arrived with only four players but Hotshots were showing no mercy, taking the first set, 4-1 and they went on to win the first four frames of the next set to wrap up the win and the bonus point with an unassailable, 8-1 lead.

Falcons prevented the whitewash then took the first frame of the last set to make it, 8-3 but Hotshots rattled off the next three frames to win the set and maximum points before Tony Gear won the last frame for Falcons to make the final score, 3-0 & 11-4.

Andre Cox and Tony Wilson won two of their three frames but Richard Chapman and Connor Hewson were unbeaten, winning two and three frames respectively.

Eltham Terrace Rovers are fourth and remain eight points ahead of their opponents, Falconwood Club, after they shared the points, with Falconwood winning, 2-1 in sets but Rovers won more frames, 8-7.

The bottom two battled it out this week, as Bellegrove Social Club played hosts to Royal Oak.

Bellegrove edged the first and third sets, narrowly winning them, 3-2 but they did the damage in the second set, taking it, 4-1 for an overall, 3-0 & 10-5 triumph.

Royal Oak Captain, Paul Clements won two of his three frames, as did Steve Knight, Steve Pearce and Martin Hession for Bellegrove but Dave Jandu went one better with an unbeaten hat-trick.

Having won only one match all season, this result seals Royal Oak's fate and they will be relegated to Tier Two for the next summer season.
