Snooker: Cons hot shots march on towards title glory
TABLE-topping Clee Cons B conquered their club-mates to further bolster their Roy Ling Mutual Grimsby Snooker Doubles League title drive.
The Cons moved 15 points clear at the Premier Section summit after a 4-2 victory against their A team.
The match was a chance for the second-placed A team to eat into Cons' lead, but it wasn't to be.
Brian Bridge and Craig Waddingham easily won the first two frames to get the B team off the mark before Lewis Singleton, Jon Steel, Steve Donner and Mike Bridge were held by Rob Willerton, Chris Farrow, Craig Thomas and Damon Gresham.
