Paul Metcalf fires home a super century break in Grimsby Snooker League
HOT potter Paul Metcalf made a memorable clearance of 106 in the Premier Section of the Roy Ling Mutual Grimsby Snooker Singles League.
Playing for Webbonet at Metshine Westlands, Metcalf, who was paired against Pete Smith, had won his first frame before knocking in his top ton in the second.
With 21 points already on the scoreboard, Metcalf quickly calculated what was needed to make the century – and duly obliged when clearing up.
This performance inspired his team-mates as Jamie Green, with breaks of 74 and 62, Gary Challis, with 51 and 47, and Nige Emmerson (41) won all the rest of the frames in an 8-0 victory.
Clee Cons A were made to struggle at West End C when Martyn Shaw won both his frames for the home team, and Dave Powell shared with Steve Donner.
In the end, 2-0s from Jamie Barrett and Gary Skipworth saw them to a 5-3 win.
Ray Edmonds A hit Willows Sea Foods for six as Chris Sutton and John Ashford-Smith both won two and Alan Edmonds and Jamie Richardson shared with Jack Stinson and Mike Rouse.
A repeat of this score came at Blossom Way B when Lee Blanchard, Daz Evans and Paul Smith all won 2-0 for Inspirations Fireplaces in reply to a 2-0 from the Blossoms Albert Potterton.
A 2-0 from Stuart Carrington (77 and 76) was cancelled out with a 2-0 from Scott Templeman as TR Carpets came back to draw 4-4 with Cue World.
A single from Alan Brown against Craig Taylor and a 2-0 from Daz Potter put Ray Edmonds Enigmas 3-1 up at home against Don Noble Bookmakers. They couldn't add to that however, as Ian Sadler and Mark Stevens won the last four frames for the Bookies to give them a 5-3 victory.
West End A beat a three man MJ Decorators 7-1 when Alan Phillips and Craig Rowbotham both won two and Steve Wright shared with Mick Forward.
Ian Hogarth won both his frames for Clee Bowls X, but Tim Brown did the same for Cambridge H as the teams drew 4-4.
The pacesetters in Section A showed their class, as both top teams won 6-2.
The first of two important clashes came at Clee Bowls Police, where Pete Mitchell and Steve Austwick both won 2-0 for Steve Austwick Garden Services. Lee Staveley and Cameron Dunlop then shared with Shaun Cook and Roger Lockwood.
Nats A's 6-2 victory came at TR Carpets A when Steve Austin and John Ilbrey both won two games and Dave Roe and Mark Ilbrey shared with Alan Burns and Kev North.
