Snooker: Century star Jamie Green chalks-up new record
THE Grimsby & District Snooker League is currently celebrating its centenary season – so it is perhaps fitting that the list of century breaks just keeps on growing.
This week the Singles League provided another three-figure break – and also a new record.
Playing in the Premier Section, Webbonet's Jamie Green knocked in a 105 break.
It means that Green has now scored a century in each of the last three matches in which he has played.

On January 28 he made 106 against TR Carpets. On the February 4 he didn't play, but on the 11th, he racked up a 112 break against West End C.
This week's 105 means that, for the first time ever, a player has scored three centuries in successive matches.
Green's break came at Cue World against Richard Smith of Willows Sea Foods as he helped his team, Webbonet, to a 7-1 victory.
