Snooker: Heneage triumph is Icing on cake
ICING Cabin are the new leaders of the Express Appliances Intermediate Snooker League after they beat defending champions Hainton B at Heneage Road.
While Jamie Barrett and Lewis Singleton were winning their opening frame on one table, it was the same story for Tony Aisthorpe and veteran captain Steve Singleton on the other to give Cabin a dream start. Butch Reynolds and Chris Fuller pulled one back for the champions, but Aisthorpe and Singleton took their second frame to preserve a two-frame cushion for the visitors.
Scott Gibbons (50) and Jon Steel then took the fourth frame to seal a great win before they added the last for a great result. The 5-1 win sees newly-promoted Icing Cabin go two points clear at the top.
Sitting just behind are Locate Supplies, who found themselves 4-0 up against Carr Lane Social A. Ian Crosby, Steve Fisher, Nige Emmerson and Daryll Pidd won their frames whilst Derek Crosby and Joe Goodfellow responded for the Railwaymen.
