MOBBERLEY A closed in on another Knutsford and District Snooker League Division One title after becoming only the sixth team to amass more than 500 points in a league match.

Mark Newall and Tony Crompton both posted three-figure totals as they side put 508 points on the board in a whitewash of Wilmslow Cons B.

The champions’ winning margin of 370 points is the fourth-best in competition history.

Elsewhere Alderley Edge won at Shaw Heath and Brook Street A ended a brilliant quarter with an aggregate success at Mobberley B.

Mobberley D kick-started their promotion push in Division Two when they brushed aside back-markers Mere C.

Mere A’s slender victory on aggregate at Brook Street B leaves them a single point better off than their rivals in the table.

Leaders Tatton recorded a routine win at home to Mere D.


Week 21, Division One: Mobberley B 3-4 Brook St A; Mobberley C 1-6 Wilmslow Cons A; Shaw Heath 2-5 Alderley Union; Wilmslow Cons B 0-7 Mobberley A.

Division Two: Brook St B 3-4 Mere A; Mere C 2-5 Mobberley D; Tatton 5-2 Mere B. No game: Wilmslow RBL.

Meanwhile, there are new names on the Knutsford and District Amateur League’s roll of honour following the Bert Astles Memorial Pairs final at Mere.

Shaw Heath duo Jamie Way and Dave Mullins edged out Bruce Tulley and Mark Newall, from Mobberley, to take the title for the first time.

It means they become numbers 146 and 147 on a list of players to have prevailed in a knockout competition during the league’s 67-year history.

Way and Mullins ended the run of pairs specialists Gary Long and Bob Jones (Brook Street) in the semi-finals.

The withdrawal of father and son tandem Mark and Laughlan Anderson meant Tulley and Newall had a bye into the showpiece.


Semi-finals (handicap in brackets): Gary Long & Bob Jones (Brook St) (10) 0-2 Jamie Way & Dave Mullins (Shaw Heath) (13); Mark Newall & Bruce Tulley (Mobberley) (scr) w/o Laughlan & Mark Anderson (Wilmslow Cons).

Final: Way & Mullins 2-1 Newall & Tulley.
