CROSBY VILLAGE SC have now opened up a six point lead at the head of proceedings in the top division of the Ormskirk & District Amateur Snooker League.
They completed their second 6-0 whitewash of the campaign, this time at the expense of Stanley Club A. The Crosby side has now taken 17 points from a maximum 18 available in their last three matches and even at this early stage this looks like title-winning form.

This time, Paul engineered an excellent break of 53 in his frame success.
Meanwhile, Maghull RBL A moved back into third place after a 5-1 victory over club compatriots, Maghull RBL B in the Maghull ‘derby’ match. This match saw Maghull RBL A player Chris Jones in superb form as he compiled fine breaks of 46 and 34 in his win.
