THIS week saw co leaders at the top of proceedings of Division One of the Ormskirk & District Amateur Snooker League. Maghull RBL A, who led after the opening week, remain as one of the top three after a hard fought 4-2 triumph over Maghull RBL B in the Maghull 'Derby' match.
Last seasons runners-up, Crosby Village SC move up to joint pace-setters after another solid performance, this week, they recorded a second successive 5-1 victory at the expense of Upholland Social.
The other team to lie joint top of the league table is Stanley Club A who continued their impressive start after a very disappointing campaign last year, they end their evening’s work with a 6-0 away demolition of St Cuthberts A.
Rainford ESC A move up into fourth place after a fine 6-0 whitewash of Upholland Conservative.
Scarisbrick NSC also move in the right direction and now sit in fifth spot after a 3-3 stalemate with Skelmersdale Wardens A to keep their unbeaten start to the season, the Skelmersdale Wardens outfit lie in sixth after a second consecutive draw. The other match in the top flight saw Farmers Club get their campaign under way after sitting out the first week, they recorded a 3-3 draw with Aughton Institute A.
This week saw last season’s champions, Les Dodd SC, sit out their free week. Amazingly, there were no breaks over 30 this week so no Break of the Week accolade can be awarded.
The Division One merit table saw new leaders this week as Scarisbrick NSC hit top spot with 61 points, they lead by a single point. Farmers Club also move up a place to second as they sit on 60 points. First week pace-setters, Upholland Conservative drop into third place on 60 points. The second week updated table can be found below.
Unfortunately the Second Division has been reduced to only seven teams after the sad withdrawal of St Cuthberts B, this means that the first week’s result is void and all their fixtures now becomes a free date for each of the remaining teams. Skelmersdale Wardens B continue at the summit of the Division with a 3-3 stalemate with Stanley Club B, this outcome sees them hold a single point advantage.
