The Premiership champions, Players Lounge No.1, finished the season in some style. They beat last season’s champions Steelers Sports Bar No.1 4-1 to finish twenty points in front of them at the top, exactly a reverse of last season. Not only that, it robbed Steelers of the runners up spot, as although Corner Pocket lost by the same score to Steelers No.5 side to leave Corner and Steelers level on points, the Corner team have won more matches, the decider in case of a tie on points.
They were not the only champion side finishing stylishly. In B division champions Alpine No.2 beat second side Laycocks Sports Club by a maximum 5-0 to take them ten points clear and avoid any chance of a count back of matches won being needed.
The top two in B division also went head to head, although the title had already been won by Firth Park WMC. Second placed Carlton SC No.2 did win 3-2 though, enough to keep their runners up spot.
Allied Snooker Club No.1 had already won C division but there was a dogfight behind them for the places behind them. Steelers No.2 took on the champions from fifth place and beat them 3-2. Second placed Spot On No.1 entertained Saxon Hotel who were a point behind them and lost 3-2 to leave them level on points. However, Spot On retained their second place again due to matches won and Saxon took third. Allied Snooker Club No.2 played Manpower starting a point in front of the aforementioned Steelers No.2 but lost 3-2 to make them level but Steelers topped them due to matches won. The outcome is that Allied No.2 finished a single point behind runners up Spot On No.1 but are fifth, in the bottom half of the table.
No such complications in D division where Colley WMC, who beat Hartley House SC No.2 3-2, had taken the title by eight points from Club Baize, who were already sure of second and beat St Marys No.2 by three frames to two. However, Colley’s result was important as Earl Old Boys beat Allied No.4 4-1 to hop over Hartley House in to third, although still a distant 17 points adrift of Baize.
The top two teams had already been settled in E division, although the champions Stocksbridge Legionnaires went down 3-2 at St Marys No.2 and runners up Steelers Sports Bar No.6 did not have a match. It left Hartley House SC No.2’s 3-2 win over Spot On No.3 sufficient to hang on to third place, as Allied No.5 won by the same score over Steelers Plaza to remain a point short.
In F division the top three places were already set, although champions Spot On No.2 did not ease off as they beat British Legion 4-1, having won the title three weeks ago. Second placed Sheffield Transport lost 3-2 to Hillsborough Club and Sheffield Deaf did not have a match in third.
The top divisional winners now go in to the John Smith’s Star Cup draw, the oldest and original league trophy, for the champion of champions. The second and third placed team play for the David Herriot trophy.
The highest break of the week was made by Tony Tasker with a 55 for Cueball Four in their 3-2 win over Wortley Club. Other good breaks were made by Joe Priest with 52, Danny Riley 48, Jason Evans, Will Lemons and Martin Lawrence all with 47, Sam Thistlewhite 42, Roger Baines 40, Tom Broadhurst 39 and Chris Walker and David Birley 32. It leaves Ashley Cartys 124 for Players Lounge No.1 the highest of the league season. He also made the only other century in the league, a 122.
