Several new players have made promising starts recently.

Gaywood Cons’ Gerry Rudley recorded a nice score in his first game, but still lost to a high scoring Ryan Jackson who helped his Narborough side to a 2-0 defeat of Gaywood.

Another newcomer, Mick Cooper for West Acre A, played a great game to defeat Mark Tims, having breaks of 37, 44 and 44 and scoring 291 points. Teammate Phill Welham also found Gaywood’s table to his liking scoring a season’s best score of 595 points to help Acre A to a 2-0 away win.

Both Dereham Cons sides still lead the way.

Mat Duncalf made a welcome return for Downham Ex-Servicemans, but could not make it a winning start losing to Alex Ward during West Acre B and Downham’s 1-1 draw, James Rix won his game to pull back the point for the visitors.

Highest break: Phill Welham (West Acre A) 157.

Nathan Mann of Norwich recorded the highest break of 100 exactly.
