Notts Arena have already lost more games in Worksop Snooker League Division One than they did in the whole of last season.

This week’s defeat came against club rivals Notts Arena C, writes Antony Coupe.

Alan Emmingham opened the scoring for the C team before Karl Creswick doubled the lead.

Ricky Morris responded for the champions but Phil Clarke sealed victory for the C team to leave the 2013/2014 champions bottom after six matches played.

In contrast the excellent start made by Breakers X continued with another win over Langold Pocket to see them sit two points clear at the top.

Dinnington C remain unbeaten following a 2-2 draw with Warsop Ex-servicemen’s, while Stanley G and Bassetlaw C’s match also ended in a stalemate.

Elsewhere Warsop WMC climbed up into joint second with Dinnington C after a 4-0 home win over Clipstone.

Terry Wilkinson, Harry Brocklehurst, Terry Dowson and P. Dillon were the winning quartet in four tight games.

Other victories saw Wayne Race, S. Withan and Jason Tompkin of Breakers S defeat Welbeck B 3-1, with W. Webster gaining the only consolation for Welbeck in the final frame.

The final result in Division One saw Welbeck A win their third match of the season against Grove Mill.
