Otterton A were unable to fulfil their away fixture in the Exmouth Snooker League at the Number Nine B as their village was surrounded with flood water.

The remaining three matches could be played and East Budleigh A opened up a commanding lead in the table with a 5-0 trouncing of the Number Nine A.

Paul Milford 76-32, Graham Ward 64-35, Dave Hawkins 44-34 and Mark Auton 56-33 welcomed the return of former Open champion, Alan Farrant (61-48), following his two seasons absence with a frustrating injury.

Another defeat for the Police Social Club A saw them drop four points off the pace. George Webster 66-56 and Mark Rock 90-46 had them level with Neil Chudley 66-35 and Phil Rowsell 70-58 of the Police B, before Frank Kelsey 69-37 won the decider.

East Budleigh C remain third despite losing at the Police C.

They won only the last two frames through Paul Hayman 78-39 and Barry Bentley 47-37.

Steve Spinner 52-14, John Parrott 63-40 and Eric James 62-55 lifted the Police C up to fourth place with this success, their third match win.
