This was followed by a much tighter affair at the Number Nine B. John Evens 83-63(31) and Cyril Evans 69-55 were both pegged back by John Sharland 57-39 and T.Thorn 53-31 before Ray Sturman snatched the decider 56-47.

Number Nine B drop to second despite Dave McCarthy 77-7 Russell Frame 83-54, T.Thorn 54-32 and John Sharland 50-47 winning all four frames against the Police B with the eight players in attendance for this fixture.

Third, are the Number Nine A, as they relegated their Police B opponents to the foot of the table as Iain Callander 66-26, Dion Newcombe 81-65, T.Parker 71-55 and Dan Brown 76-49 dropped only the second frame to Frank Kelsey 74-13.

Members will be saddened to learn of the death of Pete Gibson, a keen student of the game and a stalwart of the Police Social Club B, after losing his battle with illness.
