We arrive at the Christmas break in The T. R. Carpets Grimsby Snooker League Doubles to find that new team West End A are topping the Premier Section. Now bearing in mind the other team’s games in hand, this may change soon. However, this week, the WestEnders entertained current champions Dads and Lads at Manor Avenue and went behind as Keith Tomlinson and Abs Momin won the opening two frames for the Dads. Daz Stanfield and Alan Porritt pulled one back for home team but Matty Lawton and Simon Bensley won the next for the visitors to put them 3-1 up. They couldn’t add to that though, as Andy Aisthorpe and Martyn Shaw won the last two frames for the home team to earn them a share of the spoils.

Cue World Comets were at bottom team Clee Bowls C where they went three behind as Geoff Ford and John Pickard won 2-0 and Mick Chew and Gordon Dawson won their first frame. The Comets fought back, however, as a single from Martin Dowling and Brad Burrell, and a 2-0 from Terry Haigh and Michael Dent saw them to a 3-3 draw.

A 2-0 from Tom Keeley and Mick Vincent, and singles from Tony Forster, Paul Rudkin, Dan Webster and Rob Willerton gave Clee Cons A a 4-2 at Blossom Way. Winning a frame each for the home side were Albert Potterton, Dave Robinson. John Lough and Daz Edwards. “Lucky Loughy” topped the break list with a nice visit of 48.

We start this week’s report with two items of news that all league members need to be aware of.

Firstly, owing to changes at the Grimsby Telegraph, for the time being at least, they will no longer be publishing the Grimsby and District Snooker and Billiard League reports as they have in the past.  

Secondly, owing to ill health, our League Secretary, Jim Litchfield, has resigned from the Grimsby and District Snooker and Billiard League with immediate effect.


It’s tight in Section A as only seven points separate the top six teams. Leading the way are Carr Lane A who put four past second placed Hainton B when John Baker and Vic Adams won the last two frames for them. Earlier, Denis Commons, Jeff Brown, Mel Pratt and Daz Braithwaite shared with Dave Tanner, Sean Bartlett, George Clark and Tony Lamberton.

Birds Eye Granddads went down 4-2 at Healing Legion as Drew Winship and Dave Peterson won 2-0 and Gerry Howes, Dave Hallberg, Nigel Barr and Paul Stringer shared with the Eye’s Roy Dickson, Gordon Coulling, John Tomlinson and Mick Boyington.

West End B came unstuck big time at Standard A as they lost  5-1. Unfortunately, we have no details of the match.

Rich Maultby and Keith Pearson won the first two frames for Cromwell B against bottom team Clee Bowls B but that was their lot as Steve Kavanagh, Mike Barrett, Dave Walton and Mick Parker won all the rest for the Bowlers in a 4-2 victory.
