League newcomers The Hedingham top the table after the third round of matches in the Sudbury and District League Handicap Cup.
The new boys, who finished just one place off the bottom of the league, have won all three of their cup games. Their latest success was a 4-1 victory at S Club 47 helped by two wins from Chris Hillman in the first and last frames of the match. S Club’s only win came courtesy of Martin Maxim.
Holders Sible Hedingham sit just one point behind their club rivals after they also made it three wins out of three with a 4-1 home win over Lavenham Legion A. The scoreline was harsh on the visitors however, as they lost two black ball games and a third on a respotted black.
Earls Colne A made light work of their visitors’ handicaps as they raced into a three frame lead over Sudbury SC B. The visitors won the final two frames of the match courtesy of Sid Levitt and Bob Adams.
Lavenham Legion B and Long Melford Working Men’s C went into their match both looking for their first win of the competition. The visitors looked favourite to gain that win after they went into a two one lead, but wins by Mike Hazell and Dave Mortier in the final two frames over Ray Fradley turned the match in the home team’s favour.
