Lavenham Legion B are the new champions of the Sudbury and District Snooker League.

They went into their final game last week at S Club 47 needing just two frames to secure the league and, after wins by Dale Gridley and Glen Avey in the first two frames, the Legion had secured the league.

They went on to complete a 5-0 win, although Dave 
Mortier was pushed all the way in the final frame by Chris Coates, who lost by just one point.

Meanwhile, the highlight of the week came at Lavenham Legion, where the club’s A side played host to Earls Colne A.

After Dave Stuart had put the visitors ahead with yet another win, Luke Heard proceeded to knock in a wonderfully constructed 75 break in his whitewash of opponent John Goodchild.

The 75 break means Heard shares the season’s high break prize with Lavenham’s Jon Wright.

After Mark Harris had put Earls Colne A three up, Paul Garrard restored some respectability for the Legion by winning frames four and five against Matt Warnack and Mark Harris respectively.

Earls Colne B secured runners-up spot after trouncing Long Melford Working Mens C 9-1 in a double-header match held at Earls Colne.

Sudbury Snooker Club A finished their season in style with a 5- 0 win at Sible Hedingham in a match that saw three frames decided on the final black.

This caps a bad season for the hosts who, for the second season running, have finished bottom of the league.

Tonight sees the new Pot Luck Pairs Competition at Sudbury Snooker Club and all players entered are reminded that the competition will begin at 7.45pm.
