Peaker’s clean sweep
Sixteen year-old Matthew Peaker won his third title of the season in
the Sunday School Billiards League when he won the May Gray Cup.
In the final, Peaker swept to a convincing 200-135 win over Roger
Singleton (New North Road) despite conceding a 50 points handicap.
Peaker had already collected two team titles as he helped Linthwaite
Methodists to a League and Singleton Cup double, also posting the
highest break of the season (76). He had additionally been a member of
the Netherton Conservative team that lifted the Huddersfield Open
Billiards League crown.
