Bath Billiards League

It was the Weston Club’s turn to host the pre-season challenge match
between Weston and Wincanton. The six-man teams contested games
of one-hour duration on the Club’s two tables. An additional test for
the players being that one of these tables was seven-eighths scale. On
this occasion it was the home team who emerged victorious by a 4-2
margin, winning all three matches on the undersize table. The highest
break came from Wincanton’s Jack Masters who produced a 67 in a
narrow 219-200 win over D. Stephenson. The players enjoyed an
after-match buffet at the Old Crown Inn.
