TEESSIDE ROUND UP
Middlesbrough Friendly League
Fifteen year-old Danny Beagrie set a new League record as the youngest
player to record a century break in Division C of the League. Playing
for the Dormans Club he made a run of 102 in his 120-up game during
their fixture at North Ormesby Workmen’s Club.

Darren Kell. Receiving 80 points, Hall managed to win 200-130 on the
ex-CIU Champion’s home table at the Ironopolis Club.
