Darley Dale & District

AFTER a week of inactivity, PJ’z No 1 of Ripley surged back to the head of affairs in A Division with a resounding 5-0 win at Bolehill Institute No 3.

Ben Monk edged out Ian Cresswell on the final black in the opening frame but after that there were no further alarms as the visitors carved out a two-point cushion at the top of the table.

Martyn Taylor was again amongst the breaks in Edgefold Club’s 4-1 win over Belper Strutt Club No 2 with contributions of 36, 28 and 20 in the same frame.

In the other game, Matlock Golf Club got back to winning ways bolstered by the return to the side of Chris Parker, who had breaks of 32 and 24 whilst Graham Jones top scored with 94pts.

Opponents Matlock Club were 3-0 down before Keith Manlove won both his singles and doubles matches to reduce the arrears to the minimum margin, but still enough for the home side to go back to the top of B Division.

There were also several noteworthy breaks in the individual competitions, the best of which were 83 and 40 from Ben Monk and Steve Bullock’s 43.
