After an untimely but inevitable recess, the T & M Motors Snooker League saw rivalries resume this week (with social distancing measures) and Alfreton Palmer Morewood took full advantage of their game in hand with a maximum points haul narrowing the gap between themselves and leaders Matlock Golf Club to just four points with four games to play.

Rob Muxlow's 31 break was as good as it got for opponents Edgefold Club who were hosts for the evening but with John Smith replying in similar vein with a run of 26, he still couldnt get his team onto the scoreboard.

By then Alfreton had taken full control as Tom Broughton, Des Smith and Andy Haggarty all showed no signs of rustiness and the two Smiths put the icing on the cake with a concluding doubles success.

In another match brought forward, Crich No 1 defeated Crich No 2 3-2 to earn local bragging rights with Nick Berry (runs of 23 and 20) and their very own John Smith (22 break) securing the win after Cliff Gould's opener set them on their way.

Ady Lowe took both his frames for the vanquished, latterly partnered by Dale Shaw in the doubles.
