The Green Room made it the winning room when they lifted the John Smiths Star Cup, the Sheffield League’s original and most sought after trophy.

The E division winners triumphed over B Division winnners Sheffield Transpfort No,1. at Holme Lea.

In a close encounter. Rhys Athey put the Green Room 1-0 up but Martin Gallagher and Julian Bell reversed the situation, putting Transport 2-1 in front.

Martin Griffin brought things level before Paul Athey took green to pink to take the final frame and the Star Cup back to the Green Room.

At Allied Snooker Centre. Hustlers No.1 won a closely fought Bentley Cup final, the competition where the scores are added up rather than just the frames, beating Carlton SC No.2.

David Birley opened up a 41 point lead for Hustlers. Martin Finnigan added 13 to that. Ian Lake pulled nine back for Carlton leaving Carlton’s last player Kevin Breeze 45 points to catch up.

He made a brave effort and Stewart Swindell had to pot the last pink to give Hustlers the trophy.

It was Laycocks Sports No.1, runners up in C Division who took the cup beating D Division third placed Stocksbridge C&I by three frames to one at Hustlers.
