With only three matches to go the situation becomes less rather than more clear for the top teams in the Sheffield Snooker League.

In the top division long time leaders and defending champions Players Lounge No 1, moved back in to the favourite’s spot.

They beat Darnall Victory Club, who were level with them, 3-2 to go in front of them by that point. However, it was not enough for them to move in to top place as Steelers won 3-2 against Dronfield Contact No.1 to take that spot by a single point but they have played a match more than the Players. Last week’s leaders Cueball Four did not have a match.

Season-long C Division leaders Saxon Hotel won again but their substantial lead has been chipped away by the chasing teams. This week Malin Bridge beat Firth Park WMC No.2 4-1 to put them just two behind Saxon.

Steelers No 2 are new D Division leaders, beating St Marys No.1 3-2 while Broomgrove Club No.2 went down 4-1to Club Baize No.1. However Steelers have played two more matches than Broomgrove.
