Players Lounge No.1 confirmed their title in the Premiership in fine style with a maximum 5-0 win against Alpine No.1.

It puts them 17 points clear of second placed Steelers Sports Bar No.1, who did not have a match this week, with only ten more points available.

Corner Pocket, who won 4-1 at Darnall Victory Club, are a point behind Steelers from a match less but they still do not have enough left to win.

The other championship confirmed was in D division where the top two teams played each other.

Leaders Colley WMC needed to win to take the title with two weeks to spare and although it went to the last frame they came out 3-2 on top against Club Baize, who take the runners up spot.

The other four continue undecided. In A division Alpine No.2 beat Carlton SC No.1 4-1 to go six points in front of second-placed Laycocks Sports Club who won 3-2 against Wortley Club.

If Laycocks can get a couple of points back in the next round then the two teams meet in the final match when everything will be possible.

Firth Park WMC’s 3-2 win at Woodseats WMC leaves them wanting just two points from the remaining ten to take the title in B division. The two teams nearest to them, Carlton SC No.2 and Allied Snooker Club No.3, did themselves no favours, both losing, Carlton 4-1 to Thrybergh Club and Allied 3-2 to Lees Hall. They are now tied in second place nine points adrift of the top.

Allied Snooker Club No.1 allowed the two closest chasing sides to pull a point back on them in C division, but still look comfortable with a six point lead.

They lost 3-2 to Spot On No.1 one, who are one of the sides closest to them, while the other, Saxon Hotel, won 3-2 at Steelers Sports Bar No.2.

Only a single point separates the top two sides in E division, Stocksbridge Legionnaires having the advantage over Steelers Sports Bar No.6. Both won 3-2 this week, over Spot On No.3 and Hartley House SC No.2 respectively to remain like that, but the Stocksbridge side have a match in hand.

Despite having the title in the bag Spot On No.2 continued their winning ways in F division. The score was, unusually, 3-1 as one of opponents Hillsborough Club’s team was injured and although he turned up found it too painful to play.

The highest break of the week came from Brett Miller with an 85 for Corner Pocket in their 4-1 win mentioned above. Other good breaks came from Danny Riley with 50, Ant Ahmad 48, Jason Oldham 47, Glenn Riley 43, Steve Hallowes 40, Graham Royle, Darren Smith and James Perry all with 39, Chris Butcher 33, Steve Dransfield 32, Andy Marsh 31 and Matt Elliott 30.
