Adam and Martin take early South Wilts lead

THE joint leaders in the Cuestars South Wilts Snooker League have dropped just one frame apiece after the second week’s action at Salisbury Snooker Club.

Adam Guyatt (Salisbury) compiled a 45 break in the third frame of his 5-0 win against Ally Pollard (Alderholt, near Fordingbridge).

And Martin Hill (Durrington), who rejoined the league last season after a five-year break, accounted for Richard Arnold (Salisbury) 4-1 in a “scrappy match”

“I was pleased with four frames as it could have easily been a 3-2 result either way,” he said.

Elsewhere, James Bolton (Amesbury) leads the race for the highest placed under-21 player after picking up his first win of the season against Paul Burt (Britford).

Speaking after the 3-2 victory, the 19-year-old said: “It was a difficult match for both players as neither of us really got going.

“It was just a few key balls that were the difference.”

And defending champion John Hunter (Andover) saw off 14-year-old Callum McDonald (Bishopdown) 5-0.
