Jim Millward 10,420 - 6,310* Nigel Senior Nigel missed his one up on just over 6k, Jim got the balls back straight away and touched on just over 10k to take the win. 1-0
Grant Tully 3,100* - 12,100 Gareth Lloyd Grant unfortunate to get a huge kick on his second break shot with the balls ending up nowhere near the holes, Gareth got them back straight away and made a very solid 9.8k break to level the game and both had another break after that. 1-1
Geoff Jukes 8,120 - 6,910* Ian Lelliott One visit each with Geoff taking advantage of Ian leaving his one up short and playing the table out in a high quality game. 2-1
Dave Ingram 17,690* - 20 Chris Reeves A very scrappy 10k opener from me gave Chris no chance. 3-1
Stuart Mepham 13,330 - 2,630* Marcus Chipman Marcus off fairly early, Chocie made a good 8k break, Marcus balls back and missed while chasing leaving Stuart to add some more. 4-1
A very unexpected scoreline but with 4 games won against the break and the home team took their chances.
Lovely hot sausages and roast potatoes that were quickly demolished on a cold evening.

Henry with brilliant first leg, 7k before Kev unfortunate to whip his 50/20 out then H a faultless 13k. Dave and TJ both off early when having the break, Dave made sure. Joe struggled with split, Tupps missed early when he got them back, good break second time to win it. Colin pegged early, I was going well to 4k then missed straight fifty. Made sure with second break. Decider not good for the heart, 0-0 after 12 minutes with a black peg each, Mick decisive 2.5k break, Rick ran out of time.
Well played the Hollingbury, good night with plenty of banter. We just couldn't find the third leg for the win.
