Will Bedstead stay in league?

THERE are concerns a second team could drop out of the HUCKNALL EPA POOL LEAGUE just eight games into the new season.

Spot-On (Bulwell) resigned in the second week and now Hucknall side Flying Bedstead are in a state of turmoil.

For the second week in succession the wooden spoon candidates failed to raise a side, leaving Little John to claim an 8-0 walkover.

It is not clear whether they have a captain — or even any players!

There was more administrative trouble as Harrier beat Yew Tree 5-3 but immiediately lost the points after failing to submit a match card.

In stark contrast, former champs Spot-On Low C took advantage of a week off for leaders Royal British Legion B to draw level on points.

For they Beat Station B 5-3 with wins for Scott Oxford, Dean Britton and Simon Thompson on singles and the teams of Britton and Ryan Norris and Lee Carrington and Colin Draycott on pairs.

In third place are Royal British Legion A, who enjoyed a routine 7-1 vctory at Bestwood Village Social Club with wins on singles for Rich Devine, Tim McShane, Nige Burton, Tom Burton and Glynn Devine and the teams of Mark Williams and Martin Bremner and Devine and Nidge Orton on pairs.

Elsewhere, the derby clash between Green Dragon and The Dragon finished 5-3 in the favour of The Dragon, while despite being deadlocked at 2-2 at one stage, The Chequers surged ahead to beat Liberal 5-3.
