Cheveley Road B finished with a flourish in the Newmarket Snooker and Billiards League with a 5-0 whitewash of Mildenhall as they finished runners-up to Cambridge, who sat out with a final round bye.

Paul Jefferies recorded a 51-24 win over Mildenhall captain Richard Lyes with Tom Parry winning the billiards on his first appearance of the season and Darren Halfpenny securing the win (62-30).

Stevie Kerr, playing his very last league game before moving to the Lake District, signed off in style hitting 30s and 40s at ease to make up his 75 handicap in a 175-16 win, while Dan Stoodley completed the whitewash (56-43).

Soham SC beat Chevely RBL 3-2 with a decided one-way traffic as a ruthless Colin Johnson took full advantage of Ian Spinks’ slow start to win the game and match 60-10.

The hosts had taken the lead through Dale Jeffrey.

New Astley’s Ryes Evans switched to snooker this week but sadly it did not change his losing streak as the Cheveley Road A captain Paul Sharpe beat him 50-11 in a 4-1 win for the Cheveley visitors.

The Billiards Cup final was due to take place at Cheveley Royal British Legion last night between team-mates Stevie Kerr and Jason Browes, while the League Cup final see Cheveley Road A and B go head-to-head at Cheveley Road Club on April 15.

The Snooker Singles final follows on April 22 between Johnny Mutch and Steve Debenham and the Bobby Jones final and presentation night, both at the same venue, will be held at Cheveley Royal British Legion on April 29.
