    This time around saw the two outstanding matches contested the evening before the penultimate round of matches on the normal scheduled night in the First Division of the Ormskirk & District Amateur Snooker League.

    Firstly, Defending Champions
    and Champions elect, Fleetwood Hesketh SSC went into battle with close rivals, Aughton Institute E and after a close, tense match it saw the Southport outfit prevail with a 4-2 triumph to put themselves on the verge on more glory and a huge chance of clinching a remarkable and majestic seventh consecutive Division One league title. This outcome saw them increase their advantage to a very healthy five points with just two matches remaining of the current campaign, the Aughton E lads, despite defeat, moved into joint third position in the league table.

    The other match to take place on the Monday evening saw title-chasing, Olympic BC B take on Lathom & Burscough RBL and at the end of the evening it saw an excellent 5-1 home success for the Walton-based Olympic BC B boys. This result saw the Olympic B side moved up into second place in the league standings were they sit those five points adrift of the leaders, the Lathom & Burscough RBL team continue in fifth slot The match also saw Lathom & Burscough's Mick Mullane in fine form with a really nice break of 40 in his frame victory.

    Fleetwood Hesketh SSC went into their match with Rainford X SSC knowing that a positive result could see them through to yet more glory and that's how it certainly worked out as its massive congratulations to the Fleetwood Hesketh team as they made it a sensational seven successive league titles made even more impressive as they have achieved this with one match remaining. They recorded a superb 6-0 away demolition of their opponents to win the crown in total style and I cannot emphasise the magnitude of their achievements and how far can this amazing run continue? This outcome sees them lie a huge eight points clear at the top of the league table with that final match left to play. The season certainly isn't ending soon for them too as they contest a Le Rose Cup semi-final match in the coming weeks in their quest for a fantastic 'Double' now the league title is secure.

    Olympic BC B came up against Aughton Institute A this particular week in their chase for their maiden First Division title and at the end of the encounter it saw a disappointing conclusion for the Olympic BC B lads as the Aughton A side produced an excellent performance to engineer a 4-2 win. This result sees the Walton-based, Olympic B side drop into third place in the standings whilst the Aughton Institute A boys move up to a season's best fifth spot in the league proceedings.

    Aughton Institute E continue to have an excellent campaign despite two close reversals in their last two matches against title-chasing teams. This time they clashed with Olympic BC A and after a very solid performance they ended the contest with a terrific 6-0 demolition of the Olympic A side. This outcome sees them move up into second position in the league table were they lie a single point clear of the team directly below them and they have a good chance of finishing as runners-up this term.

    Red Lion Social Club A are the other team in the mix for the runners-up spot and they gave themselves a good chance of achieving that excellent feat with a 4-2 home success at the expense of Upholland Social. This result, despite their win but with those two other matches taking place on Monday, saw them drop into fourth slot but they sit just two points behind the side sitting in second in the league proceedings so it's definitely all to play for going into that final league game.

    The other match played this week had huge significance attached to it as it's many congratulations to Red Lion Social Club B as they clinched the Division One Merit League crown with a 4-2 away triumph over Scarisbrick NSC. This outcome sees them lie seven points clear of their nearest rival with that one match remaining so it's mathematically impossible for them to be caught even though this week saw them complete their league campaign.Other notable break this week was – P Williams (Olympic BC B) 32.

    The Division One Merit League saw Red Lion Social Club B lift the title this week after their excellent final match win. They lie a very healthy seven points clear of their nearest rival and although their winning margin is undecided they cannot be mathematically caught and finished on 107 points, a very big well done to them! Continuing in second position are Scarisbrick NSC who despite defeat this time around still have a chance of the runners-up spot, they sit on 100 points. Lathom & Burscough RBL despite defeat on Monday evening and having their free week this particular week now occupy third spot solely, they find themselves on 98 points. With the final round of matches left there are five teams who could possibly grab the runners-up place so it's all to play for in an exciting finale.

    Division 2

    St Cuthberts remain on firm course towards lifting the Division Two crown after yet another win this particular week. They went into battle with Skelmersdale Wardens B and ended their evening with a hard fought 4-2 away triumph, their sixteenth win of the current campaign, to remain at the summit of the league table. The Halsall-based outfit found themselves 2-0 down early in the contest as the Skelmersdale B lads were very quick off the mark but showed their class by taking the final four frames of the match to seal a very important win. This result sees them maintain their very healthy five point advantage and with just two matches are in an incredibly strong position to seal glory. The match also saw St Cuthberts Gary McBrinn in good touch with a nice break of 22 in his frame success.
    Skelmersdale Wardens A continue to push the leaders all the way to the line for the league title and they too made it sixteen wins so far this term. This time around they clashed with Stanley Club C and completed a 4-2 home victory to sit those five points off the pace-setters and it's still all to play for in the final two matches. The match also saw Skelmersdale A's Paul Holcroft in excellent form with nice breaks of 21 & 20 in his frame win.

    Aughton Institute D continue in fine form as they made it three wins on the bounce as this week they defeated Skelmersdale Wardens C 4-2. As mentioned before, if the Aughton D lads had of shown this type of form earlier in the campaign then they surely would have been in with a very good chance of retaining the title they won so emphatically last season. This outcome sees unchanged in league placings as they remain in third spot in the league standings and this is the best position they can finish in come the end of the current campaign.

    Stanley Club B ended their evening by recording their eleventh draw of the season as they were unable to be separated with Aughton Institute B in a 3-3 stalemate. This contest saw a very close affair as there was never any more than a single frame `in the match. This result sees the Burscough-based boys remain in fourth spot in the league proceedings but now sit three points behind the team directly above them.

    The other match played this time saw Aughton Institute C make it back-to-back victories as this week they produced a solid display to defeat Farmers Club 4-2. The match was delicately poised at 2-2 but the Aughton C outfit upped a gear to take the final two frames of the encounter to clinch their win. This outcome sees them move up a spot in the league table.
