    This time around saw the resumption of exciting league action after last week's Le Rose Cup matches and it saw Aughton Institute E take over the leadership of Division One of the Ormskirk & District Amateur Snooker League.

    They did this in
    fine style after an excellent 5-1 away triumph over Red Lion Social Club B and they now hold a two point advantage. This match saw Aughton E's Robbie Wilsonclaim, amazingly, his fourth 'Break of the Week' accolade as he was in terrificform with a fine break of 38 to seal this week's prize then a further solid break of 35 later in the frame. It must be mentioned that this latest win this particular week was Robbie's thirteenth success out of thirteen matches to maintain his fantastic 100% record so far this term. Robbie also sits at the head of the First Division Player Rankings.

    Robbie's break began relatively early in the frame when his opponent left him the opportunity of a mid-range red. Robbie potted that red ball playing an excellent shot to get position on the black which was no means easy. He dispatched the black ball and went onto pot a further three reds, all with high valued colours, in that flowing, steady style of his coupled with fine potting and pinpoint positional play. His next red was a little tricky but he managed to pot it and finish on the black ball once again. He then potted that black ball going into a small cluster of reds which split beautifully but Robbie had the big disappointment of finishing on none of them and his break came to a premature end on thirty eight.

    In this potential pivotal week it saw the two top sides of the previous six seasons go into battle as Defending six-times Champions, Fleetwood Hesketh SSC and six-times Runners-up, Olympic BC B clashed. At the end of the match is saw an excellent 4-2 home victory for the Southport based team to see them close in on their opponents. The outcome saw the Olympic B outfit drop into second place in the league table, those two points off the pace-setters, whilst the Fleetwood Hesketh boys remain in third position, some three points off the leaders, but they do have an all important match in hand over the two sides above them. The match also saw Fleetwood's Martin Brown in good nick as he compiled a nice break of 32 in his frame success.

    Red Lion Social Club A got straight back to winning ways after their disappointing result two weeks ago as this time they ended their night with a very solid 5-1 away win at the expense of Aughton Institute A to keep them firmly in touch with the top three teams. The result sees them continuing in fourth spot in the league standings were they lie six points off the summit but also have an important match in hand over the top two in the table. The match also saw Red Lion A's Chris Connolly in fine form with a really nice break of 37 in his frame victory.

    Lathom & Burscough RBL continue to chalk up the wins and they got that winning feeling straight back this week after their defeat in their last match as they recorded their eighth success of the current campaign with a 5-1 away win at the expense of Rainford X SSC. This result sees them unchanged in league position as they lie in fifth slot.

    The other match played this time around saw Upholland Social engineer their best result of the current season with a 6-0 away demolition of Scarisbrick NSC. This was their second successive victory were they have taken eleven out of a possible twelve points. This outcome sees them continue in sixth in the league proceedings.

    The Division One merit table still sees Scarisbrick NSC leading the way despite their very heavy defeat this week but had their lead cut to just three points, they remain on 91 points. Rainford X SSC remain in second position despite their heavy reversal this time around, they sit those three points off the pace-setters and lie on 88 points. Third spot is held by Lathom & Burscough RBL after a solid success this time, they now sit on 86 points.

    Division 2

    Second Division leaders, St Cuthberts suffered their second successive reversal this particular week and are they beginning to feel the pressure in their quest for a quick fire return to the top flight? The Halsall based outfit clashed with promotion chasing Stanley Club B and it was the Stanley B lads who prevailed with a superb 4-2 triumph. The contest was delicately poised at 2-2 but the Burscough outfit stepped up a gear to take the final two frames of the match to seal their opponents fate. This result still see the St Cuthberts side lead the way by two points but the Stanley Club B team continue in third place but close the gap on the leaders to seven points. The match also saw Stanley B's Steve O'Hare in solid form again with a nice break of 23 in his frame success. This was Steve's sixteenth win out of seventeen matches played so far this term, a terrific record that sees him sit clear at the top of the Division Two Player Rankings.

    Skelmersdale Wardens A also tasted defeat this time around as they clashed with struggling Aughton Institute C and surprisingly suffered a 4-2 loss to dent their title challenge. The Skelmersdale A boys will be more disappointed not only with their defeat but with the leaders also suffering a reversal as it was a chance to close the gap at the top of the table even further. Credit to the Aughton C outfit as this was their best result in a difficult campaign for them to date. This outcome sees The Skelmersdale A team remain in second position in the league standings, those two points behind the pace-setters. The match also saw Aughton C's skipper Dave Ball in good nick with a break of 21 in his frame win.

    Farmers Club came up against Aughton Institute B this time and after quite a battle it saw both sides sharing the spoils with a 3-3 draw. This was a very tight affair as there was never any more than a single frame in the contest. The result sees the Farmers side unchanged in fourth place in the league proceedings. The match also saw Farmers Craig Caunce in good touch with a break of 20 in his frame victory.

    Skelmersdale Wardens C went into battle with club compatriots, Skelmersdale Wardens B this week in yet another Skelmersdale 'Derby' match and at the end of the good encounter it saw the Skelmersdale C lads seal a 4-2 triumph. The opening two frames were shared to see the match at 1-1 but the C team stepped up the pace to move 3-1 ahead and grabbed one of the final two frames to clinch their win. The outcome sees the Skelmersdale C outfit continue in fifth slot in the table. The match also saw Skelmersdale C's John Gregson in fine form with a nice break of 22 in his frame win.

    The other match played this particular week saw struggling Reigning Champions, Aughton Institute D, finally show the form that took them to a superb, runaway title success last season as they manufactured by far their best win of the current campaign with a 6-0 demolition of bottom side, Stanley Club C. This result sees them move up into sixth spot in the league proceedings. The match also saw Aughton D's Martin O'Looney in top nick with an excellent break of 28 in his frame success.

    Other notable break this week was – M Valentine (Skelmersdale Wardens B) 20.
