It’s so tight 
at the top

GREETLAND and Sowerby West End share the lead in Division One of the Hove Edge BC Shield event on 46 points.

Greetland’s team of Pete Lea, Mick Shaw, George Simpson and Ken Fleming enjoyed a 14-12 victory over Hanging Heaton with Fleming an unlucky loser.

He was 13-1 down against Pete Jagger but fought back to 15-11. Jagger made it 17-11 but Fleming stormed back with a seven-break to take the lead before his opponent clinched a 21-18 win.

Sowerby West End’s Alan Dean, Alec Byrnes, Baz Morgan and Simon Conway won 17-12 against Lindley Liberal.

Defending champions Nomads (Keith Hatzer, Phillip Holroyd, John Armitage and Gareth Coates) are eighth of the nine teams but they enjoyed a 20-9 victory against early-season leaders Cleckheaton Sports, who are a point adrift of the top two.

Nomads captain Hatzer returned from holiday and recorded a 21-15 win against Jack Glazzard.
