Other players that have improved their position this season include; Dan Legassick, up to fourth place; Mitch Grinsted, up to fifth and Dale Branton, up to seventh place.

CURRENT GOLD WAISTCOAT CHAMPION RACKS UP MAXIMUM BREAK No 14
For the past two seasons Andy Neck has proved that he is the most consistent player on the WEBSF Gold Waistcoat Tour and is deserving of consecutive Gold Waistcoat Tour Champion titles. In event one he lost in the semi’s which, although not obvious, this clearly hurt. Like all quality players he took the defeat on the chin and went back to the practice table more determined that before to make amends. Event two is not until January 4th but he has put down a marker by way of maximum break No.14……Beware the Neckmiester is hungry!

SELWAY’S ONLY GONE AND WON THE 3 REDS!
Those were the words, with the odd expletive, of a team mate on hearing that after many years of trying and four near misses, Ray Selway had won the annual Seaton League 3 reds tournament.

This year there was the added incentive of prize money for the top four places, kindly donated by Graham Ward & Sons Tiling.

Several big guns went out early yet again, in what is always an enjoyable event bringing the league players together to socialise and reminisce old times.
