The Malting’s Q Club at King’s Lynn hosted the 15th annual West Norfolk Billiards League presentation evening, with record numbers attending.

West Acre B won the nine team, 27-man Alternate Shot Team Championship from Swaffham Conservative B.

League champions this season were Malting’s B, who combined the experience of 80-year-old Kelvin Fairweather and youth of 16-year-old Nathan Boughen to help clinch the title from West Acre B who just failed to retain the title. Team KO Champions were West Acre C (Gerry Rudley and Mick Cooper) while runners-up were Narborough (Jazmin Cainey and James Freestone).

Phill Welham’s 121 was the highest break and Mark Tims’ 76 the second highest.

League Open Champion was Dean Bavister from Mark Tims, handicap champion was Richard Thorpe (runner-up Kelvin Fairweather) and junior champion was Jack Easte (runner-up Rochy Woods).
