The 11-year-old has a three-point advantage at the top of the Monday league.

Kirby leads Ryan Wilson by two frames in division two.

Four-time champion Samuel Laxton has opened up a four-point lead over Tyler Mack and Jake Sharp in the Wednesday league.

But Rhys Pearce recovered from this and was unbeaten in the remainder of his games in the nine-strong round-robin.

He extended his lead over Keira Hiscock to 13.5 points.

Jake Daffin has a 7.5 point lead over George Barber in division two.
