Stubbington Hawks moved within a point of top spot in the Gosport & Fareham League after an emphatic demolition of fellow title challengers Mayfair Masters.

Steve Street’s fine form this season continued as he made a 66 break – the highest of the week – in his win over Chris Robinson.

Team-mate Jordan Winbourne hit a 38 and 43 as he brushed off the challenge of Sean Whitmore.

And Shaun Murray made sure the rout was complete as he took two frames off Gary Polkinghorne.

Not only are the Hawks flying high in league action but Winbourne is also top of the century break board for amateurs across the country.

The budding professional’s 119 in the Gosport & Fareham League is the highest recorded by the English Association for Snooker & Billiards.

The league’s competitions secretary, Paul Foster, said: ‘Jordan is knocking in breaks for fun at the moment.

‘His 119 will be hard to beat but if it is, it will probably be beaten by him.

‘It shows how the standard of the Gosport & Fareham League has risen in recent years.

‘The top players from across the area want to play here because it’s a fun league but also deadly competitive at the same time.’

Back in the league, current leaders and reigning champions 147 Legends came from behind to win at Stoke B.

Roger May’s Stoke side had looked good for a win after racing into a 5-3 lead, with Joe Booker knocking in a 37 break.

But wins by Colin Norton and Pascal Richard, who notched a 52 and 34, saw them emerge 7-5 victors.

Surprise early title contenders continued their great start by slaughtering Hill Park B 9-3. Wins by Dave Norman, Terry Pugh, Nick Beer and Steve Spillett puts them just six points off the lead but with a game in hand.

In a closely-fought division, Carry On Mayfair remained in third with a sound 8-4 win over newly-promoted Stoke 155.

There were wins by Pete Grundy, Paul Stracey and Chris Stone.

HMS Collingwood seem to be getting to grips with the top flight after winning promotion from division two.

They picked up an excellent 9-3 win away to Hill Park C.

In division two, it was a week of draws.

Mayfair Mixups remain in second place after a well-earned draw at home to club rivals Mayfair Fools.

And Stoke Sharks scored six frames on the road to 147 Select.

n Top players from across the region will descend on Fareham Snooker Club as it stages another pro-am this month.

The Broadcut club will hold the tournament on Saturday, November 24.

Depending on entries, the winner will take home £350. Matches will take place from 10.30am.
