British Legion A won the Barrow Friday League Knockout Cup after a 16-13 away win at Barrow Football Supporters Club in the fifth and final round of fixtures allowed them to finish 18 points clear at the top of the table.

They were helped by their snooker team winning all of their games on the night, with captain John Tyerman easily beating the Soccer Bar’s debutant Frank Mullen 59-21.

Dave Simpson won well against Stuart Culbert 60-43 and Billy Burns sealed the final point 73-36 against Jimmy Christie.

The Legion also performed well on the billiard table, taking all three games, with their top man beating Jimmy Wilson 100-69. There were also good wins from Steve Hetherington and Tony Macmillan, who beat Denis Plant and Stuart Pearson respectively.

The Soccer Bar darters had a good night on their home board, taking five points thanks to wins from Culbert, Christie, Pearson and Barry Butterworth, who played twice. The away wins coming from Shaun McPoland and Simpson.

The hosts pulled more points back in welch don by winning all their games. Alan Bonner was in two of them, firstly with regular partner Butterworth then again with Plant, who also played again with Culbert. Ronnie Davies and Dave Griffiths took their game 2-1 against Dave Macmillan and Mala McCoy.

The British Legion finished as runners-up following a 16-11 victory at home to Vickerstown Cricket Club, with Mike Smith taking the last two colours to beat Jimmy Allen 42-30 in the final snooker game.

Kevin Quinn’s 100-49 win over David Holmes rounded off a clean sweep in the billiards before the Cricketers won five of the darts games, including a 140 score for Brian Tucker and the two teams shared the spoils at welch don.

In the other fixture, the Navy Club finished off in style with a 19-9 thumping of bottom team Roose Cons.

Wins for Joe O’Leary and Nick Wilkie gave the visitors the edge in the snooker and they dominated on the billiards table thanks to victories for Paul Turner, Paul Kyle and Ian Large.

The Navy continued their winning ways in taking five of the darts games and the teams won two welch don games each, with Large picking up wins in both to make it a treble.
