Centre on cue for first pro-am; SNOOKER.

THE region's newest club - The Newcastle Snooker Centre - plans to stage its first pro-am tournament on Sunday, December 18.

Entry to the handicapped best-of-fiveframe contest (semi-final and final best of seven) costs pounds 25, with losers responsible for the table charges.

Prize money will include all entry fees.

The handicap system sees professionals conceding 28 points a frame, ex-professionals and internationals 21 and others at the discretion of the organisers.

Tables will be available for practice from 10.30, with all tables to be paid for before the 11.15 deadline for entries. Matches will start at 11.30.

Any players requiring further information should contact Michael Sheldon on 0191 274 8000. ? S/HIRST B's (24) 3-0 win against Vets A in the snooker section of the Ashington Veterans League helped increase their lead to five points over Guidepost.

However, it was a different story in the billiards with veteran Brian Chilton knocking in a superb 82 to beat Billy Turnbull.

S/Hirst C (22) lead the way in the billiards from Guidepost, with Vets D a further two points away in third.

CLAYTON A's 6-0 full house against Guidepost A kept them seven points clear at the top of the Ashington Chisholm and Scottish Breweries League from their B team.

Stakeford Welfare remain in third despite taking only two points off Clayton B. One of those came from their former Northumberland county player Alan Cairns.

He already holds the highest break with a 83, but showed he was still a force to be reckoned with by beating Jimmy Morris with a classy 78.

WITH all outstanding matches played, champions Gateshead SC share top spot in the Newcastle and Gateshead League with Westfield B on 41 points.

Labour A head the rest of the field in second place, just one point adrift.
