TON FOR TONY! Clegg chalks up fine 140 break en route to last four in Plate.

Byline: By DAVID LOCKWOOD Sports Reporter

TONY CLEGG is the latest Huddersfield player to notch a century break at billiards this season.

The Huddersfield Billiards and Snooker League president posted a superb 140 break during one of the tournaments held on the Amateur Billiards Circuit.

It was held at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds and was organised by the English Amateur Billiards Association.

Having lost in the first round, Clegg went into the Plate event, and made his break on the way to the semi-final, where he lost to eventually winner Eddie Fielding.

But if Clegg was on song, then his former Yorkshire League teammate Brian Cousen was on the wrong end of a big break, as he had to sit and watch his opponent, Billy Bousfield (the No1-ranked amateur in England, who is coached by world champion Mike Russell) made a break of 354!

And Cousen was not on his own in spending a lot of time on his seat, as another of Huddersfield's contingent, David Peaker, saw his opponent Jonathan Bagley make a break of 255 against him in the same event.
