Right on Cue
The final fixtures in Division Three of the Yorkshire Inter-District Snooker League take place this weekend, with Bradford No 2 in prime position for automatic promotion.
With outstanding matches now played by all the teams, Bradford head the table by one point after defeating Selby 5-1 at Manningham Ward.
Boover Singh won both frames by narrow margins against Daz Hawkins, 69-57 and 56-53, with Tanveer Mohammed comfortably winning both his against Richard Bresnan, 68-22 and 77-43.
Captain Hanif Rafiq went down 59-38 in the first frame against Selby captain Kev Hawksworth but recovered to take a vital frame 77-24.
