The Pendle Pool League Team Knockout Final was an all-Colne affair, as Legion beat Snooker Club B 4-2.

Legion drew first blood through their experienced pair of captain Nick Peacock and Mark Wells, but soon the score was level as Jonathan Allen and Herbie Hartley

responded brilliantly for Snooker Club.

Mark Wells took Legion ahead in frame three, and Dean Emmott consolidated in frame four to take the score to 3-1.

However, Nick Peacock fell foul of the wily Derek Hart in frame five as the frame score moved to 3 -2.

Frame six saw Bob Redman make the finest of cuts on the black to give Legion a deserved 4-2 victory, taking the Team Knockout champions title for a second successive year.
