Week four of the South London & Kent Pool Alliance summer season and due to top of the table clashes In both Tier Two East and West, two unbeaten records had to go, leaving just two intact out of the twenty four team league.

In Tier Two West Sharks faced Bellegrove A and the match was a lot closer than the 10-5 in frames score line suggests, as many of the frames could have gone either way.

Arif Salih took the first frame for Sharks but Steve Hughes equalised for Bellegrove however, that was the only frame they scored In the first set, as Sharks went on to take it, 4-1.

Bellegrove won the second set, 3-2 and took the first frame of the final set but again that was the only frame they won In the set, making the overall score, 2-1 & 10-5 in Sharks favour.

Sharks, Eno Idiong was the only unbeaten player, winning all three of his frames.

Still unbeaten Sharks stay top and despite the loss Bellegrove are still second, after Eltham Terrace Nuthouse beat Hustlers B, 2-1 & 9-6 to overtake them In the table.

Nuthouse raced to an early, 4-1 lead In the first set and they won the first three frames of the second set to take it but Hustlers won the last two frames to bring the overall frame score back to, 7-3.

The first four frames of the last set were shared, sending It Into a final frame decider between Nuthouse Captain, Craig Jones and Joe Kane, with Kane taking it to give Hustlers the final set, to make the score, 2-1 & 9-6 to Nuthouse.

Jones and Aaron Shephard both won two of their three frames but Louis Wilbourne and Jon Syta both scored an unbeaten brace however, Hustlers Paul Doherty went one better with an unbeaten hat-trick.

Below the top four Happy Hustlers had a smile on their faces this week, after picking up their first victory but It was a close run thing with Fox & Hounds, going right down to the wire.

Every single set went down to a final frame decider, with Claire Stork beating Kerry Wyatt to give Hustlers the first, but Wyatt turned that around In the second against Jade Holmes, then Hustlers Captain, Angie Hobbs secured the final set and the match, 2-1 & 8-7.

Both teams had one unbeaten player, Alan Dolan for Fox and Hustlers Danny Campbell, both scoring three out of three.

Hustlers recorded their first win but Academicals won their first set and point In the most unusual way.

They played Crayford Social Club Rugrats, who whitewashed two of the three sets against Academicals but surprisingly they won the remaining set, 3-2 giving Rugrats the 2-1 victory In sets and 12-3 In frames.

Holding onto their unbeaten run at the top of Tier Two East was North Heath Social Club, causing Rose Inn to lose theirs In the process.

Rose Inn looked like they may be keeping their unbeaten record after taking their chances in the first set to win It, 4-1 butt North Heath recovered and won eight of the last ten frames to win the match.

The second set North Heath edged, 3-2 but then the momentum started to shift, with North Heath punishing Rose's mistakes, most notably two missed blacks to the centre.

North Heath went on to whitewash the final set, Including a couple of great clearances from Ian Stringer and Akar Necati to give their team the, 2-1 & 9-6 triumph.

Pickwick took full advantage of Rose Inn's loss by beating CSC Mr's & Miss Q's to go second In the table.

The victors didn't have It all their own way though, as CSC fought back from two sets down to take the last set to a final frame decider, eventually picking It up to make the final score, 2-1 & 8-7 to Pickwick.

Each side had a player on an unbeaten hat-trick, with Paul Gafa stealing one for Pickwick and Lee Bushell fighting hard for his.

Eltham Terrace Rack Pack beat the team above them, Foots Cray Social Club to leapfrog them Into sixth place.

Foots Cray didn't do themselves any favours by only having four players but they did well to keep the score down to, 3-0 & 9-6, with each set being won by the odd, 3-2 score line, the three frames they gave away.

Rack Pack's Tony Frost was the only unbeaten player, winning all three of his frames.

Bellegrove Flyers were looking to build on their excellent performance last week against Pickwick but it was the visitors, Falconwood Club A who came out of the blocks quicker, capitalising on Flyers mistakes to take a, 3-2 lead.

Falconwood also took the second set, 3-2 and by the third frame of the final set had secured the bonus point for reaching eight frames.

However, the final set was In the balance at two all when old Falconwood buddies, Richard Marsh, now with Flyers and Jamie Phillips met In the final frame decider and It was Marsh who gave Flyers the set and their point, making the final score, 2-1 & 8-7 to Falconwood.

The usual suspects of Marsh, Keith Mitchell and Paul Dawson all won two of their three frames to keep Flyers In the match but Falconwood's Shane Burnett went one better, winning all three of his frames.

Eltham Terrace Rovers keep hold of their surprising lead at the top of SLKPA Elite League with an emphatic victory over bottom team Royal Oak.

The first set was close, with Rovers edging It by 3 frames to 2 but they put their foot on the gas after that, taking the next two sets, 4-1 for an overall, 3-0 & 11-4 triumph.

Captain, Darren Porter led from the front with three out of three and he was joined by new recruits, Elliott Giles and Steve Dixon on the same score.

Just behind Rovers are Falconwood, who recorded a hard earned victory against old adversaries Hotshots.

Falconwood started the better, taking the first set, 4-1 and they went on to win the second, 3-2 giving them the match and a, 7-3 lead going Into the final set.

This meant they only needed one more frame for the bonus point, which Richie Mitchell won for them In the second frame of the set but that would be the only frame they scored In the set, giving It to Hotshots, 4-1, making the score a more respectful, 2-1 & 8-7 In Falconwood's favour.

This result puts Hotshots second from bottom but there are only five points between them and top, so Its early days.

Falconwood Club jumped Into third after their derby day victory against Falcons.

The first set was In the balance at two all when Dean James was unlucky to snooker himself on the black and In turn lose the frame and the set for Falconwood Club.

They didn't let this affect them though and they went on to win seven of the next eight frames to secure the match, eventually winning, 2-1 & 9-6.

On his debut, Peter Whyte performed a break & dish in his first ever frame to win the second set.

That first set point was all the more Important for Falcons, as It leaves them just one point behind their opponents.

The shock of the night came as newly promoted, Bellegrove Social Club beat last winter season's champions, Eltham Terrace Club A.

Steve Knight was the Inspiration behind their, 2-1 & 8-7 triumph, winning all three of his frames.

This result leap frogs Bellegrove over their opponents but only by one point.
