Norfolk Super League finished with the West Norfolk League getting two excellent wins over Norwich C 4-1 and Broadland 5-0, at home at King's Lynn's Maltings Q Club.

Good wins in both games for Gary Norman and Phillip Welham and individual wins for Tim Drew, Dan Westwood and John Hayhoe saw West Norfolk secure enough points for overall runners-up in the league behind Norwich C who retained the title.

This season the West Norfolk League had nine players represent their team and it is hoped that there may be enough interest to run two sides in next year's event.

Highest breaks: Phillip Welham 185, 114, 103. Jamie Edwards 100.

Meanwhile, Woodside Snooker Centre of Norwich hosted the 13th holding of the popular event Norfolk Handicap Championship and Gaywood's Dan Westwood did very well to reach the semi-finals where he lost to eventual champ Alan Cheetham (Norwich) 250-195.

Westwood, 18, had earlier defeated Norwich's Fos Wilson 250-117 and Mervyn Tuffield (Hethersett) 250-244 to reach the semi-finals.
