Mick Cockcroft marks call-up with impressive Bradford billiards display

Kevin Firth made a 89 break in his second frame.

BRADFORD’S billiards team enjoyed an impressive 8-5 victory over title-chasing Harrogate at Great Horton Conservative Club as they repeated their previous week’s Yorkshire Inter-District League result against fellow contenders Huddersfield.

It could have been even better, as Steve Wilman led from early in his game against Harrogate opponent Tom Halliday. A home win looked likely until, from 60 behind, Halliday ran in three 20-plus breaks in rapid succession before closing out the game 200-172 to give the visitors a 3-2 advantage.

Mick Cockcroft responded to a late call-up to play his first match for Bradford for several years and put in a great performance, overwhelming Harrogate captain Tim Godolphin 200-103 to edge his side into a 5-4 lead.

Stephen Kershaw and Paul Devitt give Bradford billiards team Yorkshire Inter-District League title boost

Gareth Green is through to the quarter-finals in his quest for a fifth Bradford Snooker Championship title

BRADFORD’S billiards team pulled off an impressive 8-5 home victory against title hopefuls Huddersfield No 1 in the Yorkshire Inter-District League to leave an interesting situation at the top of the table.

With three matches remaining, Huddersfield No 1 lead with 34 points, while Bradford have 33 and Harrogate are on 30 – but with four games to play, two of which are against Bradford.

The match was part of a double-header, with the Bradford No 1 snooker side playing Leeds No 2 on the next table at Great Horton Conservative Club, and the matches drew a good number of spectators.

In the opening billiards game, Stephen Kershaw and Huddersfield opponent Steve Whiteley were not at their best and an early run of 30 from Kershaw gave him a significant advantage.

Chances were missed by both players and breaks were small but a late run of 20 helped the Bradford player home 200-138 for a 3-1 lead.

Dave Peaker was quick off the mark for Huddersfield and soon led 53-8 against Steve Wilman.

A break of 47 got Wilman back on terms at the halfway stage before the second half followed a similar pattern, with Peaker making a 35.

This time though, Wilman’s late recovery ended in the 20s and Peaker saw the game out 200-162 to give Huddersfield three points to Bradford’s two.

Bradford cue ace Brian Mullaney dies aged 73

FORMER Bradford snooker champion Brian Mullaney has died aged 73.

He won the title in 1986 and created history as his brother Tommy took the Bradford billiards that year – the first time that siblings had held the crowns at the same time.

Mullaney, who died in the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford, also won the city’s billiards championship in 1994 and 2001.

This means that Colin is now the sole survivor of the 11 Mullaney siblings – five sons and six daughters, some of whom went to Australia as £10 Poms.

Brian’s funeral is at St Peter’s Church on Allerton Road tomorrow (10am), followed by a service at Scholemoor Crematorium at 11am, with a gathering afterwards at West Bradford Bowling Club on Duckworth Lane.
