Bradford No 1 secured the Yorkshire Inter-District Snooker League Division One title at the weekend with a 4-2 victory over Sheffield No 3 at Undercliffe Cricket Club last Sunday.

Wayne Cooper won the opening frames 70-28 and 72-43 against Ashley Carty, and captain Kevin Firth won the all-important third frame, beating Yorkshire quarter-finalist Wayne Wootton 59-32 to ensure the team retained the trophy they won last season.

Firth could do little in the next as Wootton made a 76 break to win 76-4, and Mark Slater shared frames with Carl Whitby, winning their first 78-30 with the Sheffield player taking the last 48-27.

Doncaster’s Dave Parker included a break of 45 in a 200-107 victory over Stephen Kershaw, who just couldn’t keep his opponent away from the table.
