B team captain Alan Houghton cleared the colours to pip Steve Bradshaw last time out and this time he recorded a fine win against Andy Jones. Mike Houghton had an equally impressive night defeating Rob Wilson. Aughton A won the other four frames comfortably and trail leaders Formby Club B by four points.
