Yule Cup campaigns start

BORDERS snooker players took a break from league duties last week and began the 2012/13 Jean Yule Cup campaign.

Playing the first of four pool games there were no surprises for Group A with league high flyers Hawick Conservative Club A and Jed Legion walking away with convincing 5-1 victories following ties against Innerleithen and Selkirk B respectively.

Group two is going to prove a much tighter tussle however with Border Club v St Boswells and Selkirk A v Hawick Burns Club A all returning 3-3 draws. Hawick Burns Club B & Hawick Conservative Club B both enjoyed a free week.
