After almost 30 years without any Lincolnshire County Snooker action in the Louth League the competition returned with a tournament set up by Lincoln Snooker Club, writes Jack Westerby.

In the Preliminary round, Louth’s Craig Shaw produced a resounding 4-1 win at the Louth Town & Country Club.

Into the first round and a trip to Grimsby saw Gary Skipworth fight back from 3-1 down to clinch victory 4-3 to go through to the quarter-finals. Craig Shaw received another home draw, but his opponent won 4-1, including a 62 break.
