CHAMPION John Hunter allowed himself a brief period of rejoicing before swiftly turning to next season’s plans for the Cuestars South Wilts Snooker League.

The league founder, pictured, from Andover, wrapped up his fifth successive title and an eighth in total with a 5- 0 win against sixth-placed Paul Burt at Salisbury Snooker Club.

“I’m very pleased to do it again,” said the outright winner, 48.

He added: “I’m thinking of giving the league a revamp next season by having a top four play-off and a top two junior play-off as a decider.”

Meanwhile, in the match of the day, runner-up Adam Guyatt (Salisbury) compiled a 50 break in his first visit to the table and added a 30 before Steve Ashton (Salisbury) had seen a pot.

Ashton took a 40 point lead in the second frame – and lost on the pink – and snookered himself on the yellow when 26 in front in the next, losing to a great clearance. The final two frames were shared for a 4-1 defeat.

Ally Pollard (Alderholt) ended his debut season with a 4-1 defeat by Martin Hill (Durrington).
