BROUGHTON Wings have been crowned Division One champions in the Chester and District League after a nail-biting end to the season.
It is the first time Broughton have claimed the Division One trophy since 1958-59 when they were known as De Havilland.
Wings and Conservative A had been level at the top of the table after recording 5-1 wins over the Snooker Centre and United Services B respectively.
But the title went Wings' way after they claimed a 5-1 victory over United Services B while Cons A could only draw 3-3 at home to St Theresa's B.
Cons were soon 2-0 down with Saints having wins from Wayne Amey over Eddie Jenkins and Barry Davies against Dave Smith.
'Mr Consistency' Lea Dagher then took to the table for Cons against Peter Sheppard and, after taking advantage of a loose safety shot, stepped in with a 63 break for the frame.
Steve Williams potted well against Joey Wynne and brought Cons level at 2-2. Andy Short ran out an easy winner over Barry Charker to put Cons 3-2 up and, when Theresa's put 20-year-old Chase Kirwin on the table against Neal Jones, it looked as if Cons could have a chance of the league title.
But Chase had other ideas and he made a 43 break to record what was probably the best win of his short career to earn Theresa's a respectable 3-3 draw.
Upton RBL recorded their biggest win of the season with a 5-1 verdict against Conservative B.
Last year's runners-up, United Services A, lifted themselves into fourth place with a 4-2 win over Snooker Centre.
In Division Two, United Services C moved closer to booking their place in Division One, even though they were held to a 3-3 draw by Conservative C.
Star of the show was teenager Sean Davies whose father also plays in the Cons team.
He emphatically defeated Geoff Cadogan, who until last week was leading the 'most wins' stakes.
Liberal A continued their improved form with a 5-1 win over Broughton Wings B.
Wins by Cunningham, Lloyd, Powell, Rowlands and Dodd gave second-placed CCO a good victory over Christleton to keep them in touch with leaders Services C with three games to play.
In Division Three, the situation at the top of the league is very tight.
St Saviours, who were leading the division by two points, fell at home to Upton RBL B.
Steve Proctor opened the scoring for Saviours but Tony Ankers and Alan Coombes put Upton ahead.
Roy Proctor brought the score level but Leo Jackson and Mike Wilkes gave Upton the victory.
Upton D had to postpone their match and are five points behind the top two with one to play. nWayne Amey showed his experience against 17-year-old Gareth Allen to win his third Chester Hargreaves Final on Monday.
In the first frame, Wayne made a 43 break to pull away from Gareth and win comfortably. In the second, Gareth went 28 clear, but Wayne pulled himself level with a 36 break and went on to take the frame.
Gareth let Wayne in again in the third and he clinched the match with a 69 break.
