Saffron Walden Challenge – Sunday 23 February 2014
The Saffron Walden Challenge, sponsored by Bushwood Accountants was held at Cambridge Snooker Centre on Sunday 23 February 2014.  Norwich Snooker League successfully defended the title they won 12 months ago by 1 point ahead of Saffron Walden who finished as Runners Up.  Well done to our team Adam Ingram, Russell Huxter and Darren Edmonston.  There was some consolation for Adam who in his last frame of the tournament secured the high break of the day with a flawless 124.
