WITH the last former finalists having bitten the dust, there will be new names on the Ridley League's Dominoes Pairs trophy next summer.

Pat Monk, a winner in 2004 and 2005, lost with Flitch Snooker team-mate Keith Sweeting in the quarter-finals at Chelmsford Social Club last week, while John Steele (Black Bull), a beaten finalist last season, and May McGowan went out at the same stage.

Brian and Carol Cooke's 40-mile round trip from Bardfield Vine ended in a deciding-leg defeat by Wayne Goodwin and Darren Thomas (Rayne Cock), who will face Alan Bell and Simon Twin (Retreat) in the semi-finals.

The other semi pits Lee and Trevor Bright (Black Horse, White Roding) against South Section survivors Dave Chapman and Dave Suckling (CCFC A).

Spare a thought for Les Rolfe (Hatfield Peverel Swan), who turned up early, but found his partner hadn't - and was scratched.
