Rumours have been gathering pace that legendary pool ace Andy West is in negotiations to make a dramatic return to the Nuneaton Singles League. He declined an interview with The Monthly Cue, and just inquired if anyone had put a bid in for his cue and case. So we at the Cue interviewed close friend and teammate Alun Jones who said, “Andy should say in retirement so we just have fond memories of how shit he was. He shouldn’t start playing again and prove it.”

Spec Savers have also pulled out of an alleged sponsorship deal with Rob Orton when they realised he didn’t need glasses he was just really shiIt at pool.


Justin Hawkins of The Darkness fame look alike Alun Jones has firmly denied reports that he is indeed Mick Hill of Slade or indeed Swampy and Jesus even if their are groovy man! The Cue asks Is it Al Jones or Justin (pictured) you decide.


Fife Street’s Mick Taylor has finally changed his name to Mick Taylor0 as it appears every week on the Nomads score sheet.

Rumours have not yet been confirmed that both Keith Beasley and Andy Yearby have both potted a ball in a pocket that they were actually aiming for.

Two alleged pool players Jason Spencer and Stuart McClaughlin are allegedly in talks with the B.B.C. to do a spin off of a popular cookery show but about pool it will be called Can’t Pot Won’t Pot.

Congratulations also go out to Mark Chapman who beat of a host of hopefuls including Karl Knight and Mick Taylor to land the role of uncle Festa in the next Adams Family movie entitled 6 Hours to Yarmouth on the A47.


Karl Knight was not disappointed for long though as he later landed the Star role of Gollum’s stunt double in a new movie about how Gollum became Gollum. The movie is entitled ‘Where’s My Cue Precious’ as is due for release next month.

Knight is pictured resting after a gruelling day on set.



Due to an alleged incident at this year’s event a certain team which will remain nameless. To protect their identity we will call them the Nomads.Well they feel their side has been weakened by these events and are not happy and have rightly or wrongly accused chairman Bob Jefferies and have put a bounty on his head. Speaking from a secret location in Buttermere Ave next to number 11 Mr Jefferies said ‘He was feeling the pressure.

Paul Gosling’s hopes of putting the disappointment of last season’s relegation behind him sadly haven’t materialised. His run of poor form continues with defeats in his first 3 games of the new season. Committee man Bob Jefferies offered the dejected Gosling these words of encouragement after being asked for his thoughts ‘Goose has to remember he’s only been shit for 15 years look at Al Jones and Col Richards and there still trying’.


The Monthly Cue has been given this picture of a sausage sales man plying his trade in Great Yarmouth. We ask the question is this how Scott Varden became known as the Stockingford Sausage?

                E mail your thoughts and we will publish the clean ones, and any others probably.



We have received several complaints that Mark Chapman has allegedly sent ‘Ringers’ to play some of his matches.

                We at the Monthly Cue can confirm that he has now grown a beard (see photo).
