With the the unveiling of our brand new logo and the Winter 2022/23 season almost upon us - now felt a good time to give MaclesfieldPoolLeague.com a bit of a relaunch.
One of the key changes is to the home page, which will now feature a news feed for league information and updates from the committee.
As part of this we are welcoming contributions from the membership with write-ups on matches, events any other memories or anecdotes related to the league. And in that spirit we are pleased to feature 'The Pool Scene with Irene Green' as a great example.
We've also simplified the navigation bar, with the aim to make it quicker to find information you're looking for. To do this much of the older content has been archived and will be migrated across to the news feed over time.
Finally, and by no means least, league and committee legend Micky Blair has written a history of the league - with some great stories.
The plan is continue improving the website and adding more content, so if you have any ideas or spot anything missing, please let us know As always we welcome feedback (and volunteers to help even more so) - so if you have anything to offer, please get in touch.
Two International Rules Winter League matches played a week early.
A league: SSSC F beat SSSC A 6-5 after being 4-1 down ! and the F teams Paul Hulley got the first 8 ball of the Winter League season.

While Storm Ian was hitting Florida storm clouds were also forming over the Silktown Snooker Club as our Chairman(& local hero) Lee Holmes was trying to dodge a battering by Macc Town FC's Robbie Savage in a pool challenge.
Talking of windy events the clubs Johnny Sherratt breezed into the quarter finals of the Men's Individuals with a 4-2 win over Carl Meehan.
The Flowerpot H/Rd's "Prosseco" Paula Armitt was hosting her last karaoke (& 4th hen do!) as a 'Miss' as she is set to tie the knot with the Britannia's Colin Parkes in less than two weeks .
A mention for the king of karaoke Steve Holland who himself admits he's better with a mic in his hand than with a pool cue!
