Following the shocking news about our fellow pool player, Craig William's, accident, Chairman Lee Holmes announced at the captain's meeting on Sunday 6th Nov, that Chris Wilcock is setting up a 'GoFundMe' for Craig's family.
Three teams that were drawn for the money prizes at the end of the meeting did not hesitate in donating their money which will go straight to Louise (Craig's wife) to help towards transport costs to Manchester to visit him in hospital.
Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated please ask your teams this
week if they are prepared to contribute?
On that note I don't think doing my usual report with a joking theme would be
appropriate so I will just report facts from last week.

IPA 2022 Tour 5

Quite a few wins and loads more experience I'm sure against very good players.
Scotch Pairs Semi Final, Sunday 6th nov
Eddie Williams and Rick Bullock beat Nikki Oakes and Jimmy Yea 4-2. Apparently Nikki was unlucky to not take it to a deciding frame.
In the other Semi Final, Roy Whyatt and Rob Oliver beat Lee Holmes and Carl Meehan by the same score 4-2.
I watched this Semi and along with other spectators thought this match would also
go to a deciding frame when Carl refused a pot on his last ball (looked in off) and
lay a very good snooker.
Sporting a new haircut Rob Oliver calmly played out of the snooker hitting the black full ball and doubled it into the top pocket.
Well played all and congratulations to the four players making the Final.
Earlier in the day some of these players had played for Cheshire County and had
unfortunately lost to Lancashire.
Tuesday 8th Nov: Men's Singles Final - Roy Whyatt versus Adam Stevens
Wednesday 9th Nov: International Rules League
