Dates For Your Diaries
AGM will be on Sunday 26th February. Lee requested that every team signing
has at least one team member present.
Pool Presentation will be on Friday 31st of March details TBA.
It was "Happy Days" and a "Bonanza" for the following teams:
Lord Byron B.
Ivy Leaf B.
Well done to "All In The Money".£££!
A League: "Match Of the Day" Leaders Silktown A lost their first league game at home against joint second place the SSSC E! They started well 3-1 up with an ball from Adam Stevens but the Ease then moved into "Top Gear" and won the remaining 7 games with an ball from captain Dave Cobey for an extra point, 3-8!
The Weaver B who were tied in second place also had a fantastic result 9-2 and an extra point for an ball from the "Merlin" Matt Furnival and so I think this League will go to "The Wire" for the top two trophies.
B League: Top two teams Nags A and Silktown C both won 6-5 and Silktown E move down after losing 3-8 to the Ivy Leaf C.
George and Dragon A remain "Top Of The Pops" with an excellent 10-1. The "Happy Valley" Spinners A won 6-5 to stay second. Silk Trader A slip to 3rd after losing 5-6.
Flowerpot B move into first place after winning 5-2 and Ivy Leaf A drop down
after losing 3-4.
B League: Silktown extend their lead winning 4-3. George and Dragon C are second despite losing to another team from the "Happy Valley" Spinners C 3-4.
C League: Bruce A remain top 4-3 win and an ball clearance from Chris Armstrong
Brewers C remain in second place despite losing 2-5 to Old Millstone X.
D League: Leaders Weaver A won 4-3 but are joined by Brewers A after their great 6-1 win.
Saturday 14th: Competition forms to be in.
Sunday 15th: Draws for the Mixed, Vets and 3aside take place.
Wednesday 18th: International League Super Cup round. Next round details TBA.
Thursday 19th: Macc Rules League.
Good luck all and happy potting
An air of invincibility is gathering around Silktown Snooker A as they complete a 10-1 demolition of SSSC A to kick the New Year off with a bang. Andrew McKie & Adam Stevens were able to pick up a bonus point for the leaders with an 8 ball clearance in the scotch pairs. The defending champions are now 42 points clear at the top of the table with only 4 games remaining in the season. Weaver B and SSSC E are the closest chasers, both tied on 73 points.
The B League on the other hand remains wide open, with Silktown Snooker E leaping from 4th to 1st. An 8-3 victory over previous leaders Silktown Snooker C plus an 8 ball clearance from Dave Kimpton for a vital bonus point sends them flying up the table, as Nags Head A and George & Dragon D both lost 5-6. Only 2 points separate the top 3 teams in a contest which looks set to go down to the wire.
Silk Trader A cut the deficit to C League leaders George & Dragon A to 11 points with a 7-4 away win to the Lord Byron A including an 8 ball clearance for Ash Rigby, as the George & Dragon A falter with a 5-6 loss to Bruce Arms A.
Ivy Leaf A keep their noses in-front at the top of the A League, despite losing 5-2 to SSSC. Andy Warner’s 8 ball gives them a bonus point to keep them top of the league by a single point. Flower Pot B C/Rd. are chasing them hard - a 4-3 away win against Queens X keeps them in striking distance.
Silktown Snooker maintain top spot in the B League with a 5-2 win against Flower Pot X C/Rd., with a bonus point to boot from Rick Podmore’s 8 ball clearance. He now ties Lee Smith in the 8 ball competition, both having made 3 in Macc rules so far this season.
Bruce Arms A now have fresh air between them and second place in the C League as they beat Silk Trader A 6-1, with chasers Brewers Arms C losing 5-2 to the George & Dragon B.
Brewers A close the gap in the D League with a 5-2 away win to Lord Byron X as leaders Weaver A are edged out 4-3 against Broken Cross A.
