winter team knockout finals 2018/19
The Stan Bent Team Knockout Final
Played Sunday 9th June 2019
@Kennys Sports Bar
Institute Jaffas 4-0 The Kennys Cue
The Institute achieved the league and cup double and also going through the entire season unbeaten
The Final was closer than the score line suggests as both teams tried to get a hold of the match.
Guvvy Gill (Jaffas) cleared well against Martin Priestley after a mistake by the latter to make it 1-0. Up next saw Daz Lighfoot take on 1st div most wins winner Mike Barker and a missed pot by the latter, where it seemed certain to win the frame let Lighfoot back in and he cleared to make it 2-0. Dave Barker was drawn against Rob 'whacker' Wharne in frame 3 and after breaking, the cueball was left stranded. An attempt to play safe wasn’t safe enough for Wharne, and he duly cleared the table in one visit. Frame four saw Ian Lewis take on Scott Price. Lewis showed some good form and had the first opportunity, but unfortunately he fell short with position on the black and after a failed attempt Price duly took his chance and sealed the winners trophy for the Jaffas running out 4-0 winners
Thank you to Kennys Sportsbar on hosting the event. Also thank you to both Shaun Cooper and Kevin Brown on refereeing the Final

b. When breaking, a player who pots a ball legally. can consult with their partner to decide which nominated ball they wish to play. THIS IS THE ONLY TIME PLAYERS CAN DISCUSS THEIR SHOT during a visit.
c. Throughout a visit, there must be no coaching and no talking between the players at the table. The player can only ask the referee for rule enquiries only. Players who break these rules will be served a “serious foul” which will result in loss of frame.
Can all players at the venues please share the refereeing duties and play within the spirit of the game.
