annual general meeting news

AGM News update

  Kev Brown and the committee have stated about Matchballs and has said that 'Pro cups' are still to be brought in by the start of the 2018/19 season. Also Kev did say that this season, all teams must now use red and yellow matchballs only, however venues which have RED cloth can use blue and yellow matchballs

  Dave Baker has decided to stand down from the committee. Dave has served the Sunday Pool League committee since the day it started and was given a warm and appreciative round of applause from all playing members that attended the meeting. It has been decided that Dave will continue as an honorary committee member with the freedom to join in meetings where it is possible.
I personally would like to thank Dave for all his support, hard work and honest opinions that he contributed to all meetings and wish him all the best for the futures. Cheers Mr Dave Baker It's been an honour.

This means that committee members are needed. Three people have offered their services which was all accepted. They are-
Simon Davies (Institute SC)
Gaz Bryant (Joiners Arms)
Les Murphy (Star & Garter)

Two proposals were brought up at the meeting
1. Stopwatch - after much discussion it was voted against with 5 votes for and 12 votes against
2. 'Lag for break' - instead of toss of coin for alternate breaks, it was proposed that lag for break would be another alternative. Again after discussion it was unanimously voted in and will be in affect as from the start of the Winter Season 2017/18.

Presentation evening will be held at Kennys on Friday 1st December 2017
Winter League Season to start 12th November 2017.

Thank you to all teams and players for attending the meeting.

8-ball hat-trick

Dave Barker (The Kennys Cues) recently completed a rare hat-trick of 8-balls in the Sunday Pool League.

The run of clearances started with two wins at St Georges, taking advantage of the biggest pockets in the League.

The third consecutive 8-ball was at home against Morris Man where, for good measure (mainly due to poor positional play), he finished off with 2 doubles into the same middle pocket.

The chance of making it four in a row was scuppered when Dave had a dry break in the second half, leaving Rob Wharne holding onto the outright record of four consecutive 8-balls.

winter team subsidiary ko final

Played on Sunday 11th June 2017

Venue - Kennys Sportsbar

ST GEORGES 4-1 GPO Social A

St Georges became the Subsidiary Team KO winners after securing a 4-1 victory over fellow 1st division side GPO A. St Georges already secured the 1st division Title the week before and thus make it a league and cup double.

John Daniels (Georges) was on first against Ant Davis (GPO). Davis went for his shots and looked in a great position until he unfortunately went in off on his final red. Daniels made no mistake and gave the Georges a 1-0 lead.
Robbie Jenkinson (Georges) was next on and took on Mark Sheerin (GPO). Both had chances but then it became a tactical frame and it was Sheerin who seized his chance and pot the black to level the scores at 1-1.
Paddy Baidwan (Georges) took on James Alldiss (GPO) in frame 3. Baidwan showed some fine form and his attacking style of play was rewarded with a nice clearance to make the score 2-1 to the Georges.
Jamie Woolley (Georges) was then paired against Mick Bryant (GPO) in frame 4 and from the start Woolley was in his stride. He took his chance and was rewarded with an '8 ball clearance' to give the Georges a 3-1 lead at the halfway point.
Jenkinson was on fifth and played Phil Alldiss (GPO). The match became a nervous frame and a long tactical battle was evident. Jenkinson dug in and was given a chance, he duly took it and won the match 4-1 to give the Georges the Winter Subsidiary KO trophy.

Another fine Final played in great spirit. Thank you to Lynda Simpson, Jason Armishaw and Neil Addison in refereeing the Final. Also thank you to Kennys Sportsbar for the use of their tables and food.

stan bent team knockout final

Played on Sunday 11th June 2017
Venue - Kennys Sportsbar

HOP POLE C 4-3 Metro Bar A

Hop Pole C became Stan Bent Team KO champions for the 2nd time (previously 2008/9) after overcoming a determined Metro Bar A team in the Final.

Alan Mason (Pole) started of proceedings with a fine performance against Alan Farrow (Met Bar) to put the Hop Pole C 1-0 up.
Mick Addison (Pole) then played Dave Ashton (Met Bar) in frame 2 and after an exchange of tactical play, Addison went for the clearance and put the Hop Pole C 2-0 up.
Duncan Sunderland (Pole) took on Warren Jesney (Met Bar) in frame 3 and Sunderland looked in a good position, but an 'in off' brought Jesney in and he duly took his chance to bring the Met Bar back in at 2-1 down.
Kev Brown (Pole) was drawn against Andy Palin (Met Bar) and Brown was in complete control. Then an uncharacteristic miss on his final yellow gave Palin a chance. He took it well with a fine clearance to level the match at 2-2.
Brown was straight back on in frame 5 and this time was up against Jesney. The match started of rather cagey, but another miss by Brown let Jesney back in. It looked a straight forward finish but he left his final shot blind on the black. With a bit of fortune, the black sat up and for the first time the Met Bar were ahead, 3-2 up.
Addison was next on in frame 6 and he was up against Andy Palin. The match was showing signs of tension but Addison had other ideas, he was left a chance and after some fine positioning he left himself a long black and he nailed it and so bring the scores level at 3-3.
Mason and Farrow were paired against each other in the Final Frame. Nerves started to show as both players knew that one loose shot could mean the end. After an exchange of snookers, Farrow left one short and gave Mason a great chance. He potted a long Final red and sunk a long black into the corner to give the Hop Pole C the Stan Bent Trophy.

A great Final played in great spirit, also a great turnout of fans from both teams and a great way to end the Winter season
Thanks to Tom Vernon, Dave Whitfield and Jason Armishaw for refereeing the final. Also thank you to Kennys Sportsbar for their hospitality in providing the tables and food.
