31 May - Just to let you know that we are still here and will leap into action so we can finish the season off as soon as we have some pubs to play in.
What happens with the Competitions will depend on exactly when the pubs are open for business once more.
Here's hoping you are all keeping well and that every pub in the league will be able to open again sometime soon.
25 March - With little else to do, a few tweaks and updates/correction to the website. Was trying a big update but broke too much to continue. Will keep going at it though as I have little else to do in the evenings at present.
The wine and cider are kicking in now so I will refrain from any further work unless I want to spend tomorrow correcting it!
23 March - With the country going into shutdown it doesn't look as if we will be playing pool any time soon. Hopefully we will be able to fit everything in before the summer.
My birthday celebrations on Wednesday will be curtailed with no pubs or restaurants open. Not a good time to take a week off either as everything is shut. Be glad to get back to work next week.
18 March - Wednesday Final tables adjusted with all penalties for late cards applied. This has had no effect on the final positions so a rethink may be in order for next season. In tests, ignoring games and frames scored when result not submitted had no effect either and a penalty of a point deduction affected the bottom of Division One only. Sunday has not had the penalties applied as there is no change again and most of the penalties apply to the bottom club anyway.
16 March - Final result in and Horse & Groom A have taken second place. N.B. Table now corrected!
15 March - Final matches tonight and things could go any way with the top four playing each other and all four games affecting final league positions.
Results online as received as usual.
Breaking News! In light of the present situation with Covid-19 and the possibility of pubs being closed we have decided to suspend things for the time being. This will affect the Sunday Cup Final and Plate semis and final as well as the Competitions. Amended dates for everything will be advised when the situation is a bit clearer.
11.20pm - Railway Club are top of the league. Second place still uncertain as no result in for that match yet.
14 March - After a query this morning we would like to point out that unless pubs are shut by covid-19 regulations, we will be playing the final Sunday league games tomorrow and hopefully the Cup and Plate matches in the following two weeks. Competitions are scheduled for 1 April at present but will be postponed or cancelled if necessary.
13 March - It was intended to launch into the Competitions next Wednesday (18 March). With the uncertainty caused by covid-19 we have decided to postpone things until Wednesday 1 April for now. Fixtures will be going online as soon as the website can be sorted and hopefully circumstances will allow us to commence in a couple of weeks. We will keep you all informed of any changes to the schedule if necessary.

We are looking to hold an Individuals Competition to be played on Sunday nights after the season ends. This will be open to all Sunday and Wednesday players and should hopefully appeal to those prospective players either unable or unwilling to play in the main competitions held on Wednesdays.
