thumbSEAN HARVEY IS BYFLEET INDIVIDUAL SNOOKER CHAMPION
March 6, 2019
RYAN MEARS reached the final after a 3-0 semi final victory over STEVEN WILLIAMS. Steven had knocked Ryan out of the snooker handicap last week and did little wrong in each frame however Ryan was in excellent touch and took each frame with authority. Both played well and produced good safety shots but Ryan was clinical making a break in each frame, 41, 35 and 65 respectively. There will be other big nights for Steven who continues to be 'knocking on the door'. The other semi final between two friends and rivals spluttered a little. Their mutual respect showed with tactical play a theme. SEAN HARVEY settled the better and took the first frame with a 27 and aided by another of the same amount went into a two frames lead in the best of 5 tie. PAUL BUNYARD, the reigning champion appeared a little subdued throughout but sprung into life with runs of 46 and 39 to reduce the deficit. SEAN's 39 in the fourth frame proved enough to win the frame and match 3 -1. The FINAL - RYAN got off to the best start continuing where he left off in the semi's cueing very smoothly and timing the cue ball well. A 43 saw him take the first of a possible 5 frames. SEAN, having played his semi final on the adjacent table got used to the change of pace and conditions now and levelled at 1-1. RYAN made a very well constructed 50 breaking down on a straightforward blue to centre at frame ball meant he had an anxious wait to see if SEAN could take the last red upwards to steal an unlikely frame win. He took red and blue but failed by half a ball to land perfectly on the yellow to middle that would have seen him favourite to clear up. He missed the tricky pot and RYAN went on to take green and brown to go 2-1 up.4th Frame - SEAN potted red, black, red but missed a black leaving it on the top cushion. RYAN got in with a medium range red and gained position on the black and continued to 32 via a well composed break. Without being hampered over two reds a red to middle would have been straightforward. He missed and SEAN responded very positively and produced his best snooker taking what was there until two kicks in a row left him out of position on 30.From the safety RYAN went for a long red up the side rail and left SEAN on it and he put together an excellent 37 to level at 2-2. 5th Frame - SEAN laid two good snookers, the first resulted in a touching ball but the second proved significant as the opportunity arose for SEAN to finish with a 59 break that included a couple of 'naughty shots' when the win was assured. The final was compelling to watch with both players probing for opportunities like boxers in the ring. Congratulations to SEAN, he will represent the league along with PAUL and RYAN in next years Champions of Champions. All three will do us proud. Thanks to George Reeves for refereeing and to Ian Geldard and the West Byfleet Social Club for use of their snooker room. Click on full story for scores and breaks of the final.

thumbSNOOKER SEASON'S ROUNDUP
February 1, 2019
The snooker season finished on Thursday with a remarkable 9 out of the 14 matches played ending in draws despite much at stake. In the PREMIER Division SUNNINGHILL COMRADES 'B' finished the season unbeaten and retain their title by a staggering 19 points. Last season's promoted STAINES CONS 'A' had a great season finishing runners up. MATT FORD'S 119 was the highest of 5 centuries to take the high break prize. 88 was the lowest break to get in the top ten!!!! PAUL BUNYARD and RYAN MEARS shared the most number of breaks over 25 with 33 each, SEAN HARVEY was breathing down their necks with 31 despite playing fewer frames. DIVISION One - WALTON COMRADES 'A' continuing their rapid rise to the top having won Division Three and Division Two in previous seasons took the Division One title. A fantastic achievement and they will be in the Premier next season. CAMPHILL finished runners up and are promoted back to the Premier which they contested in the 2016/2017 season. Highest break of 72 was made on the penultimate week of the season by STUART CONNOR pipping CHRIS RIGBY's 70 break from September. STUART with 21 breaks of over 25 was the leading break maker. DIVISION Two - you can be forgiven thinking that these were the only fixtures being played with all of the social media hype surrounding it but in a Titanic season long battle NEW HAW SOCIAL 'B' came out on top on most wins having finished on equal points with WEST BYFLEET SOCIAL 'C'. These two teams dominated the division throughout the season and after finishing third last season NEW HAW reaped the benefit of their consistent play to gain promotion to Division One. Despite many weeks of drama it was absorbing watching this division play out. Congratulations to both teams on an epic battle. ALEX JONES took individual honours with a highest break of 53 and 7 breaks over 25. DIVISION Three - WALTON COMRADES 'B' completed a superb double for the club taking the title with STAINES CONS 'C' climbing out of the division after many, many seasons finishing as runners up. LIAM CONNAUGHTON taking individual break honours with a highest of 30 and 4 over 25. OTTTERSHAW 'A's ANDY JACKSON gets a special mention having lost just twice in the season.
