thumbWALTON WORKING MENS TEAM REHOMED
November 26, 2018
Walton Working Mens Captain Adrian Small and his team mates got a nasty shock recently when their committee put a notice up informing them that their snooker room was being rented out to a nursery and that the tables were being removed almost immediately. Enquiries were made at Byfleet Village Club but in their wisdom they decided that they didn't want a snooker team at their club. HERSHAM SPORTS AND SOCIAL CLUB were more obliging and an arrangement has been made that Adrian and his team will be playing their home matches at this club. The details are: HERSHAM SPORTS AND SOCIAL CLUB, 128 Hersham Road, Walton On Thames, Surrey KT12 5QL. They were formally known as Hersham Comrades Club. Thank you to Steward John and the committee for stepping in to help us.

thumbCUESTAR SEAN HARVEY IS TIPPED FOR VICTORY BY JAMES CULLEN
November 21, 2018
ONE of the south’s finest amateur snooker players has won his first regional tournament following a two-and-a-half-year break from the game. Surrey star Sean Harvey pocketed £200 prize money after clinching the third leg of the Cuestars Championship Tour in style in Havant. The 33-year-old from Longcross compiled the day’s highest break of 121 in the deciding frame of his 2-1 victory over Mark Lloyd (Gosport) in the final. And, remarkably, he hadn’t even played one shot with his new tip before the event hosted and sponsored by Top Spot Snooker Club. Harvey took the opening frame with a break of 60 but missed a black off its spot on a run of 39 in the next. New rankings leader Lloyd replied with a 44 and eventually squared the match on the colours. But the 19-year-old former national junior champion, who collected £100, was destined to have only one more shot. He broke off in the decider. Harvey fired in a long red and by the time he left the table only pink and black remained and 121 points were on the scoreboard. Harvey reckoned his friend James Cullen had done a “good job” fitting the new tip. He said: “I managed to scrape through a few early frames and started knocking it in a bit. I just got better and better as I went on. “It’s always nice to win in one visit. That’s the aim every time I come to the table". “A couple of times during the day, I broke down on 50 or 60 when I shouldn’t have so it was nice to finally make a ton – especially in the decider of the final, off his break.” Explaining why he “didn’t hit a ball” for two-and-a-half years until May this year, Harvey, a winner of a string of amateur titles, said: “I’ve got two young kids, work and I just lost a bit of interest. “I got close a couple of times to getting on the (professional) tour. It was almost like I’d had my go, that’s it now.” And why did he return? “I missed it,” he simply said. Earlier, Harvey finished second in his four-man round-robin group after losing 2-1 to Pascal Richard (Gosport). And he nearly made a last-16 exit. His opponent Ryan Mears (Aldershot) missed a black over the pocket for 2-0. Ross Barker (Oxford) and 15-year-old Mickey Joyce (Basingstoke) picked up £55 each following 2-0 semi-final defeats by Lloyd and Harvey respectively. The 41-strong field returned 35 breaks of 50 or more. Salisbury Snooker Club hosts the fourth leg of eight on Sunday, December 16.

thumbALL AWAY TEAMS TO BREAK IN EVERY FRAME STARTS THIS THURSDAY
October 27, 2018
In every league match with effect from this Thursday November 1st until the end of the season all away teams are to break off in every frame. At the last committee meeting it was proposed to trial this until the end of the season and discussed again at January's league meeting. All teams are to follow this trial rule. No exceptions. Many Facebook posts appeared when it was first published, most of which had no or little foundation. As every team has the same number of home and away fixtures then it goes without saying that they will have exactly the same number of breaks. No team or player gets an unfair advantage or overall benefit. If after the trial period the majority of meeting attendees do not want this adopted then a vote will take place and the result of the vote will determine which way we go forward.
