To all Delegates, Captains and players of the Southport Snooker League, the committee want to take this opportunity to inform you it what is going on in regards to the completion of the league and further progress towards the start of the new season ahead of us.

As you are well aware the resumption of the league is still many weeks, if not months away from returning, and we still have four rounds of fixtures in the 1st & 2nd divisions to be played out yet. We believe that we can get these outstanding rounds of fixtures completed to give closure to this current season and feel that this would be fair to the teams and players within the league and to the integrity of the competition.

We have several scenarios that we can play out to complete the season but all of them come down to when we are allowed to return to the safe and social mixing we had before the Covid-19 lockdown. These vary from a later start to the next season, a shortening of the fixtures to the 1st & 2nd divisions or even the possibility of closing this season down as is, but nothing has been agreed to yet. Likewise the Individual and team cup competitions will be left open for now, again, we would like to complete all of the outstanding fixtures and rounds as well.

Ultimately the Government has to advise us that it is safe to return to a socially acceptable way to live and to the re-opening of the clubs that we support and play snooker in. I will endeavour to keep you all in the loop as to when this will happen but there is no time limit to that at the moment. So let’s hope we are all back on the green baize sooner rather than later. Keep safe, stay well, and keep smiling…


Many thanks...

Chris
