Thanks to all who attended our presentation night at the Old Manor, especially to professional Allan Taylor who presented the trophies and played 12 frames with various league players and even a frame of scotch doubles. He started the evening against last years Wallasey Champion Danny Crawford and what a start! Allan had a fantastic 129 break just missing the black for a total clearance, he remained unbeaten until Danny played the last frame when he got revenge! Other breaks of 64,53,51 followed in various frames. As well as Danny, Craig Johnstone, Jamie Thompson Jnr, Ron Slater, Adam Noonan, Cory Harvey, Levi Griffiths, Phil Pilkington, Marc Daugherty and Liam Wharton who only lost by 12 played Allan.

Week 26 Century deducted 2 points as rule 34

After complaints regarding deterioration of etiquette during snooker matches, with some teams, regarding talking and standing in the line of sight while a player is playing his shot, please give all players quiet and respect when playing their matches. I would also like to remind everyone that anyone participating in a match, player or referee not to use their mobile phones as in rule 46 a points deduction could be applied to the team, so as a referee if you have to use your phone please ask a team mate to takeover refereeing until you've finished.

Also please turn them on to silent and or vibrate during snooker matches. Thanks

A reminder that the HOME team is responsible for providing a referee for EACH match, even if it means a home player refereeing a number of matches (a player cannot referee his own match). A rule will brought in to enforce this with a points deduction.

Some sad news that Alan Fenna who played in the league for many years has died, funeral details Monday 24th September 2018 at 1.30pm at Landican South Chapel and afterwards at the RNA club by Guinea Gap baths.


A club name change this season Withens Lane ( Sports & Social Club ) is the new name for the Wallasey Royal British Legion club.

Just to clarify the league rules, now it is just one division, it hasn't really changed, players can only play for the team they are registered for. Not for any team in their club. Previously with two divisions a player could play for another team in another division provided the team had the same name. For example a player registered for Manor Rd Cons in Div 2 could play for Manor Rd Cons in Div 1 but not for Liscard Cons although they're from the same Club, players also couldn't play twice in two different divisions in the same week.

The Handicaps have now been completed after an exhausting meeting, there are two more re-handicap dates, 29th Oct and 17th Dec, it will take a couple of re-handicapping meetings to get them as accurate as possible with the merging of the two divisions. Season starts on Tuesday and Thursday 4th & 6th Sept. Hopefully have an enjoyable season of snooker.



Correction in the fixture book for Week 4, Tuesday 25th September 2018. Should be Great Float v Sacred Heart and reversed on Week 19, 22nd January 2019. The website dates are correct.

The First Handicap meeting will take place on Friday 31st August 2018 @ 7pm, with the Committee meeting following at 8pm. Fixture books and result cards will be given out on the night. Each team is welcome to send a representative to the handicap meeting to have their say and possible vote.

Any late registrations please email or text me ASAP but BEFORE the meeting so I can print an up to date player list for each team on the night. Thanks

PLEASE NOTE THE FIXTURES WERE CHANGED TODAY 23RD JULY as Central Cons have now dropped out of the league, so to avoid having 2 byes the fixtures were redone, this will help reduce any consecutive matches as well.

The new seasons fixtures for 2018-19 are now on the website, with only ONE Division teams will play each other just once home and away. Some teams may have a number of consecutive home or away matches, unfortunately this is unavoidable by trying to fit in fixtures for Sacred Heart and also keeping the matches on Tuesday's.
