SWDSL Newsletter – January 2014

Dear League Member,

The Committee wish you all a very Happy New Year.  January is a busy month for the league so we shall try and keep this Newsletter as brief as possible!

Second Half of the League Season and Updated Handicaps
The Four Player Division recommences w/c Monday 6 January 2014 with the Three Player Division w/c Monday 13 January 2014.  The Updated Handicaps List is now online and we ask that all team captains ensure that a copy is displayed in their Club and that their own players are aware of their new handicap.

At the half way stage, BSSC B currently lead the Three Player Division on 51 points, 6 points ahead of Saffron Snooker Pockets B who are in second place on 45 points and Sawbridgeworth USC Bandits in third place on 43 points.  Legion Tornados and Saffron Snooker Spiders are also both on 43 points.  The Three Player Division High Break is currently 86 by Adam Ingram.

In the Four Player Division, Saffron Snooker Flukes have regained top spot from Sawston Jets (due to more matches won) who are both on 32 points.  Both teams are closely followed by Widdington Warriors on 31 points and Newport A on 29 points.  The Four Player Division High Break is currently 51 by Jeremy Jones.
