Following two incidents that occurred during a League Cup Match between the Bishop’s Stortford Royal British Legion Rogues and the Saffron Snooker Flukes at Saffron Snooker Club on Wednesday 12 January 2017, unfortunately the Rogues have decided to withdraw from the Three Player Division with immediate effect.
An Emergency Committee Meeting was held on Sunday 15 January 2017 to discuss the incidents that took place and having reviewed the evidence in detail from witnesses present on the night and written statements from those involved, the Committee unanimously agreed to give life time bans to Kevin O’Neill and Nicholas Griggs from any further involvement with the DMC Leisure Saffron Walden & District Snooker League. The remaining registered players are more than welcome to register for new teams and continue playing for the rest of the season. Please could their new Captains inform us via the New Player Registration Form on the website.
As a result of the Rogues withdrawal from the Three Player Division, all of their first half league results have now been expunged and taken off of the league table. The fixtures have also been updated to include an extra free week for all teams. Due to the fact that league cup, league and tournament matches have since taken place using the second half handicaps, these will not be altered to reflect the matches expunged.
Should any league members wish to discuss the above further, then please do not hesitate to contact either the Chairman, Dan Lewis, or the League Secretary, Simon Chapman.
