Harrow Inter-League Tournament – Saffron Walden Bow Out In Semi-Finals

Following a great run, our SWDSL team bowed out of the tournament in their Semi Final match against Harrow ‘A’ 7-5.

With the match at 7-3 and only 2 frames remaining, having had a 3 hour drive to attend the match, Dunmow Club’s Stuart Turner was hoping to restore some pride for the league by playing against Harrow’s last player, none other than the 1977 UK Snooker Champion Patsy Fagan.  Unfortunately for Stuart, the tables were quickly cleared and the match balls were put away…seems Patsy was running scared!

Harrow Inter-League Tournament – Tense Finish To Saffron Walden First Round Win

Congratulations to our SWDSL team in winning the first round knock out match of the Harrow & District Snooker League – Inter-League Tournament 7-5 against Goffs Oak Comrades Club.

The team started well taking an early 2-0 lead with Mickey Cushion on form.  Jonathan Wells and Russell Huxter both added to the tally with a frame each to help bring the score to 4-2.  Captain Adam Ingram also produced some good snooker to catapult the team further into the lead and a win looked assured.  But leading 6-2 and only requiring 1 frame for victory from the remaining 4 frames, Graham Driver unexpectedly lost both frames and the match stood at 6-4.  Coming on last, Stuart Turner lost his first frame and Goffs Oak were back in the match trailing 6-5 and needed the final frame to level at 6-6 and to force a deciding frame.  Fortunately Stuart produced the sort of snooker he is more than capable of and powered his way to a convincing frame win to secure a 7-5 victory for the team.  Overall a worthy win for the SWDSL team, well done lads!

We will update the website once the draw has been done for the next round and advise date/venue etc for the next match.
