summer team ko final 2014

Summer League Team KO Final Result & Report 

Played at the Kennys Sportsbar on Sunday 14th September 2014


 Perkins Cue are the Summer League champions for a 7th time. Winners in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 and now 2014. This Final was a repeat of the 2012 final and the Cuemen were made to work hard for their 4-2 win over the Kennys Bear. They went 3-0 up in no time with Mike Barker (v Jim Simpson), Dave Barker (v Gav Davies) & Alan Sim (v Giles Eastwood) all winning. However Andy Rawlinson (v Dave Whitfield) then pulled one back and Giles Eastwood (v Martin Priestley) then made it 3-2. Rawlinson looked on course to level the match but a missed yellow let Dave Barker in and he potted a long black into the top corner to seal the trophy. The Final was played in great spirit with fine potting and safety play.

A thank you to both Lynda Simpson & Shaun Cooper for refereeing the Final.

agm & constitution amendments

Annual General Meeting held @Kennys Sportsbar on 3rd August 2014

TWO amendments to the Constitution were made, these were -

1. The '8 ball clearance' or 'dish' has changed. Instead of the current rules and provisos, the 8 ball clearance will NOW be based on the FIRST visit.

a. When a player breaks and DOESN'T pot a ball, and the opposite player then clears - THIS IS AN 8 BALL CLEARANCE

b. When a player breaks and goes 'in-off', and the opposite player then clears - THIS IS AN 8 BALL CLEARANCE

c. When a player breaks and hits the 'cue ball' off the table. The opposite player is awarded TWO Shots. However, if the player clears on the FIRST VISIT - THIS IS AN 8 BALL CLEARANCE 

d. When a player breaks and pots any ball/balls BUT goes 'in-off', and the opposite player then clears - THIS IS AN 8 BALL CLEARANCE

e. When a player breaks and makes a FOUL BREAK (i.e 4 balls not hitting a cushion). The balls are then re-racked and the opposite player breaks and clears on the FIRST VISIT - THIS IS AN 8 BALL CLEARANCE

2. In the Constitution it states that the draw is to be made by both teams by drawing lots. This has now changed and both teams can place their players in any order they wish for the first 4 games (first half) ONLY. The second half will be decided by the outcome of the first half placings of the draw.

Any questions / clarification regarding the above changes then email or contact the League Secretary.
