sunday ladies singles champion
SUNDAY POOL LADIES SINGLES FINALS NIGHT 2014
Held @Kennys Sportsbar, Stafford on Sunday 5th October 2014
Charlotte Shelley became the 'Stafford Ladies Singles Champion' for the 3rd time in 4 years. With victories in 2011 & 2013 she was made to work hard for her win over a determined Lynda Simpson who also has been champion in 2012. This was Lynda's 3rd final and 2nd against Charlotte, so they had alot of respect for each others game. Lynda won the first frame, as both players took time to settle. The 2nd frame was a different story as Lynda had the first chance and was very close to potting the black coming off the side rail but unfortunately missed. Charlotte with 7 yellows and the black took them on and showed great skill with the cueball to clear the table and level at 1-1. The next 2 frames were shared with little fuss. So it went to a best of 3 and nerves started to show as both players started to miss crucial pots. But it was Charlotte who took it by the scruff of the neck and won the match with a long black into the top corner to lift the crown. A good size crowd witnessed a good final played in great spirit and congratulations to both players on their performance.
Also well done to all the other ladies who entered this competition. Also a thank you to both Shaun Cooper & Dave Whitfield for refereeing the Final.
Full results are -
Clair Maslin (Kennys Potters) 0-3 Charlotte Shelley Morrisman); Pippa Steele (Luckpenny) 2-3 Jennie Clarke (Hop Pole D).

a.g.m. & 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.top
