IMPORTANT NOTICE - Postponement of Warrington Snooker League

Following the governement announcement this afternoon advising the general public to avoid pubs, clubs and other social venues unless essential, I regretfully announce that all forthcoming matches in the Warrington Snooker League will be postponed until further notice due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

I understand many of you will be disappointed with this decision, especailly as we are so close to the end of the league season with semi finals and finals on the horizon however I do not feel comfortable carrying on these matches which are generally played in clubs that have hundreds of members including many that will be over the age of 70, who are the most vulnerbale at this time and with that reason I believe this is the only decision that can be made.

I will ensure that all captains and team representatives are notified as soon as possible and should you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your understanding.

Pat Wisedale

Team Championship Semi Final Results

Woolston 'A' beat Warrington Cons 'A'
The Grange beat Kings Club 'C'

The last 4 of the team championship took place yesteday evening and it was a tale of both division 1 sides getting the better of their division 2 opponents with both Woolston ‘A’ and The Grange progressing  through to what should be an excellent final, at the expense of Warrington Cons ‘A’ and Kings Club ‘C.

Both teams, having won 7 out of their 8 league games since the Christmas break, continued their fine form with victories meaning that Woolston ‘A’ keep their hopes of a league and cup double alive and The Grange (Richamonds ‘A’ last season) have a chance of retaining the trophy they won last season. Both of which would be fabulous achievements and makes it a final not to be missed.

Despite disappointment last night, Warrrington Cons ‘A’ put up a spirited and respectable performance and they still have the chance of completing a brilliant season themselves, as they are currently in with a great chance of promotion into the first division in second place of division 2.

Attempting to make into back to back finals of this tournament, Kings Club ‘C’ just came up short again against the lads from The Grange, having lost to them in the final last year. This shows the mark of an excellent team and to make the final and then semi final of this tournament in consecutive years is no mean feat and they should be applauded on their efforts.

The final is scheduled to be played on Tuesday 7th April and will be held at GESM.

Individual Merit Semi Final Results

Gary Lunn (Woolston 'A') 2-0 Brian Hall (The Grange)
Mike Chester (GESM 'A') 2-1 Pat Wisedale (GESM 'A')

After contrasting matches, congratulations go to both Gary Lunn and Mike Chester who last night won their respective semi-final ties to make it through to the Individual Merit Final, in what should be a fascinating match. 

Gary, who was in brilliant potting form raced through his match against Brian only missing a handful of shots in the two frames played. Brian, with his usual class was gracious in defeat, but could only watch on for most of the match whilst Gary was at the table. Sometimes you can't do much when the opponent is potting and scoring at a very high level and that is what occurred here as Gary put in an excellent performance.

Across the room, Mike and Pat were still halfway through their first frame as the other semi final came to its conclusion. The match, whilst not as high in potting standard on the whole, consisted of some excellent safety play from both players which was the prominent feature. The semi final went to a deciding frame after Pat, who was the only one of the four semi finalist to be making his debut at this stage of the competition, had cancelled out Mike's early lead. However whilst trying to get out of trouble, Mike took his big opportunity and knocked in a superb break of 48 in the last frame took the match away from Pat.

The final is scheduled to be played on Thursday 9th April and will be held at Kings Club.

Team Handicap Semi Final Results

Eagle Sports beat GESM 'C'
Kings Club 'A' beat Penketh Cons 'B'

Congratulations to both Eagle Sports & Kings Club 'A' who last night made it through to the team handicap final with victories over GESM 'C' and Penketh Cons 'B' respectively making it an all first division final. Both teams put recent bad results behind them in the league to produce solid performances in the semi final and will now play each other twice in the space of the week as they also go head to head in their final league game on 26th March.

Commiserations to both GESM 'C' and Penketh Cons 'B' who should be proud of their efforts in getting to the semi finals in what is a difficult competition to win. Both teams will be hoping to finish the season strong with GESM 'C' in touching distance of gaining promotion to the first division, with a 5 point cushion currently at the top of division 2. As for Penketh Cons 'B' they are still in a very good postition in division 1 currently just outside the top 3 but with a great chance of breaking into it should they have a strong finish to the season.

The final is scheduled to be played on Tuesday 31st March and will be held at GESM.

Alan Thomas (ART)

It is with great sadness that I write this post to inform you all that Alan Thomas (GESM B) has unfortunately passed away. As many of you know, Alan was a true gentleman and had a huge passion for snooker all of his life, having played and contributed to the Warrington snooker league for well over 50 years. He will be truly missed.

On a personal level I have known Alan since I was 15 years old and he was my first captain when I began playing in the snooker league at the time for the GESM B team. I will be sure to have a frame for 50p and a double grouse this weekend to celebrate the life of a top bloke.

For those interested, the funeral arrangements are as follows;
Tuesday 14th January 2020
10am - St Wilfrid's Church Grappenhall
11am - Walton Lea Crematorium
Flowers: Family Only
Donations: TBC

Our thoughts at this time are with Alan's family and close friends.

RIP Alan Thomas

Tuesday 3rd Setember 2019

As I am sure a few of you are aware all fixtures and team players have been uploaded onto the website under the 2019/20 tab. Please can all team representatives review and if you have any issues/queries please contact the comittee.

Please note some players who have played in the league during previous seasons may be showing as 'New Players'. The reason for this is due to one of the following;

  • Player has not yet particiapted 6 league games therefore still qualifies as a new player until they have played this number of games.
  • Returning player to the league after two full seasons away to have their handicap monitored as per the rule which was voted on at the AGM.

We are very close now to having all the books printed. I am sorry for the delay in not getting a date to collect these out as of yet but this will be very soon. The league season will commence the week of Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th September.

Many thanks
Pat Wisedale
