Bil­liards League set for 21st sea­son


THE Mac­cles­field and Dis­trict Bil­liards League kicks off for its 21st sea­son on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 1.

As last year, seven teams will be com­pet­ing in this “com­ing of age” sea­son, with a sec­ond team from Sun­der­land Street Sport­ing Club com­ing in to fill the gap left by the un­for­tu­nate with­drawal of Mottram Vil­lage Club.

Last year’s league hon­ours went to Dis­ley Golf Club as cham­pi­ons for the first time, with the ever-com­pet­i­tive Sun­der­land Street as run­ners-up.

In the knock­out cup fi­nal Sun­der­land Street tri­umphed over Silk­town Snooker Cen­tre.

The Tom Burgess in­di­vid­ual knock­out win­ner was Matt Fur­ni­val, who beat Andy Draper in a closely-fought fi­nal.

The Player of the Year award went to the pop­u­lar Jim Hunt of Dis­ley.

Any team or in­di­vid­ual wish­ing to take part in the league should con­tact David Whal­ley (01625 266625), Ge­of­frey Yeo­mans (01663 763012) or Nor­man Rout­ledge (01625 425783).
