Final League's tables (Posted 12/11/06)
To all members

I like to take this opportunity to apologise for the delay in publishing the final league tables for all divisions. This was due to teams not fulfilling their season's fixtures, including the final week of the season. This results in their expulsion from the league and their second half of the season's results being expunged from the tables. To ensure this was done accurately, each division had to be re-checked before posting. This had a detrimental effect on the 'A' Division to which an appeal was heard and time allowed for a second appeal to the Royal Berkshire County. A further explanation can be found by following the link news appeal-28-10-06.

Finally, on behalf of the committee I would like to congratulate all winners and to wish all teams every success in the 2007 season.

F. Callaghan
Chairman

Week 24 Commentary (Posted 01/10/06)
There were relatively easy wins this week in Division A for Chiswick Wanderers and St. Augustine's B both winning 8 - 1, but narrow wins (5 - 4) for Leamington A over Eleusis Social Club and Windmill B over George & Devonshire. This leaves the table unchanged with St. Augustine's B on 34 points with 2 games left and Leamington A on 32 points with 3 games left. There is a new leader in Division B thanks to White Horse B beating O'Donoghue's A (5 - 4) it means the new leaders are St. Augustine's A (on frames difference). Both St. Augustine's A and O'Donoghue's A have 2 games left to play while White Horse B are 2 points behind but with 3 games left. It is also tight at the top of Division C thanks to Chiswick Dynamos winning 5 - 4 at St. Augustine's Tree. This means that British Prince are on 38 points, Chiswick Dynamos on 36 points and Shamrock Club on 35 points all with 3 games left to play.

There are new leaders of every Div this week.
In Division A St. Augustine's B are back on top after a convincing 7 - 2 win over Windmill B. In Division B the new leaders are White Horse B who followed up last weeks come back with another 'come from behind' 5 - 4 win over Hole in the Wall. O'Donoghue's B beat last weeks leaders O'Donoghue's A 7 - 2 (no love lost there!) enabling St. Augustine's A to go 2nd with an excellent away win 8 - 1 at Tournament. In Division C it is back to normal with British Prince on top over Laurie Arms who went down 5 - 4 at St. Augustine's Tree. There were wins for the other main contenders for this Division Chiswick Dynamos, Shamrock Club and Duke of Cornwall.
Week 19 Commentary (Posted 25/07/06)
It was definitely a week of close games with no fewer than 9 matches (out of 14) finishing 5 - 4.
There was little change in Division A but a special mention for Chiswick Wasps who were 4 - 0 down to Eleusis Social Club before staging a remarkable come back to win 5 - 4. Meanwhile George & Devonshire left their comeback too late, they were 5 - 0 down to Windmill A and eventually lost 5 - 4. St. Augustine's B also won 5 - 4 over Chiswick Wanderers who still can't believe the last shot of the night which saw St. Augustine's B captain get out of a snooker via 2 cushions to pot the black. In Division B the nearly 'top of the table' clash between O'Donoghue's B and White Horse B saw O'Donoghue's B go 4 - 1 up before eventually losing 5 - 4 to White Horse B. O'Donoghue's A had a comfortable 7 - 2 win over Studio Bridge & Social Club. Laurie Arms have gone back on top of Division C thanks to another 5 - 4 win over Shamrock Club. Duke of Cornwall missed the chance to overtake some of the leaders with a 5 - 4 loss to Queen Adelaide.
Denis Hyatt - A great loss (Posted 19/07/06)
Denis was the type of person that any league or association needed. "A larger than life Character" who was dedicated to the league he served so well for many years and so kind to me personally during all my health problems which restricted my league committee duties and later led to my resignation earlier this season.
The league have lost a "Big Man" and will find it hard to find another like him.
With all my respects.
John Bryant.

Cup Round 4 Commentary (Posted 12/07/06)
Round 4 saw a very good win by Shamrock Club (Div C) over Chiswick Wanderers (away) and an equally good win by O'Donoghue's A (Div B) over Pig & Whistle. As expected the Windmill B and Leamington A both won over Laurie Arms (Div C) and Hole in the Wall (Div B) respectively. That leaves 2 from Div A, 1 from Div B and 1 from Div C still in the cup.
Brackenbury Arms (Posted 12/07/06)
Brackenbury Arms has withdrawn from the league after week 18; they have not completed their fixtures for the 2nd half of the season so those results have been expunged from Division B. They completed the 1st half of the season so those results are included in the Division B table.

The other winners in this division were Leamington B, Eleusis Social Club, Chiswick Wasps and Windmill B. Division B saw the result of the week with Tommy Flynn's (Chiswick) beating the previous table leaders O'Donoghue's B 5 - 4. Good wins by White Horse B, Tournament, O'Donoghue's A and Hole in the Wall sees new leaders of the division in White Horse B but only 2 points separate the top 5 teams.

Week 16 Commentary (Posted 21/06/06)
At last a week of surprises with both Leamington A and St. Augustine's B losing 4 - 5 to Windmill B and White Horse A respectively. Chiswick Wasps took advantage of the fact that Chiswick Wanderers were not playing to move above them in Division A. In Division B a win by Hole in the Wall over league leaders O'Donoghue's B has narrowed the gap at the top so that only 4 points separate the top 6 teams. It was back to normal in Division C with the top 6 teams all winning at home against teams from the bottom half of the table.
Cup Round 3 Commentary (Posted 13/06/06)
Laurie Arms and Shamrock Club are still there representing Div C having had good wins 5 - 2 and 5 - 3 against the Div A sides Chiswick Wasps and Leamington B respectively, while the Div B remaining teams are Hole in the Wall and O'Donoghue's A who won away against Div A George & Devonshire. The other teams winning were Leamington A, Pig & Whistle, Chiswick Wanderers and Windmill B.
Week 15 Commentary (Posted 21/06/06)
Pride of place in the A Division this week goes to Windmill A who won at Pig & Whistle and so moved off the bottom of the Division, there is no change at the top. In Division B O'Donoghue's B had a whitewash over Hope & Anchor but the significant game was won by O'Donoghue's A away at Tournament, which results in 4 teams on 20 points St. Augustine's A, O'Donoghue's A, White Horse B and Tournament with O'Donoghue's B 4 points clear at the top. No change in Division C with British Prince, Laurie Arms, Shamrock Club, Chiswick Dynamos and Duke of Cornwall all winning away from home. St. Augustine's Tree had there match postponed because Greyhound is temporarily closed.
Next Council Meeting (Posted 11/06/06)
The next council meeting is on 2nd July in the White Horse. This is extra to the original list at the start of the season. Please remember to attend and bring completed questionnaires for the mini-league.
Week 14 Commentary (Posted 24/05/06)
As the second half of the season got underway there were some interesting results this week.
In Division A Windmill B failed to take advantage of the fact the top 2 teams were not playing by losing at home to Chiswick Wanderers, there were also good wins by Chiswick Wasps, Cowshed, George & Devonshire and Leamington B but the only change in positions was a swopping of Chiswick Wasps and Eleusis Social Club. In Division B Tournament surprisingly lost at home to Duke of York and Tommy Flynn's (Chiswick) won their first game away at Brackenbury Arms. There were no other surprises and O'Donoghue's B are still top of the division. It is a case of all change at the top of Division C because the top 6 teams were all playing each other. Wins by British Prince over Laurie Arms, Chiswick Dynamos over Duke of Cornwall and Shamrock Club over St. Augustine's Tree has produced a new look to the table with British Prince on top for the first time but they are only 4 points in front of Duke of Cornwall in 6th place.
There will be no games next week due to the Bank Holiday.
Week 13a Commentary (Half way point of the League) (Posted 20/05/06)
In Division A the only movers were Chiswick Wasps who, by beating Eleusis Social Club, went above White Horse A. In Division B wins by both St. Augustine's A and White Horse B saw them move above Hole in the Wall. In Division C wins by British Prince, Shamrock Club & Kent House Social Club saw all three rise in the division.
By coincidence the leaders in Div A Leamington A & St. Augustine's B, in Div B O'Donoghue's B & Tournament and in Div C Laurie Arms & British Prince all have 20 points.
Week 13 Commentary (Posted 20/05/06)
There was very little change in Division A with wins for 5 of the top 6 teams, Leamington, St. Augustine's B, Windmill B, Chiswick Wanderers, and White Horse A. There was no game for the other team, Eleusis Social Club. In Division B the main loser was White Horse B who slipped 2 places due to St. Augustine's A beating them 5 - 4 and Hole in the Wall narrowly beating the much improved Studio Bridge & Social Club. In Division C it remains tight at the top with St. Augustine's Tree and British Prince both losing 6 - 3 away to Kent House and Queen Adelaide respectively. Duke of Cornwall not playing has let Laurie Arms regain top spot with a resounding 7 - 2 away win at Pump House (who are now playing home games at Clarence).
We reach halfway in the league next week with only 2 games in Div A, 2 games in Div B and 3 games in Div C.

In Division A Leamington A and St. Augustine's B have opened up a 6 point gap at the top of the table which will take a bit of closing although Windmill B have a game in hand. The top of the table clash in Division B saw O'Donoghue's B victorious over Tournament 5 - 4 while O'Donoghue's A won at Tommy Flynn's to keep up the pressure. Thanks to St. Augustine's Tree 7 - 2 win over last weeks leaders Duke of Cornwall there are now 4 teams level on points at the top of Division C, the 2 already mentioned plus Laurie Arms and British Prince (who have a game in hand).

Week 11 Commentary (Posted 14/04/06)
The only movement in Division A was by the White Horse A who leapt up 3 places by beating Leamington B. Leamington A and St. Augustine's B each has a four point gap over Eleusis Social Club. In Division B O'Donoghue's B are back on the top (on frames difference) thanks to a 0 - 9 win over Duke of York while Tournament only beat Brackenbury Arms 7 - 2. In Division C it is a case of 'all change' with Duke of Cornwall on the top closely followed by St. Augustine's Tree, British Prince (who have a game in hand) and Laurie Arms.
Week 10 Commentary (Posted 04/04/06)
Another good win by Windmill B, this time at Eleusis Social Club, and an equally good win by George & Devonshire over Chiswick Wanderers sees St. Augustine's B regaining second spot in Division A. In Division B some real shock results including O'Donoghue's B losing at home to Studio Bridge & Social Club, this has meant Tournament go top of the Division. In Division C a defeat for Duke of Cornwall at British Prince and a win for St. Augustine's Tree over Ravenscourt Arms sees St. Augustine's Tree as the new leaders of the Division. Result of the Week must be Wilton Arms losing at 1 - 8 to Greyhound.

In Division B a good win by Tournament over top of the table White Horse B and an equally good win by O'Donoghue's B at St. Augustine's A has meant O'Donoghue's B are the new leaders of the division. Division C saw Duke of Cornwall come back from 1 - 3 down to win 5 - 4 over Laurie Arms while Joanna Combes must be inspiring St. Augustine's Tree. A good 2 - 7 win by British Prince at Chiswick Dynamos sees them keeping the pressure on the teams above them.
Week 8 Commentary (Posted 22/03/06)
No surprises this week in Division A with the top 4 teams all winning.
