'Yo-yo’s taught a lesson on the Live Stream’
Court Snapbacks took on the Postie Yo-yo’s this week, 25th October, in the Jet sponsored Wednesday League’s featured YouTube live streamed match, and although Perry Saunders and Kev Pike took a frame a-piece for the Yo-yo’s to go 2-1 up, their team may as well have put their cues away for the remainder of the match because, the Snapbacks took the remaining 12 frames in a row. Yo-yo’s had their chances on a few occasions to advance however, the class between the two teams told in the end and, the Snapbacks made no mistake in taking their chances to secure an extremely comprehensive win in the end which still leaves them 1 point clear at the top of the table while the Yo-yo’s drop down to 8th.
Final Score: Court Snapbacks 13 – 2 Postie Yo-yo’s
An All-Court affair took place between In The Act and Gimme A Break. By the 10th frame, Gimme A Break were 7-3 up, including a ‘break & dish’ by John Roe, needing just the one more frame for the match win – no pressure on Court In The Act then! In The Act’s Ben Peppercorn and Peter Ransome pulled two frames back before Ian Lea for Gimme A Break halted their come-back and secured the match in the 13th. In the Act did take the last two frames as well to make the overall score as close as it can possibly be but this narrow defeat for them in the end, sees Court In The Act drop to 4th while Court Gimme A Break move up to 3rd in the table. Final Score: Court In The Act 7 – 8 Court Gimme A Break
Court Young-un’s secured their first win of the season when playing away to one of the league’s new teams, the Borough Boys. By the end of the second session, the Young-un’s were sitting on a comfortable 7-3 lead needing just the one more for the match win. With Ewan Peacock taking the 11th to reduce the deficit for the Boys, things were looking brighter however, that really was as good as it got because the Young-un’s made no mistake with the last 4 frames by taking all of them, including young Tyler Clues securing the all important 12th. This now sees the Young-un’s move up to 5th and the Borough Boys still holding on to 9th spot in the table.
Final Score: Borough Boys 4 – 11 Court Young-un’s
Court Jesters made easy work of visitors, the Parkway, with a very comprehensive win. Tracey Allen registered their first frame in the 7th for the Parkway and Reg Miller also took a consolation frame in the 13th but overall, this Jesters comfortable victory, which included Chris Horn securing a ‘break & dish’ in the 4th and Mick Defraine making sure of the match in the 9th, now sees them tied in 2nd place and the Parkway at the foot of the table, still looking to secure their first win of the season.
Final Score: Court Jesters 13 – 2 Parkway
PSL Aint Going Down certainly made home advantage count when taking on Court At The Bar. The first session went to the PSL team 4-1 and they went on to repeat that same score-line in the 2nd session as well, with Tony Clark securing his team’s match win in the 10th. Paul Machin and Tyler Fitter pulled two frames back for At The Bar but, with PSL then taking the last 3, this ended as a good night’s work for the PSL team seeing them move up to 6th spot, while At The Bar drop to 7th in the table.

'Gold not overawed by the Legends'
The Stanground Carpets & Flooring sponsored Thursday League’s featured YouTube live streamed match saw the Court Gold host the Court Legends. This match swung one way then the other throughout, with the first session going to Gold 3-2 only to then see the Legends square up the match in the second session by taking it 3-2 themselves. Matt Goodale put the Legends in front for the first time in the 11th but, Gold never looked back after that by securing all 4 of the remaining frames, including Ady Bonsor taking the match winning 14th. This now sees Gold move up to 4th, albeit it still with a match in hand, and also sees the Legends relinquish top spot by dropping to 2nd. Final Score: Court Gold 9 – 6 Court Legends.
Heron Warlords welcomed the Quinns Muppets and the Muppets, at 7-3, were sitting on a comfortable lead going into the final session. Any idea that the Warlords still had a chance to win the match though were quickly extinguished when the Muppets Joe Haywood and Anthony Pask took their chances to secure the match win however, with Gareth Mears, Liz Dizney and Dee Coogan all taking their final frames for the Warlords, the match ended much closer than it was starting to look. The Muppets in 3rd have now increased the daylight between themselves and 4th spot, but this loss also sees the Warlords drop one place to 5th.
Final Score: Heron Warlords 6 – 9 Quinns Muppets.
PSL Lions were up against Court Fat Wanna Be Slim and, with both teams prior to this still without a win this season, this was always going to be a crucial match for both. It was ‘honours even’ by the end of the second session, including a ‘break & dish’ from Paolo Batista, setting things up nicely for the final session. Paolo Batista and Roy Hasdell, for the Lions, then took a frame each leaving them needing just the one more for the match win. Although Wanna Be Slim’s Ewan Peacock did pull a frame back, the Lions D. Clark then stepped up to get his team over the final hurdle in the 14th, a much needed and yet very close victory, in the end. The Court team now move off the foot of the table into 9th and the Lions too move up one place, into 8th.
Final Score: PSL Lions 8 – 7 Court Fat Wanna Be Slim.
Cross Keys Silver, were looking to make an ‘advance on the summit’ when hosting the Court Posties and, in the end, they ended up with only being one frame short of a perfect score in their attempt to do just that. It took until the 13th frame for the Posties to register a frame win via Craig Harbisher and in doing so, stopping the white-wash over his team but, that really was as good as it got for them. Silver took the final two frames as well and this very comprehensive win sees Silver move to the top of the table with a nice amount of daylight between themselves and 2nd spot. The Posties now see themselves slip to the foot of the table.
Final Score: Cross Keys Silver 14 – 1 Court Posties.
Court Larking About were up against visitors, Bluebell R Back and it was the visitors who stormed into a 4-1 lead by the end of the first session. With not wanting to let home advantage slip, Larking About then came right back into the match by taking the next 5 in a row, including a ‘break & dish’ by Scott Beasley. The Bluebell’s Danny May narrowed the deficit in the 11th however, with 3 in a row from the Court team then being taken, including Ivan Knight securing the match in the 13th, this match ended with a reasonable amount of daylight between the two teams on the night. The teams have now swapped places in the table with Larking About up to 6th and Bluebell down to 7th.
Final Score: Court Larking About 9 – 6 Bluebell R Back.

'No break given to Parkway’
Court Gimme A Break visited the Parkway team this week, 18th October, in the Jet sponsored Wednesday League’s featured You-tube live streamed match. Gimme A Break made easy work of the first 5 frames in a row and then Reg Miller for Parkway, stepped up and halted the slide briefly by taking the 6th frame. However, even more pressure was then heaped onto the Parkway team with Gimme A Break taking the next two in a row, needing only one more for victory, which came in the form of Beckie Watkins taking the 10th. The final session was a close affair, a 3-2 in favour of Gimme A Break giving the Court team a very comfortable night’s work overall. This leaves Parkway at the foot of the table while Gimme A Break, tie in 2nd place with two other teams.
Final Score: Parkway 4 – 11 Court Gimme A Break.
The Court Young Un’s took on the Court Jesters and the first session ended in favour of the Jesters with Steve Singh completing a ‘break & dish’ in the 5th. Andy Cook for the Young Un’s levelled the match up in the 6th but any ideas the Young Un’s had that this would be a close match, quickly evaporated when the Jesters raced ahead by taking the next 6 in a row and along with it the team win being confirmed in the 11th by Darren Hope. Mitchel Garner and Ivan Knight took two consolation frames in the final session but it was the Jesters who walked away from the match the happiest leaving them tied in 2nd spot and, the Young Un’s in 7th.
Final score Court Young Un’s 5 – 10 Court Jesters.
The Postie YoYo’s first home match of the season turned out to be a very comfortable night over their visitors, the Borough Boys. The YoYo’s advance was halted in the 5th frame by the Boys Ewan Peacock and with the next 4 frames split 2 a-piece, it was anyone’s guess where this was to end up but, with the YoYo’s wanting to make home advantage count, they were once again on the march and took the next 4 in a row and along with it, the match win courtesy of Perry Saunders. All in all though, a good night’s work for the Postie YoYo’s seeing them move up to 6th and the Boys sit below them in 9th, in the table.
Final score: Postie YoYo’s 11 – 4 Borough Boys
Another all-Court affair saw At The Bar take on the Snapbacks and the highlight of the first session were the ‘break & dish’ frames by the Snapbacks Sean Hackett and Jamie Stokes but despite that, going into the middle session Court At The Bar were only the single frame down. The snapbacks went up another gear by taking the next 4 frames in a row leaving them needing only one more frame to take the match. Tyler Fitter did pull another frame back for At The Bar but almost inevitably, the Snapbacks were on the charge once again by taking 3 of the last 5 frames in the final session, Sean Hackett confirming the team win in the 11th. This leaves the Snapbacks with a slender one point advantage at the top of the table while At The Bar, are currently in 5th spot.
Final Score: Court At The Bar 5 – 10 Court Snapbacks.
PSL Ain’t Going Down welcomed Court In The Act from across the city and this match was certainly the tale of the 3-2’s! This was the score-line across all 3 sessions with advantage going to In The Act, across all 3. Chris Page confirmed the match win for In The Act as late on as the 13th frame and, although each session was close, the overall result suggests a fairly comfortable match win in the end for the Court team, leaving them tying in 2nd spot in the table, and with the PSL team down in 8th.
Final Score: PSL Aint Going Down 6 – 9 Court At The Bar

'The Legends debut on the Live Stream’
The Stanground Carpets & Flooring sponsored Thursday League’s featured You-tube live streamed match saw the Court Legends play host to the PSL Lions and, the Lions knew they were up against it from the off by not replying once to the first 6 frames taken by the Legends. The Lions D. Clark and Roy Hasdell did finally register their first two frames in the 7th and 8th but, Darren Hope confirmed the win as early on as the 10th and the legends then almost whitewashed the Lions in the final session taking it 4-1. A very convincing with for the Leagues new boys which now places them clear at the top of the table albeit by the single point and the Lions, down in 9th.
Final Score: Court Legends 12 – 3 PSL Lions.
Court Posties played host to Bluebell R Back and no better start can you have to a match, than with a ‘break & dish’ that was performed by the Bluebell’s Andy Cooke. Then a match of ‘nip & tuck’ ensued with the Bluebell team going into a 3-2 lead after the first session only for the Posties then to take the next 3 in a row to go into the lead for the first time. Bluebell, not to be outdone, then stepped up and took the next 6 in a row and along with it the team win confirmed by Andy Cooke, with the Posties Kev Boon picking up the consolation 15th frame. A relatively easy win in the end for the Bluebell team that now places them 5th in the table and the Posties in 8th.
Final Score: Court Posties 6 – 9 Bluebell R Back.
Court Fat Wanna Be Slim were up against the Heron Warlords from the other side of the city and with a very comfortable first session win for the Warlords, the Court team then came back and took the second session making it a much closer match going into the last session. However, the comeback for the Wanna Be Slim team was short lived because, the final session was a repeat score-line of the first and, with Liz Disney assuring her team of the win in the 12th and Graham Tilley’s ‘break & dish’ in the 13th, this turned out to be a very worthwhile journey for the Warlords to have made in the end, placing them now 4th in the table and the Court team lying in last spot.
Final Score: Court Fat Wanna Be Slim 5 – 10 Heron Warlords.
Quinns Muppets welcomed Cross Keys Silver to their neck of the woods and advantage immediately went to the visitors with them taking the first two frames of the match. The Muppets not wanting home advantage to slip then moved up a gear and took the next 5 frames opening up a sizable lead. The Sliver team were having none of it though and went one better themselves by taking the next 6 frames in a row and, along with it, the team win - confirmed by Tony Brown in the 13th. Len Donelly and Paul Dewey took the last two frames for the Muppets making this as close a final score as you can get. Cross Keys Silver and Quinns Muppets now sit 2nd and 3rd respectively in the table.
Final Score: Quinns Muppets 7 – 8 Cross Keys Silver.

'3 way tie at the top after first match of the new Winter Season’
The Jet sponsored Wednesday League had its first matches of the new Winter season this week, 11th October, and the featured You-tube live streamed match saw Court In The Act welcome the Parkway team. The Court team went into a 7-3 lead going into the final session of the night leaving Parkway in the unenviable position of needing all of the final 5 frames if they were to carve out a win. This wasn’t to be however with the Leagues ‘new boys’ repeating the same score-line of the first session of 4-1, which also included Terry Shaw confirming the win in the 11th and Ben Peppercorn achieving a ‘break & dish’ in the 14th giving the Court team overall a comfortable win in their debut season, which also sees them tie in first place in the league table.
Final score: Court In The Act 11 – 4 Parkway
Court Snapbacks took on PSL Aint Going Down and this was certainly a tale of the ‘break & dish’ with 4 being achieved overall - 2 to the Snapbacks via Jamie Stokes and Ian Fountain and honours going to Rob Mills for achieving both the remaining 2 for the PSL Team. Break & dish aside, although the Snapbacks just nicked the first session 3-2, they then breezed through the next 6 frames in a row with Jamie Stokes confirming the win in the 10th. Mick Priest and Rob Mills took 2 consolation frames in the last session for PSL but this ended as a relatively easy win for the Snapbacks seeing them tie at the top, at this very early stage of the season.
Final score: Court Snapback 11 – 4 PSL Aint Going Down
Borough Boys hosted Court At The Bar and by the 9th frame the Boys found themselves 7-2 down and with a mountain to climb. With the Boys then taking the 10th and 11th frames, was a comeback against all the odds on the cards? Sadly no because, At The Bar halted the Boys advance by taking the final 4 frames of the session, including Michael Harrison confirming the win in the 12th. With this being a debut season too for the Borough Boys, this also sees Court At The Bar ending the match tying in first place – plenty of time to go yet for both teams.
Final score: Borough Boys 4 – 11 Court At The Bar
Postie Yo-Yo’s took the short hop across to the Court Jesters and from the final placings of the end of the Summer League, this was effectively ‘top versus bottom’. The Jesters certainly started off with a ‘business as usual’ approach with Darren Hope completing a ‘break & dish’ in the 9th and Lee McShane confirming the win as early on as the 10th frame - Gordon Wilks and Kev Pike managing to take a frame a-piece for the YoYo’s, all by the end of the second session. Whilst the Jesters then took the first two frames of the final session, the YoYo’s rallied to then take the final 3 frames in a row leaving the Jesters with a win albeit not as damaging to the YoYo’s as might have been expected.
Final score: Court Jesters 10 – 5 Postie Yoyo’s
Court Gimme A Break took on the Court Young’uns and this was a much closer affair than all the other matches played out tonight. The highlight of the first session for the Young’uns, although they lost it 3-2, was Ben Baker completing a ‘break & dish’. In fact, the score-line of 3-2 was mirrored in the remaining two sessions with Gimme A Break just nicking them on all occasions – Grant Watson finally confirming the win as late on as the 13th frame.
Final score: Court Gimme A Break 9 – 6 Court Young’uns

‘Cross Keys Silver set the early pace’
The Stanground Carpets & Flooring sponsored Thursday League also had its first matches of the new Winter season this week, 12th October, and while Cross Keys Silver’s opponents certainly didn’t have an easy ride overall, Court Fat Wanna Be Slim certainly take first prize for the most colourful and inventive team name! Back to the business at hand though, and Silver made no mistake in making their mark on the first game of the season and, although Wanna Be Slim’s Ewan Peacock and Nick Smith took two consolation frames in their team’s debut season within the PWR, this was a very comprehensive win overall for Silver, which included Mick Defraine confirming the win in the 10th, leaving them clear at the top of the table at this very early stage in proceedings.
Final score: Cross Keys Silver 13 – 2 Court Fat Wanna Be Slim
The featured You-tube live streamed match saw Court Larking About take on the Court Posties, and by the 10th frame the Posties were still in touch at only 6-4 down going into the final session. However, Larking About’s John Roe then confirmed the team win in the 12th with a ‘break & dish’ followed by a further two frames out of the last 3 for the Court team giving them a relatively easy ride over their opponents.
Final score: Court Larking About 10 – 5 Court Posties
Bluebell R Back welcomed the Quinns Muppets from the other side of the city and this turned into a journey well worth making for the Muppets. They just shaded each of the first two sessions 3-2 leaving the Bluebell team a not too big a mountain to climb if they were to get a home victory. It wasn’t to be though as the Muppets raised the bar even further by winning the last session 4-1 including Anthony Pask confirming the team win in the 12th - giving the Muppets a relatively easy victory over Bluebell.
Final score: Bluebell R Back 5 – 10 Quinns Muppets
Heron Warlords were hosts to the last of the debut teams for the Thursday league in this new winter season, the Court Legends and as the name suggests, there is more than just the odd decade or two of combined ‘playing years’ between the players in this particular team, and a fine start to their season they made too. Advantage went to the home team in the first session taking it 3-2 suggesting this was going to be a pretty close throughout however, never judge a book by its cover! The Legends then raised the bar by taking the next 6 frames in a row, including Nicky Parnell confirming the team win in the 11th frame but, although the match was already lost for the Warlords, they did halt the slide briefly with wins from Ian Lea and Graham Tilley making the overall results a little more respectable. Overall though this was a comfortable win in the end for the league’s new boys.
Final score: Heron Warlords 5 – 10 Court Legends
With Court Gold on their travels to PSL Lions, Gold were looking to carry on from where they left off at the end of the Summer League and make a bid for another league title in this Winter League and, by winning the first session 4-1, things were looking good. Paolo Batista did pull another frame back for the Lions but, Gold were soon on the charge again taking the next 4 frames in a row and along with it, the team win which was confirmed by Andy Bunton in the 10th. Paolo Batista and Martin Edgley took two further frames for the Lions in the final session but, Gold, in the end, breezed through to their first win of this new season with all eyes now firmly fixed on the boys currently at the top, Cross Keys Silver.
Final score: PSL Lions 4 – 11 Court Gold
