Tuesday Night Double-in League

It was a busy night for both divisions in the singles knockouts. With matches played up to the quarter-finals, the semi-finals and finals are to be played on finals night at the end of the season.

In division one there was a full complement of 32 players. Exciting games in the first round brought a good mix of winners.

In the first semi-final the Royal Oak’s Richard Ragless faces Chi Snooker A’s Adi Linfield. The second semi-final will see The Claremont’s Gary Blackwood take on Chi Snooker B’s Chris Gatford.

In division two there was the best turnout for years with 23 players taking part. With only a few surprises in the first round, the usual suspects made it through.

The Wheatsheaf’s Les Totham will take on Andy Cooper from The Cabin in one semi – Cooper scoring the only 180 of the night in his quarter-final. The second semi will be between the Old Barn’s Andy Kilvington and Tim McCarthy from the Richmond A.
