THE DRAW FOR THE 1/4 FINAL HAS BEEN MADE BY STEVE ULMAN & PAUL GUDGEON WITH ALL GAMES BEING PLAYED ON THURSDAY 2 OCTOBER GAMES START AT 8.00. THE DRAW CAN BE FOUND IN THE COMPETITIONS SECTION. JUST TO CLARIFY THE CUSHION RULE. AFTER THE WHITE HAS STRUCK THE OBJECT BALL A BALL THEN MUST TOUCH A CUSHION OR A BALL BE POTTED. YOU CAN'T ROLL THE WHITE OFF THE CUSHION BEHIND A BALL UNLESS AFTER CONTACT WITH THE BALL ANOTHER BALL HITS A CUSHION.

NEW PLAYER REGISTRATIONS

SEVERAL TEAMS HAVE 'REGISTERED' NEW PLAYERS BY TEXT. THE REGISTRATION FEE MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE LEAGUE WITHIN 7 DAYS. IF THE FEE IS NOT RECEIVED WITHIN 7 DAYS THE REGISTRATION WILL BECOME INVALID THEREFORE THE TEAM WILL BE PLAYING AN ILLEGAL PLAYER. POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED AND FINES IMPOSED.

NEW RULE - OPEN BREAK

WHEN A PLAYER BREAKS 4 BALLS MUST TOUCH A CUSHION AND/OR A COLOUR  MUST BE POTTED. FAILURE TO DO THIS IS A FOUL BREAK AND THE OPPONENT WILL BE AWARDED 2 SHOTS OR THE BALLS WILL BE RE-RACKED WITH THE OTHER PLAYER TO BREAK. IF THE WHITE BALL IS POTTED FROM THE BREAK IT IS ONLY 1 SHOT TO THE OPPONENT (NOT 2) AS LONG AS 4 BALLS HAVE TOUCHED THE CUSHION OR A COLOUR HAS BEEN POTTED. IF THE WHITE BALL LEAVES THE TABLE DURING THE BREAK IT IS 2 SHOTS. WHEN A RED BALL HAS BEEN POTTED THE PLAYER MAY STILL NOMINATE YELLOWS AND VICE-VERSA. IF THE REFEREE IS IN DOUBT HE MUST ASK THE PLAYER WHICH COLOUR HE INTENDS TO PLAY.

TEXTING IN RESULTS

STARTING THURSDAY 14 OCTOBER 2010 I WOULD LIKE BOTH HOME AND AWAY TEAMS TO TEXT THE RESULT OF THE MATCH IN TO THE USUAL NUMBER ON THE RESULT CARD. IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING WHEN SOME OF THE HOME TEAMS FAIL TO TEXT THE RESULT IN SO HOPEFULLY THIS WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND ALLOW ME TO UPDATE THE LEAGUE TABLES ON FRIDAY MORNING.
