Summer Season 2013
Summer Season 2013
Finals Night this year was held on Saturday the 28th September at Rileys Pool & Snooker Club, Magdalen Street, Norwich.
This was the first season with the top two divisions playing the new BAPTO 'Blackball' rules and the new 3rd Division playing the old 'pub rules', and all went well. Many teams and supporters turned up for what turned out to be an excellent night. Five different winners of the five competitions played on the night from all divisions. The main Blackball Cup was won in style with an 8-5 victory by The Blues against the Hotshots after trailing until 5 all. The Temple Bar swept the table 11-3 versus the Hotshots, who come into the Premier Division for the first time next season. We all have to start somewhere so better luck next time. Rileys Potter, who have also just been promoted to the Premier Division, won the 9 Ball Subsidiary Cup with an 11-5 comfortable win over the Westlegate Specimens. In the new Division 3, both the Jailbirds and the Griffin Growlers who came first and second respectively in the division were in action. In the 9 Ball, the Growlers narrowly beat their arch rivals the Jailbirds by 11 frames to 9. What a scorcher! But in the 8 Ball Cup it all came awry as the Old Palace Hero's (who finished third in the division) put one over on the Growlers, beating them by a very respectable 8 frames to 5. All in all, a good night!
