'Underdogs?....Magnificent!'

Summer Season 2011

Summer Season 2011

Finals Night this year was held on Saturday the 1st October
at Rileys Pool & Snooker Club, Magdalen Street, Norwich.


Let me tell you a story....... A mixed team of men and women, the "Magnificent Maids", who play pool purely for a good night out and who have in the past won the wooden spoon six times for finishing bottom of the league. Yes, six times, have won the 9-Ball Subsidiary Cup, their first ever cup win in all competitions! Their opponents, The Division 1 "Inbetweeners" from Costessey Cue Club, who thought they were in for a whitewash win over the Division 2 team, never once went ahead after the 8th frame. At 10 all there was visible anxiety from both teams until Carol Briggs for the "Maids", (with a league win rate of only 11% this season) stepped up and potted the last 9-Ball to take the win and the Cup. An astounded "Inbetweeners" team walked out of the venue after being beaten by the "Maids" without bothering to collect their runners-up trophies. Bad sportsmanship, it would appear, still thrives today in Costessey..... Well done the "Maids"!
