'Wow! What a Night'
Winter Season 2013/14
Winter Season 2013/14
Finals Night this year was held on Saturday the 12th April at Rileys Pool & Snooker Club, Magdalen Street, Norwich.
What a night indded! Probably the best finals we have had since the league began many years ago. The atmosphere was electric and the teams didn't disappoint. Premier Division League Winners the Artichoke Strikers took a 7-1 lead in the main Blackball Cup and it looked as though the Temple Bar had "had it", but no, they fought back to 7-6 down only to see Lee Fuller of the Artichoke finish the match at 8-6. Mark Bolton, also of the Artichoke Strikers pulled out a phenomenal win in the 14/1 potting competition by clearing 105 balls in a row to cream the previous record of 68 set by Lee Smith back in the 90's. In the main 9-Ball K.O. Cup, The Blues took a surprisingly easy 11-4 win against the Pig & Whistle Specimens. Division 1 League Winners, Rileys Dippers won both the Blackball and 9-Ball Cups in their group and are looking forward to joining the Premier Division after the summer season. In the final "old rules" Division 3 season before joining the Blackball divisions, The Jailbirds not only ran away with Division 3 but also the 8 and 9-Ball Cups. An all Blues Singles final saw Andy Pond victorious against his compatriot Ricky Gaul, and the Blues Brothers walked away with yet another 3-man cup. The new Scotch Doubles Cup was won by Dan Bestford and Lee Fuller of the Artichoke.
