Sometimes I think this site is underused amd no one reporting or mentioning anything.
A few weeks ago I played John fountain in some league game and he had a lovely 85 break,, unlucky not to get a century.
Not heard a mention of them anywhere or by anyone.
A.few more reports of avahivements is a good thing.

Sunday saw notts B travel to play Leicestershire B at Breakers snooker club. Notts narrowly lost out 33 to 31, needing just 1 frame to nab a draw... Nottinghamshire man of the match was Richard England winning 7 out of 8 and Nottinghamshire highest break went to Ben Monk for a nice 65. Well done to all who played and thank you. Next up Staffordshire!!!

P.s. anyone interested in playing at county level please don't hesitate to message me and we can arrange a trials day.

A very tough match against who I have regarded for a long time as Nottingham’s best player outside the professional ranks.
I managed to take the first, Bash took the second with a 30 odd break.
I made a 42 in the third, Bash needing several snookers at the end of the frame. Much the same in the last frame, I made a 45 and Bash needed four snookers on the green.
It was a gruelling match, I shaded most of the run, and Bash struggled with the pace of the table.
Always a pleasure to see Bash. Not always a pleasure to play him ????

Played at Spot on Sneinton so that poor Dan didn't have to cycle all the way out to Linby :-)
This could easily have been the other way around if Dan had potted some key balls.

Frame 1:
A scrappy affair that Dan is probably having nightmares about. Dan missing several chances to take the
frame when 20+ in front with the colours left on the table. Martin eventually clearing what was needed
to pinch the frame. Dan should have won this one.

Frame 2:
Dan missing a red at the black end, Martin punishing him with a well taken 68 break.

Frame 3:
This time is was Martin making too many errors, Dan going 40+ up very quickly. Depite a few 20 breaks, Dan
took the frame with an excellent long blue.

Frame 4:
Martin managing to keep Dan close and running out a comfortable winner in the end. Still a battle to get past
Dan's excellent safety game.

Dan was a handful tonight, he has improved vastly and his long potting is pretty scary at times. Just the odd mistake
but all round his safety and break building has really improved.

I think that 21 handicap may be coming down soon Mr Norton.

Well played mate, all the best for your other comps.

Dear players,

I have had a few requests for match extensions in the past day.
I understand that the singles leagues have 3 games scheduled for the next few months so there isn't as much time to get everything played along with Mon/Tues team league games.

Bearing this in mind I am extending the season long match deadline from 31st March to 8th April so that the singles league games can catch-up and the season long comps can be completed.

any issues please let me know.

Firstly I know it’s not in the correct place to submit result but only way I could do it and we’ll palyed masters

Secondly next subject which will cause debate tonight James Robinson played off a handicap of 28 whilst on the forum being a 21 handicap. I spoke to James after the match and he said he was unaware of his handicap being changed but at the start of the season we we as told it is the responsibility of the player or the captain to ensure players handicaps are correct. James stated that the league should inform players of changes so which is it???? We didn’t relalise he was on that handicap until late in the second frame.

4 if my players have had there handicaps changed and I or the player was not notified of this but because I am sad I check weekly to ensure my players handicaps are correct making it fair to everyone. James told me to take it up with Wayne but my answer was you run the league so what’s it got to do with Wayne and that was the end of the conversation.

People may say it’s sour grapes but no I don’t mind losing I maybe a little annoyed with myself but if I lose fair and square then that’s my problem.

So I ask what will happen regarding this???

Is it because we are pushing elites a little to closely now welcome have left. It seems a little corrupt if you ask me personally I can now see why welcome left the league it’s a joke. So what is going to be the outcome of this probably nothing but if nothing is done myself and players state that we will not play the last games of the season and will not play in the league again!!!!! If the boot was on the other foot I am sure something would be done regarding it and I would expect it to be done to us. If it means that much that elites win the league you can keep it possibly they would of gone on to win the league regardless but it’s the principle of the matter. I put a request in 4 weeks ago about other player handicaps in the league being changed and heard nothing until to tonight when the submitted sheet was lost???

I don’t want people ringing trying to explain the situation either do it on the forum or come to see us as a TEAM personally!!!

We look forward to your response!!

Forget Judd Trump or Neil Robertson, Ben Monk is probably the best long potter I’ve ever seen, not unlike Steve Judd.
All the games were fairly close, with no breaks over 40 that I can remember.
Several times throughout the match I left the table happy that it was safe, only to see Ben launch another long pot from distance!
The only way to be sure it was safe was to snooker Ben, but to be fair - he potted one from a snooker ????
I took the first, Ben the second, me the third.
In the fourth I needed only one ball from green onwards to secure the win. It eventually went down to the black, and after I had dropped the black on the black cushion - Ben played a safety and managed to fluke the black in the green bag.
The final frame looked to be mine having made a thirty odd to go 33 ahead, only to miss the pink with one red on. I feared the worst as Ben took the last red with the pink - the writing seemed to be on the wall.
Ben launched blue into the bag, blasted pink into the bag and narrowly missed the black. Fortunately for me Ben put the black over the middle for me to pot for game and match.
They say you should play the balls and not the player. That’s difficult when it comes to Ben - he’s such a monster potter that you live in fear of him being able to see a ball, cos if Ben can see it - there’s a good chance Ben’s potting it.
Thanks for the game Ben, good luck in the other comps.
