It is with great sadness that I find my self writing this.

 I found out today that Alan unfortunately passed away a few weeks back.

Alan has been apart of nottingham snooker for many years in a playing role where he was member of Arnold Civil, Alan was on the committee for nottingham snooker and certainly in some way helped grow nottingham snooker a whole.

I always found Alan to be a true gent on and off the table.

RIP Alan you will be missed by all of nottingham snooker.

Bash Masqood 0-2 Matt Coates
Nick Bentley 0-2 Chris Needham
Cary Davies 1-1 Mick Garratt
Paul Bell 1-1 Rob Garratt


I haven’t got the sheet for the scores of the frames but a quick report
Bash having to give 35 start to matt just never really got going and matt did enough in both frames
To win comfortably 2-0

Chris and Nicks first frame Chris was behind most of the frame with Nick comfortable
But Chris managed to nick this one and in the second frame won pretty easy

Cary and Micks game just proved the handicaps are right as first frame my dad won by about 60 points
And in the second frame Cary who had to give 28 start won it really easy

Mine and Paul’s frames I just want to forget as quickly as possible I was really lucky to win the first with Paul
Missing an easy brown to leave all the remaining colours over the pockets and in the second frame Paul won this
Really easy with me not being able to get into this one

Being 6-0 up really disappointed to not win 8-0 in the end but Paul and Cary played well to win masters two vital points

Unlucky masters and thanks for Bash and Chris for helping both teams out

Andy Teale beat Jason Smith in a closely fought final of this years Phyllis Bell Trophy.  Andy won the match on a deciding black ball - potting the black on the 29th attempt to take the match 3-2.  No exaggeration, honestly. :)

Andy has now qualified for the final place in this years Champion of Champions Trophy.

Congratulations Andy

Full report to follow.

Looking at the scores, Selina nicked the win for her team by winning her black ball frame against me.  Good to meet you properly mate.

Played in the right spirit.  Well played both teams.  See you on Tuesday for a rematch. :)

ETA: Sorry for submitting the result late but I wanted the important posts to stay at the top of the page for a while.
