Congratulations to Cessnock Comets who needed a 4 points from their last match to take out the minor premiership by a point. Cessnock Comets will play Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.1 at Wangi Workers Club on Thursday to see who will progress to Grand Final. In the minor semi Wangi Workers Club No.2 will play Kahibah Sport Panthers at Belmont 16′ Sailing Club. Good luck to all teams competing.
Due to extended delays in receiving results from a few (not many) teams the NDBSA Committee has passed that any team who does not send ‘readable’ results through within 24hrs will receive no points for that match. Over the last few years we have been patiently chasing teams for results but one or two captains are constantly delaying the posting of everyones results to the web. If a captain cannot send results via photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or 0477 829 588 then they are required to phone and verbally give results (0477 829 588). When filling out books please fully complete in legible writing. In the Tony Tamplin and Premier League its preferable that rather than ‘W’ or “L” that the number of frames a player has won is inserted in that column to aid with confirming team points.
Congratulations to John Crossland of Nelson Bay Community Club for taking out the 2018 Newcastle District Handicap Snooker Singles (16+). John defeated Wangi Workers Clubs Brian Sorrenson 2-1 in the final. John Howard, also from Nelson Bay and David Foxley from Kahibah Sports both did well reaching the semis. A big thanks to Chris Mungoven for running the tournament supported by Annette Clifford and Ian Callaghan. Also thanks to Wangi Workers Club for hosting the event.
