We welcome back Trecenydd Snooker who have rejoined with a new side meaning there will be 14 teams competing this year.

The league will continue to be split into two divisions after the success of last season, and there will be a new format for the Malcolm Keenor Trophy and Plate.

Savoy will be looking to defend the Premier League, whilst Canton Libs A will be hoping a new venue at Fairwater will improve their fortunes this season, albeit without star player Kishan Hirani.

Taff’s Well B will be trying to regain the title after last year’s runners-up place, with Senghenydd and Cuesaders looking to build on their excellent campaigns last year.

Cathays Cons move up to the Premier League after winning Division One, whilst Taff’s Well A will be competing for the title after being relegated last year.

Good luck to all sides, and here’s hoping for another successful season played in the right spirit.

A full fixture list will be published shortly, with the draw for the Malcolm Keenor Trophy taking place at the Park Club v Taff’s Well B match.
