New Season Fixtures

The 2018-19 season kicks off on Thursday 13th September with the following matches –

Trecenydd Snooker v Senghenydd
Canton Libs B v Mackintosh
Park Club v Taff’s Well B
Cuesaders v Savoy
Taff’s Well A v Fairwater Cons
Mackies Lost Boys v Canton Libs Z
Rumney British Legion v Cathays Cons

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.

End of an era – CDSL forum closed for business

After way over a decade of banter, insults, arguments, match reports, virtual bookmakers and annual miss rule discussions we have decided to close the CDSL discussion forum Snooker Talk. It was no longer being used frequently, the software version was outdated, and we now have other channels for sharing information and exchanging views.

Thanks to everyone who contributed over the years and giving many of us many laughs (and myself as webmaster many hours of moderating), and to Jeff for setting it up and hosting it free of charge.

Join the CDSL discussion on Twitter, Facebook or the new WhatsApp group. Also feel free to use the comment function on this website to share reports or information.

Whats App

The league has created a Whats App group to allow messages to be shared, and for people to post results.
