After the withdrawal of Cuesports and the removal of their results left a big gap at the top, both Canton Libs A and Savoy took advantage of a bye week for leaders Taff’s Well B. Canton won 5-0 against their local rivals Canton Libs Z, whilst Savoy overcame South Wales Snooker by 4 frames to 1, the highlight being a 81 break by Mark Bennett. However, the other side in the top four Cuesaders suffered a 3-2 defeat at Rumney British Legion, meaning the Llandaff outfit lose ground on the leaders.
The middle of the table has a congested look, as all four teams played each other this week. Cathays Cons beat Park Cons 3-2, and Senghenydd won against Taff’s Well A by the same scoreline.
The deadline for the next round of competition matches to be played is this Sunday (10th Jan). You can submit your results on the website, the forum, or by texting Huw Carpenter on 07891111608.
There are a number of league and competition fees that have yet to be paid. Please ensure you pay any outstanding monies ASAP.
The CDSA committee would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
The league restarts on Thursday 7th January.
The newcomers to the CDSA Cardiff Cuesports have sadly had to withdraw from the Premier League, after they informed the Committee that they would have difficulty fulfilling their January fixtures because of university commitments, in addition to being unable to guarantee five players for future matches.
Their results will now be void and removed from the league records, and the league table adjusted. The individual rankings will also be altered so that Cuesports matches are removed. The fixtures for the second half of the season will now be redrawn to avoid having two byes each week, and the Handicap Plate’s matches will also be adjusted.
There will be an announcement on the website in the next couple of weeks once the fixtures have been changed.
