Cuesaders 1 v 4 Cathays Cons

Mackintosh 3 v 2 Trecenydd Snooker

Rumney British Legion 1 v 4 Llandaff Warriors

Canton Libs Z w/o v Senghenydd*

Savoy 1 v 4 Taff’s Well

*Senghenydd deducted 6 points

Fairwater increased their lead at the top of the Premier League this week with a decisive 5-0 victory over relegation-threatened Canton Libs B to move four points clear with only two games remaining. Wins for Twm Jones, Ben Griffiths, Steffan Davies, Steve Flanagan and Terry Garland leave them knowing that a 3-2 win in both of their remaining matches will be enough to secure the title.

Mackintosh are their only realistic challengers for the title after they defeated an under-strength Trecenydd side 3-2 to remain in the hunt and with a 5-0 walkover in the final game of the season against Senghenydd already decided they know that a big win next week will give them a chance to pip Fairwater to the trophy. The Caerphilly side have had to forfeit their last four matches meaning Canton Libs Z had a 5-0 walkover with a 6-point deduction for Senghenydd.

Savoy’s reign as champions looks over after they lost 4-1 at home to Taff’s Well leaving them six points behind the leaders, whilst back-to-back wins has taken Taff’s Well clear of last place in the Premier League.

Cathays Cons won 4-1 at Cuesaders to make themselves favourites to stay up ahead of a potentially crucial home match against Taff’s Well next week, whilst Llandaff Warriors defeated Rumney British Legion by the same scoreline.

Fairwater Cons remain top of the Premier League after a 4-1 win at Cathays Cons as the Cardiff & District Snooker League restarted after an 18-month hiatus due to the Covid virus.

Wins for captain Steve Flanagan, Ben Griffiths, Steffan Davies and Terry Garland ensured a solid night’s work for the league leaders, but the highlight of the match was a 50 break by Martyn Evans to win a consolation frame for Cathays.

Fairwater’s closest challengers are Savoy who had a 5-0 walkover away to Senghenydd, who are deducted 6 points for not fulfilling the fixture to ensure the Barry side stay in contention. Mackintosh matched Fairwater’s result by overcoming Canton Libs B 4-1 with Alan Hurley registering a 47 break and Jason Hewitt registering his 17th win of the season.

Taff’s Well moved off the bottom of the Premier League with a 4-1 win at home to Cuesaders, with Canton Libs B now occupying the relegation spot following their defeat to Mackintosh. Canton Libs Z look favourites to replace them as they won 4-1 away to Llandaff despite only have four players, although their lead at the top was cut to three points after Trecenydd beat Rumney British Legion 5-0 to move into second place in Division One.

The final of the Malcolm Keenor Trophy will be between Trecenydd Snooker and Savoy after a night of drama in both competitions.

Trecenydd travelled to Mackintosh (minus their star player Dylan Emery) with a slender 3-2 lead but they quickly wrapped up the tie after Andrew West’s win over Jason Hewitt was followed up by wins for Chris Garwood and Jamie Foster against Ronnie Allen and Clive Marsh respectively.

Their opponents in the final will be Savoy after a repeat of last year’s final against Taff’s Well went to a playoff frame, although Tom Cross’s side looked favourites for the tie after Nick Jones inflicted a rare defeat on Sam Thomas, which included a well-crafted 52 break. Savoy hit back though through captain Colin Lane who beat Kevin Brown, but the advantage was restored when Brian Rees defeated Kyle Patterson. That meant Taff’s Well were 5-3 ahead, but Mark Bennett kept Savoy in the match albeit thanks to a fluke on the blue against Rob Hayes. The next was a close affair as Ryan Rowlands won a tense, black-ball frame to overcome James Llewellyn and take the match to a playoff. Both captains made their pick and a repeat of the opening frame pitted Nick Jones against Sam Thomas. Jones started strongly, but Thomas hit back to take the frame to the colours and eventually sealed the win
