 Important 27 March 2015 Presentation Night update

Presentation Night for Winter 2014
We have been approached by a number of teams in regards to the presentation evening for the last completed season (Winter 2014).

Firstly, our apologies for lack of information about this and again our apologies for not holding the event as scheduled in January.

We had approached our usual trophy provider (in good time) and received a quote a lot higher than the previous season, and a lot less in content of the trophies.
Naturally we want the best product for the league at
the best prices. We stalled on the order and contemplating looking elsewhere. In the meantime (several weeks later and very close to Christmas)
the trophy company came back to us with a much more realistic price, for which we agreed.
The trouble being they could not provide the trophies for the scheduled presentation evening in early January. Owing to the amount of weeks available
within the calendar we had to go ahead with registration on the given night and start the league the following week. Since then, and going forward to the
end of the season there are currently no 'free' Thursdays on which to hold the presentation evening.

Currently we have the trophies ordered and are working on when to hold the presentation evening.
Any date that is decided will be announced on the website.

Thanks for your understanding.

 Important 26 January 2015 Kent Inter-League KO Cup 2015

Sunday 25th January saw the 2015 Kent Interleague Season kick off
with the team Knockout held at Chatham Pool & Snooker Club.
This event widely deemed as the best route of qualification for the
nationals at Yarmouth for the lower division teams.

Below are the results for all three Ashford Mavericks teams.

Ashford Mavericks A
Prelimary Round Maidstone C WON 10-6
Ashford A in control the entire match with dishes from Dan Nisbet, Joe Cronin & Malcolm Johnston

First Round Sittingbourne WON 10-8
Massive effort from all of the team to come back from 7-4 down to lead 8-7.
Great break and dish from Lorraine Fivey in the fightback, also a very worthy mention
of Jamie Yerrall's ground out frame to get 7-4 to 7-5.
Malcolm Johnstone won the final frame with an awesone top cushion to middle pocket double with
the ever vocal Sittingbourne team adding to the pressure.

Quarter Final Maidstone A WON 10-3
A massive push saw Ashford A comfortably beat top division Maidstone A with an excellent dish from
Joe Cronin

Semi Final Rocheser (Reigning National Champions) lost 10-4
A step too far for Ashford A, after missing a few early chances Rochester showed why they are
National Champions and punished the mistakes.

Lorraine Fivey went unbeaten all day, but the team played well as a team and supported each other throughout.

Ashford Mavericks B
Prelimary Round BYE

First Round Folkestone B WON 10-8
Probably Ashford B's nemesis over the last few seasons on the InterLeague circuit.
Ashford B included 4 fresh faces into the team and quickly established a commanding 7-3 lead, Folkestone B
wouldn't lay down and clawed it back to a nail-bitting 7-7. An excellent 2 frames saw Alec Blythe and new signing
Adam Twycross put the B's back in front 9-7, Folkestone claimed the 17th frame after a long safety battle.
Final frame and it must be said that B team have struggled in recent years when the pressure was on but the tide
turned, the ever reliable and steady Mick Bell-Hughes took advantage of 2 visits to seal the match for Ashford.

Quarter Final Medway Y WON 10-8
A very close game that saw the advantage swing from one team to another. The match being played on two tables allowed
the advantage to change quicker than a Mick Bell-Hughes shot...
Once again the back order of Ashford B shone through and sent the match to a final frame. Again the B's led 9-8 going
into thr crunch frame. Both players probably had chances to clinch the frame but the frame was won when Adam Twycross
cleared his last 2 yellows and left with an awkward black to cut into the middle, awkward at the best of time but
with both Medway Y and most of the Rochester team hoping for the Medway player to have another bite at the cherry...
Adam calmly (on the outside) stepped up and potted the black cleanly into the middle of the pocket.
Que the celebrations of the Ashford boys!!

Semi Final Folkestone A lost 10-6
Folkestone A, playing this season in division 4 after reforming... Division 4 not being a true reflection of the ability
within this team, they had just knocked out Romney A (holders of the KO cup) in the Quarter Finals. The team also boated
several very experienced top players.
Ashford B went 3-1 behind after Folkestone had dished 2 out of the first 4. The B's managed to sneak the odd frame and
found themselves at 4-4 going into the final frame of the first half. A lapse of concentration led the Folkestone
player to pot the black prematurely after a heavy safety shot. I assume the wall was not damaged and his hand is not broken??
Folkestone's opening 4 soon took control of the match and took an 8-5 lead, a lead which proved to be a too bigger gap for
the B team to overcome. The following 3 frames were close but Folkestone took the chances in 2 of them giving them a 10-6
victory and progression into the final to face the might of Rochester.

An excellent team spirit throughout that saw the new faces fit in very well.
Mick Bell-Hughes undefeated throughout the day, Matt Clifford with some clinical clearances and some huge frames
from Adam Twycross under pressure were a few of the highlights from a very good day.

Ashford Mavericks C
Prelimary Round Medway D WON 10-8
After a shakey start Ashford found themselves 4-0 behind, Larry Law taking a fine clearance to get the first frame on the
board, The C's clawed frames back and were only 5-4 down at the halfway point. The second half started in a similar vein
to the first wit the Medway team dominating the early frames, taking 3 of the first 4 frames, the exception being an excellent
finish from Andrew Thomas. Still they trailed 8-5, when another excellent finish from Larry Law ensured Ashford remained in touch.
Dave Chilvers produced a worthy clearance to get back to just one behind - leaving Medway nervy.
Dan Gibbs and Dan Long used their Inter-league experience to win the next 2 frames, putting Ashford in the lead for the
first time. Captain Darren Madden took the responsibilty in the last frame and didn't disappoint winning the frame and
indeed the match for his team.

First Round Rocheser (Reigning National Champions) lost 10-1
Not much can be said about the second match, losing to the eventual winners 10-1. Andrew Thomas winning the C's only frame.

The C team showed great spirit and enjoyed good banter throughout the day and are thoroughly looking forward to the coming season.

With reaching the Semi-Finals it is likely that both Ashford Mavericks A and Ashford Mavericks B will be
representing Kent at the National Knock-Out in October - fantastic achievement from all involved.
