 Important 13 October 2017 Thank you

Good Morning All,

Due to a change in my work commitments, I shall be stepping down as league secretary and from the committee at the end of November 2017.

The committee has agreed that Zack Harden will become the new league secretary, most of the captains would have noticed Zack's involvement with the league operations has increased significantly over the last 12 months and is the ideal person to take the league forward and develop it further.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has been involved in the league throughout my 15 years on the committee.

I will still play within the league once my work commitments level out a little and look forward to seeing you on the tables.

All the best


 Important 03 September 2017 Recording results ongoing issues

Good morning all,

As some if you are aware, we are repeatively having issues with either not receiving score sheets, or they are not being filled out correctly and incomplete.

The committee give up there own time as a voluntary service, purely for their passion of the game and trying to improve and develop your league for the better.

This issue with sheets has been going on since beginning of last season. We have discussed at AGMs this and penalties to be given. We have been very relaxed on this until now.

This is your final warning. As of the halfway turn point in season coming up in 2 weeks time 28th September, no reminders or exceptions. Please spend a few minutes making sure your sheet is complete prior to sending.

Incorrect sheet, Incomplete sheet, unsigned sheet or late or no sheet will incur 1 point automatic deduction.

This notice will be added also to WhatsApp chat group for captains notice.
I will also put a filled in template onto WhatsApp page.

Many thanks

Zack Harden
APL committee member.

 Important 06 July 2017 YOUR WINTER 2017 SEASON! starts Today!

Firstly, thank you to everyone for coming to presentation, and registration night last Thursday. some very good points were put forward and have been acknowledged. Big thank you for registrations for this coming season, It is very important for us, to feel that everyone is happy with proceedings, As this is YOUR league!

YOUR WINTER 2017 opening fixtures kick off this evening,As this new season commences, the committee are delighted to have Joseph Cronin join the board.

As you will see on the right, due to numbers registered, we have 2 larger divisions, A Prem, and 1st division. all teams have been placed into divisions based on there finishing position last season. We believe this will be greater value to venues as many more fixtures to be held at each venue this coming season.

PREM consists of 10 teams, therefore will be 2 byes per week, The 1st division has 11 teams so only 1 bye. the teams that this effect this week are LOCO A+B, from prem, and Singleton Barn A from division 1, I hope that these nights an be used for practices, or friendly matches.

As you are aware some rules were discussed, below a quick recap, all captains put themselves forward for a whats app, this is now live, and they have been sent details and rules as required.

1) If a team has a NO player, this has to be placed into position 5 in every set, this no player has the same condition as any other, therefore cannot be drawn against the same opponent.
2) LATE player arrivals, example, if a player on game 5, has not arrived by the time of his frame, then the match will move onto next set. the opposite team will claim this frame, the late player can still continue in later sets. ( THIS IS DOWN TO THE CAPTAINS AGREEMENT AT BEGINNING OF MATCH)
3)ALL MATCH RESULTS TO BE FILLED IN COMPLETE AND SIGNED BY BOTH CAPTAINS. this is then to be sent to WHATS APP GROUP, on the night, ( this does not change recording process ont web, which will continue as 8pm deadline on Monday after match.)
4) Referees can be used, if either captains suggest this then it shall be carried out. ( this should be discussed prior to match commencing)
5) rule 3 from above, if a captain is unavailable on the night, committee contact details can be found on section at top of page, please photo and send to a commitee member whom can upload to whats APP page.

A few teams in the prem have changed name or venue see below.

Plough Poke & Hope, this season will play from the Woolpack and be know as Plough Poke & Hope @WP

Albion E have moved to Willesborough Cons Club, will be known as Toomey's Cons

John Wallis Pot luck have moved to Windmill, and will be known as Windmill Pot luck.

if any concerns, complaints or questions relating to the above, please do not hesitate to contact any one of the committee members who will be able to explain more.

 Important 19 June 2017 Team KNOCKOUT finals

Good evening all,
last Thursday we had some very entertaining pool, We would like to congratulate the following teams and also to all the teams taking part on the night,

Ball bashing cons came back from a 2-0 disadvantage against Albion D, played at the Ashford club, Dan Morrison to seal the match winning decisive frame to seal a 8-4 result.

elsewhere, something quite strange for me, not to be playing at all, but to be assisting, refereeing and organizing 3 matches at the Plough which I believe was a thrilling night,
Both semi finals played out at same time, going to frame decider, on table 1, OPOWSB from 2nd division, took prem side Albion E to last frame, Ricky stewart showing great composure to seal decisive last frame, to send Albion into final!
On table 2, favourites Plough inn B, whom had a great 1st season in prem league took on 3rd place in 1st division and just missing promotion by 1 point, John Wallis Potluck, the plough took a 6-4 lead including the 2 given for handicap, but John Wallis came back strong to take final frame and book there spot in final.

Due to time passing, both teams agreed to play final on both tables. John Wallis commenced+2 and The Albion didn't really recover, they nicked a few games and a come back looked on the cards, but John Wallis played exceptional on the night, winning 8-5.

this was a great night, and I thank everyone for taking part and the venues for there support.

well done to all teams!

Kind regards

 Important 30 May 2017 League Summary

Good evening all,

Firstly I'd like to thank-you all for playing your part in a fantastic, exciting and competitive season, with the last league fixtures being held this week! many positions at top and bottom still being contested right up to the wire.

PREM : With the TOP 4 all playing one another, no game will be easy, Ashford club A can win league if they draw, win or match the Plough poke & Hope result. A loss for Poke & Hope would see Ashford club champions regardless of their result. Poke & Hope will be champions only by winning there game, and Ashford club lose.
The foot of the league is very interesting with 2 of any of 3 teams to be relegated, bottom of table Loco A travel to Plough B knowing 3 points will see them survive, The Albion E host The windmill A in what could be a relegation playoff, however a draw enough for windmill, but Albion need win to leap windmill. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE TEAMS!

1ST DIV : The Pheasant A confirmed as division champions with their win last week, return to prem league next season after a few seasons in div 1. well done!
Runners up and also promotion still being contested, with two difficult matches, firstly The plough inn visit the pheasant knowing 3 points will take them up, John Wallis travel to the windmill B, knowing 3 points will leap frog them above the plough if the plough lose. however The windmill need to win to be assured of dodging relegation. The Bonny cravat need to win against relegated OPOW SA or better the windmill result to swap places with windmill. GOOD LUCK TO ALL TEAMS!

2ND DIV : Runaway champions and a return to 1st division at the 1st time of asking for Singleton Barn B, well done! As it stands RUNNERS UP and promotion to 1st Div contested by 3 and extremely close to call, 2nd place kingshead vs barn A knowing 3 points and continuing to better other results or frames won should be enough, 3rd place OPOW SB away to champions, needing to better results of two other games. 4th place woolpack B would climb to 2nd if they win and other two lose. very much to play for and could see a playoff after these matches. Woolpack also have a game in hand being played on 31st, so is in there hands. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

Player of season and dish table also very well contested as always good luck to all fighting for this.

Good luck to all teams still in Team Knockout, and Plate knockout, these fixtures are online and taking place over the next few weeks.

I hope you all have enjoyed this season, If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to improve your league, the committee would be delighted to hear you views. Presentations and Registration details will be announced soon .

Please could all champions from last season kindly return there main trophies to committee members so we can swiftly enter new winners on them ASAP.
