NEWPORT POOL LEAGUE GETS UNDERWAY NEXT WEDNESDAY
NEWPORT (Shropshire): The 2013-2014 Newport & District Pool League gets underway next Wednesday night (October 30th) with 18 teams set to do battle over 34 league weeks until the finish of the season in July 2014.
Defending champions, Horns Gnosall A, have disbanded and switched their team to Market Drayton Legion. Mick Manning, George Allen, Colin Pink and Neil Dale will be joined by Market Drayton Open winner and Newport Open finalist Ricky Leese and they remain firm favourites to retain their title.
The Sutherland Arms played many of their later matches at the Honeysuckle last season and they switch to the new table at the Pheasant this season alongside NRBL B, who also switch to the High Street venue.
The Barley Mow have moved to the Royal Navy Club, but the rest of the teams remain unchanged, save for minor line-up movements, ahead of the first week of matches.
Teams may field a minimum of four players and a maximum of eight per match, with games taking place over four singles and two doubles racks. All matches are to start at approximately 20.30hrs and scores sent by 23.15hrs on the evening to championship coordinator Neil Perkins on 07831 123153.
