Mixed Doubles 2009
CompetitionsMixed Doubles 2009

The Crossley Club was the venue for this years Mixed Doubles.

Plenty of banter throughout the evening mostly coming from the new faces and it turned out to be a fun and relaxed night. Unfortunately due to time and a bumper entry this year (well in excess of 16 pairs) the second Semi Final and Final were held over to the following week.

So two new faces on the winners rostrum for this years mixed doubles in the form of 1994 singles champion Trevor Howard (Fox & Flowerpot A) and the 2008 ladies singles Finalist Sarah Colton (Birch & Pines) both pictured below.

They came through a very tough part of the draw. On the way to this years final defeating Martin and Donna then squeezing a result against Surrey Junior star Josh Jones and his partner 2008 ladies singles champion Sarah Leeden before finally overcoming multiple winner and defending champions James and Cath. The Final, the first in 5 years not to feature John and Sandy Muttick who bowed out in round 1, featured two new faces in Kris Harrison and Karolyne Foster who with the aid of a couple of non attendances found themselves in the quarters without striking a ball in anger. This could be detrimental not knowing how the tables were playing and sitting out for quite a while, however this wasn’t the case as they won both matches and sneaking unnoticed into the final with 2-1 results in both games.

However the final proved one step too far for Kris and Karolyne as Trevor and Sarah's experience came to the for in a resounding 3-0 win. Trevor and Sarah both pick up engraved salvers and £70 between them, while Kris and Karolyne dont go home empty handed with salvers and £50 to split at the presentation night on 16th May 2009.

So congratulations to Trevor Howard and Sarah Leeden on becoming the 2009 champions and the 10th winners in all since the inaugural winners Ray Cassanove Penny Leckonby back in 1995. Leading the way are Bob and Anne Taylor with three wins (1997, 99 and 00) from their record five final appearances closely followed by John and Sandy Muttick with two wins (2005, 07) from four consecutive finals. Next is James Gregory also on two wins (2006, 08) the first with Cath Richardson and the second partnered by Cath Akehurst. Finally with one title to their names Ray Cassanove and Penny Leckonby (1995) Richard Lambert and Dawn Codgebrook (now Milton) in 1996, Fred Moeller and Sue O'Donnell (1998) David Penly and Jenny Eyre (2001) and now Trevor Howard and Sarah Colton completing the list in 2009.

ladies singles 2009
CompetitionsThe 2009 West Surrey Ladies Singles took place on the 19th March at Riley's Guildford.

With a starting field of 8 runners this was certainly another step in the right direction for Ladies Pool within West Surrey as across Surrey entries from the fairer sex are all in all low. Organizing the event fell to secretary Edd Marshall as his better half was in the tournament.

We know there are other Ladies out there who may want to get involved and perhaps start an all female team within the League, who knows.

With the absence of a number of high profile ladies last time round, this year included seven of the eight entries from last year.

Once again this was an opportunity for a new face to come to the for and perhaps another new name on the trophy for 2009 and Steph Powell has done just that by defeating the defending champion Sarah Leeden in five frames in this years final.

Since the inaugural competition won by Colette Bromhead in 1995 there have been a total of nine different Champions, Anne Taylor leads the way with five wins from her seven consecutive finals (1995-2001) Amanda McWilliams twice (2005-2006) Vicki Abott (2000) Gemma Adcock (2004) and Sarah Leeden (2008) all winning one of their two final appearances. Colette, Mel Applely, Sarah Parsons and now Steph Powell complete the list of Champions.

Draw and Results

Catherine Akehurst 1 v 2 Steph Powell

Claire Hawkins 0 v 2 Sarah Colton

Karolyne Foster 1 v 2 Sylvia Reynolds

Sarah Leeden 2 v 0 Donna Gregory

Steph eased past Cath Akehurst in a match that could have gone either way. Sarah Colton looked impressive beating Claire Hawkins 2-0 and new girl Sylvia Reynolds upset the form book by taking the deciding frame against Karolyne Foster and finally Sarah Leeden the defending champion cruised past Donna Gregory.

Semi Finals

Sarah Colton 0 v 2 Steph Powell

Sylvia Reynolds 0 v 2 Sarah Leeden

It wasn’t to be a repeat of last year's final as Sarah Colton missed several chances against Steph Powell eventually losing 2-0 in the second Semi Final Sarah Leeden was too strong for Sylvia running out by the same score.

The Final

Steph Powell 3-2 Sarah Leeden

Sarah Leeden got of to the perfect start taking the initial frame with relative ease and looked to be on course to retain her title she won 12 months ago by increasing her lead to 2-0. However from then on it was all about mistakes from Sarah and resolute play from Steph who clawed her way back into the final winning the next two frames to force a decider. The final frame followed the same pattern as the previous 4 frames where Sarah Leeden put herself in a winning position only to falter on the final few balls. This gave a Steph another chance and slowly but surely took control of the frame and eventually the match. Sarah will rue this as a chance missed to secure a second win in the event but for the new ladies champion Steph Powell a fitting end to a great night for her. Steph probably wasn’t the favourite at the start of play but by taking out both of last years finalists and Cath Akehurst in the first round she fully deserved her win in the end.

Thanks to all the players who attended.

Congratulations to Steph Powell on winning the event.

Founders Cup and Salver Semi Finals and Final

The Semi Finals were again both held at the home of the league sponsers Riley's.

Founders Cup Semi Finals

George A 6 -v- 4 Chobham F.C

This always looked to be a close encounter on paper and it turned out to be just that. The George putting on the early pressure and taking a commanding 4-1 and 5-2 advantage before Chobham took the next two frames to close the gap to just one frame, However it was not to be for Chobham as Andy Sutherland cleared the table for theGeorge A to progress 6-4

Crossley A 6 -v- 4 Princess A

On paper this looked a one sided affair with the reigning league champions Croosley A highly tipped to breeze into the final. The Princess held their own early doors and it was frame for frame at 3-3 and looked like it could go either way. The second set however saw the Crossley A (with no doubt a few harsh words from captain Malcolm) ease to the line with Martin Chubb once again being the pick of the bunch.

Founders Salver Semi Finals

Blue Anchor A 6 -v- 5 George B

No fairytale for the George B as the 2008 Salver winners were beaten in a tense final frame decider to send the lads from the Blue Anchor A into this years final.

Princess B 6 -v- 5 Fox & Flowerpot A

Another close encounter that went the distance, it looked as though the Fox had it in the bag at one point but eventually this semi also took a last frame decider to split the teams. Bluey Noel coming out on top against 1994 singles champion Trevor Howard.

Founders Cup Final

George A 6 -v- 1 Crossley A

Playing at one of the league's premier venues (Woking Snooker Club) and thanks to james for organising the night, this looked to be a repeat of the league game played two weeks before. However this time once the George A nicked the first two frames they didnt look back with Mark Laxton defeating Martin Chubb and Anthony Rourke sealing a resounding 6-1 win for the newly crowned League Champions.

Founders Salver Final

Princess B 6 -v- 1 Blue Anchor A

West Byfleet hosted this clash and a big crowd turned up to see if the Blue Anchor could go all the way and win this years Salver against the experienced Princess B. Unfortunately it was not be as the chances the Blue Anchor made were not converted to wins on the score sheet. The final score suggests a thumping in the final but two or three frames could have gone either way.

Well done to all four teams on making the finals and to especially to the winners the George A and Princess B and I look forward to seeing you all at this years presentation.

2008 winter season review
2008 Winter Season Review

Well with another season gone by what has it meant to you?.
Have you done what you set out to do, gone far beyond that or have got nowhere near.


With all the usual suspects making up div1 could anyone keep up with the elite top two, that being the mighty George A and the silky swift Crossley A.
Stoughton Working Mens Club gave it a good crack but just did not have the staminar and ended 20pts behind 1st place taking the third spot. So with the elite 2 left to there own devices who was going to fold first. After the first half of the season the George A were infront by a meesley 1pt so could this be yet another close season right to the end. Well the answer is a big yes and with a slight change in fixtures it left the last game of the season being the biggest (Crossley A Vs George A).
After 13 games the George A had won 12 lost 1 leaving them on 101 pts and the Crossley A with a max 13 wins and no losses leaving them on 100 pts.
This meant that both teams needed 6 pts to take the title.
All was going the way of the george by taking the first 2 frames. After the first 5 it was 3-2 to the george so Crossley were certainly not taking it laieing down. The George then took the next 2 to make it 5-2, they just needed 1 more for the title. Could the Crossley bring it back, well of course they could by taking the next 3 frames on the trot to make it 5-5. So the whole 2008 Winter season championship came down to just 1 frame.
The team captains now had to make a choice of who to put in and well it could only be the 2008 singles champion Andy Sutherland for the George and Runner up Martin Chubb for the Crossley and with Martin to break could he pull it out of the hat and win one remaining frame of the season. He breaks of only to find a bad split and cue ball stuck in the back of the pack. With neither wanting to give anything away both players agreed on a re-rack. Martin breaks for the second time and splits the pack wide open but not a single ball finds a pocket, so Andy comes to the table and in true fashion takes on clear up to give the Mighty George A there 4th championship win out of the last 5 winter seasons.

Martin Chubb helped himself to the best player award with an impressive +20 frames in his pocket.
T. Harding walks away with second place on a +17.

League Newcomers

Hi All,


Some of you may have noticed that a new team has joined the league as part of the current Division 2.

Usually new teams are required to wait until the following season either Summer or Winter to join the league. However firstly due to the decision taken to reduce Winter Divisions to 8 teams to accomodate at the time the 32 paid entries and secondly that unfortunately 2 teams have been removed/folded from this tier of the League the Committee decided to ask the Wellington if they wished to join the league at the half way stage for half price.

1. All teams in Divison 2 were informed
2. It was agreed that they would start 2pts below all other teams and would only play the remaining 6 fixtures.
3. This would alleviate the problem of excessive free weeks and would generate much needed business for the venues involved. Another positive is that players/teams will be playing more pool on a Thursday.
