After a short Christmas break its back to the pool, where the knockout semi-finalists have now been decided. Leadgate Club, will take on the Phoenix, and last seasons winners, will take on Finnians B who were runners up in 2019. Both games will be played at the Demi on Wednesday 29th January starting at 8pm.
Onto the league, and the Duke seem to be taking command of Division 3, with 97 points, 3 points off the leaders Demi A, but with a game in hand. Malcolm Conaway is now top of the individual rankings winning 73.81% of his games head of Stuart Grix with 72% – Division 2 sees the Station Club firmly at the top of the table 15 points ahead of their nearest rivals the Kings Head in 2nd place. As for individual rankings, Ron Moran sits firmly ahead of everyone with a staggering 82.14% of games won, with his nearest competitor only on 73.98%. Lets hope Ron can keep this up, as it would be thoroughly deserved, for the young 73 year old.
Over to division 1, and this could be the closest its been for years with 4 teams vying for the title. Blackhill Club sit at the top of the table, 8 points ahead of their nearest rivals Finnians B. But with results such as Finnians A beating Finnians B 10-3, recently, it may come down to the results between the teams with 20 points separating Blackhill Club and the Finnians A who have a game in hand. A surprising leader of the individual rankings, with David Wilkinson top of the table on 81.82%, with Seamus Nolan in 2nd on 79.17%. Last years winner Kevin Rainbow only in 3rd on 75%. – Thanks to all who came to our knockout on the 22nd December. It was a great success with fun had by all.
