GBSA Team Snooker League – 2006 / 2007
After the traditional Christmas and New Year break all is set for the rest of the season.
As the table shows Manchester United are not the only team with a large advantage in their league!
Barentertainment.net look almost uncatchable, but there are still 13 games to go!
The Cue Ball, with their game in hand, look the best bet; however St Bernard’s Heineken are always a force to be reckoned with.
The Mediterranean Rowing Club lead the chasing pack with Team Queensway just behind.
Fraternal rivalry at the top of town is fuelled by the ‘A’ team’s 4 points last round. The next game between these two (24th January) should be a battle worth the watching.
The Services Police will do better with all of their players turning out for them, so all in all it promises to be an even better second ‘two-thirds’ of the season.
The committee wishes all the teams and each and every player the very best for the new year and plenty of fun snooker.
