8 Ball Clearance Competition 2012

8 BALL CLEARANCE COMPETITION

 

This Season sees the introduction of a new Competition to run across each of the three Divisions. Every player knows that the pinnacle of any single frame performance is to break and clear the table without giving your opponent so much as a single shot - a dish, lauded by team mates and opponents alike, and a rarity, even amongst the best players.

 

Well this Season, we've decided to honour this most prestigious of achievements with a Trophy to recognise the BDPL Player who achieves the most break and dishes across the Season. In the event that you manage one, simply mark it on the Scorecard before you send it off to the Fixtures & Results Secretary so that it can be added to the running total below.

BDPL WINTER LEAGUE SEASON WEEKS 5 AND 6 SEE TWO FURTHER PLAYERS REGISTER BREAK AND CLEARANCES

 

The BDPL Winter League 8 Ball Clearance Competition is hotting up nicely with the table expanding to a hugely impressive nine players serving up a total of no less than twelve dishes between them.

 

The Crowthorne Club appear to be hosting a Clearance Competition all of their own as Phil Hyatt became the third Crowthorne Club player to register a break and dish this Season. Phil left his opponent watching on hopefully as he promptly broke and cleared in his Team’s draw at home to the Squirrels.

 

Not wishing to be outdone, the Newtown Pippin B’s Tommy Brookman has got himself in on the action, not letting his opponent anywhere near the table as he broke and dished in the Pippin B’s Week 6 eventual loss against the Prince of Wales.

 

Remember, the player who produces the highest number of dishes (a break and subsequent total clearance) at the end of the Season will be crowned the 8 Ball Clearance Champion and will be the recipient of a nice trophy in recognition of their achievements.  Don't forget to note any dishes on your Scorecards or simply text the name of the player who has completed one to the Fixtures and Results Secretary.  

BDPL WINTER LEAGUE SEASON WEEKS 3 AND 4 SEE TWO FURTHER PLAYERS REGISTER BREAK AND CLEARANCES

 

The BDPL Winter League Season may only be a month old but already we have seen an incredible eight break and total clearances made in what has obviously been a high quality start to the Season.

 

Weeks 2 and 3 have seen no less than four total clearances, two of them in one match and three of them incredibly being made by one player.

 

Take a bow Paul Hawkins of the Bridge House who pulled out a dish in his side's narrow 7-5 victory over the Crowthorne Club last week, narrowly missed out on another in his second frame and then promptly served up two further dishes in the Bridge's epic encounter with the William Twigg in Round 1 of the Keith Strong Memorial Trophy. To pull out one dish during the Season is noteworthy, after all, it's an achievement that will elude the majority of players - but to produce no less than three in the space of two weeks, and two in the same match is quite frankly astonishing.

 

Whilst purring over Paul's recent performances, we shouldn't forget that another name has been added to this elite list of players who've not let their respective opponents muster so much as a shot - that of Stephen Gale of the Crowthorne Club who, no wishing to be out done by Paul Hawkins' efforts, produced a dish of his own in his side's tussle with the Bridge House. Well done Stephen.

BDPL WINTER LEAGUE SEASON WEEKS 2 AND 3 SEE TWO FURTHER TOTAL CLEARANCES

 

Despite the BPDL Winter League Season 2012 being only three weeks old, we've already seen two further dishes racked up.

 

The William Twigg A's Sean Watson is in danger of having the 8 Ball Clearance Title wrapped up by Christmas as he defied huge odds to rack up his second dish in two weeks in the Twigg's draw against the Sandhurst SC.

 

Meanwhile, the Dukes Head's Des Woods has also decided to get in on the action as he broke and promptly cleared the table against the Woodcutters B Captain, Rui Gomes, to help the Dukes Head cruise to a 11-1 thumping.

FIRST WINTER LEAGUE FIXTURES SEE TWO TOTAL CLEARANCES

 

The BDPL Winter League Season may be barely a week old but already we've seen the Total Clearance Competition get off to a flyer with two total clearances being made in the first week of Fixtures.

 

The William Twigg A's Sean Watson and the Sandhurst SC's Richard Malyonproduced a break and clearance apiece in their respective fixtures to leave their opponents without so much as a shot for their troubles.
