Izzy lost to Mick (two handy breaks from Izzy got her up to nearly a thousand, but not much added after that. We recommended she gets her own cue: the tip on the cue she used off the table was hard as a bullock's horn.)
Dom lost to Clive (Dom had the beating of me but lost a 700 break at a critical time)
Baz lost to Graham (best game of the night: Graham off with 3k, and Baz pulled up just short of overtaking him. A relieved Graham then added another 4k.)
Tom lost to Johnny (Tom with the break started well enough with a thousand, Johnny overhauled him in stages.)
Chris lost to Barry (Barry slow and determined and allowed Chris very little table time, would have scored 7k had he not lost a break of 3k)
Hassocks B showed flashes of what they might be capable of and we wouldn't have had cause for complaint had it been 3-2. Superchef Dom made life difficult for himself by not getting the break consistently, but was good at keeping going after that. We hope they stay with it.

As usual a good night with the Cocky ones, they took control and won the match with the first 3 legs. Fred son of David played well for someone who only plays occasionally was playing the right shots along with a splash of luck. We took the final 2 legs which puts us 10.5 points clear with one match to go Thanks to the Cock for the usual tasty feast.
Congratulations to my Team HHUSC B on winning Div 1. The Cock Team are clear Runners up and also have had a good season.
Congratulations go Hassocks A on winning the Premier and doing it in style going undefeated all the way and sit by and watch as 4 teams fight over the Runner's up place. Windmill Z, HHUSC B, Plough & BHCC are all in with a chance, this will be played out on what is the spare week 24/9/19 as I have had prior notice of a postponement of next week's match between Windmill Z & HHUSC A.
Website updated, and it seems that congratulations are in order for Derek Taylor -whose 17th win of the season secures him the League’s Best Performance Award.
Lorraine ran him close, well done to her. And with Richard Wooton coming up on the stand rails Derek could not afford to slip up at the Plough. According to Derek his only reversal was against Trevor Appleby at the BHCC.
