Matches commence on 10th October. The secretary Ian Champion and all the other hard working members of the G.B.B.A. have been working on a slightly different format for this coming season, which will prove interesting. I look forward to dusting the old winter league cue off, if I can find it in the shed ! And to helping my old team mates from Layabouts out whenever they need the old man to play.
It was like going back 15 years tonight in the Layabouts team. Lauberge Divette re-visited. With yours truly, Terry Girard, and Phil Keutzer who stepped in to help us out making his first appearance in 5 years. In a re- arranged game from last week, wins for Ben Wilding, Terry Girard and Norman Wilkinson secured a 3-2 win away to the Giants at La Fontaine.
Next up tomorrow night the Baulkliners (Trev & Co.) with the breaks against us at Ex Service Club. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.....
Stunning victory for the Breakaways in the semi final of the cup last nigh with, 2 brand new players playing against each other in the final game to decide the match.
With the Breakaways 3-2 down but with just over 3k advantage it was a winner takes all.
Results * + the break
Paul Le Gallez 2630 Steve Carre* 390 Bob Chapple* 3650 Matt Wilcox 3550 Gary Naftel 5290 Leon Ogier* 1160 Ian Champion* 830 Darren Ogier 8360 Shaun Broughton 860 Roy Le Page* 3540 Jamie Pike* 0 Mick Gontier 600
Nothing wrong with the RAF Club table as Mat Ogier Ogier plays it out (score to folow) as Layabouts beat Giants 5-1 in the six-a-side knockout. Wins also for Paul Dyer, Ben Wilding, Norman Wilkinson and supersub Phil Keutzer 5K+ helped the result. Terry Girard unlucky to lose against Luke Oliver by only 200 points.
As we head into the final month of the 2017/18 season, the league title has been decided with Trevor Gallienne team the Baulkliners claimed another title.
With only one league week to come, Trevor Gallienne has also tied up the player of the year award, by topping the player stats for the year.
Trevor, also currently has the highest score of the season with 16,650, which he scored against the break, it was even more impressive with the fact that his opponent Terry Kenny had already scored 2350.
With the Island team selected on players stats for the first time this year,
Trevor Gallienne, Ian Champion, Matt Ogier, Andrew Rundle and Gary Naftel places secured.With the final place to be decided between Ben Wilding, Bob Chapple and Roy Le Page
In the Team knockout, bottom placed team Breakaways have secure a shock victory against the RAF club 3-3 and win on aggregate.
Darren Ogier set the team up with a shock win against the break versus Ian Champion, with an over 8000 advantage. Gary Naftel and Paul Le Gallez pulled the RAF club into a 2-1 lead by were still trailing on agrregate. Roy le Page then pulled the game back to 2-2. Bob Chapple was then under pressure to win and score big to take advantage of the aggregate and team score, he only managed to win by 100 points meaning the final game was a winner takes all.
Mick Gontier a new recruit for the breakaways played a tense and exciting game to take the victory and put the Breakaways into the final on the 10th April. Their opponents are still to be decided with Baulkliners and Layabouts still to play.

Good update Darren. Layabouts play champions Baulkliners in the six a side knockout semi-final on Monday evening at RAF Club. Our regular team member Davey Richardson sadly passed away this year. And with Ashley Harrison working overseas (well, Herm actually) myself and Terry Girard have come back into the fold to help the team out and another old Lauberge Divette stalwart Phil Keutzer has joined to make up the six. Tuesday evening sees our final league match at Ex Service Club against RAF Club, who have the opening breaks. As well as some players playing for their Island team places, the winners will secure second place in the league, as both teams currently have 40 points. No pressure then.............
