A bad night for the home team who all seemed to struggle with the new cloth. Only one score over 5K by Gary Naftel who did not seem phased by it. Same for both teams so no excuses. We just have to get used to it.
Ash Harrison 1160 Darren Pipet 1710 Debut win for a new player to the game. Good to see a team bringing in new faces. Pip kept his cool and deserved the point. Mat. Ogier 610 Ian Champion 3380 - Champ lost his opening break and Oggy had a chance to take control. But did not go well. Scrappy game. Champ grateful. Norman Wilkinson 0 Gary Naftel 7300 - I never got the break back and black pegged my total score when the game was already lost. Deserved win for Gary. Paul Dyer 700 Paul Le Gallez 1950 - Diddi lost his unbeaten record also tonight and struggled to put together and keep some decent breaks like the rest of us. Ben Wilding 2810 Shaun Broughton 760. Ben saved the whitewash. Shaun arriving late due to working late decorating the streets of St Peter Port. (Xmas lights)
Giants 3 Layabouts 2 - Re-arranged match played on 4th November. Giants continued their winning form, although not by 5-0 as on the three previous occasions. Giants top of the league. Mat Ogier still top ranked on individual wins and score bonus this season.
Tom Oliver 1690 Norman Wilkinson 1370 - A scrappy game neither of us were proud of. Tom avenged my defeat of him same time last season on this table.
Roy Le Page 980 Mat Ogier 1510 Roy saving himself for Jersey obviously. Mat struggled with break as all the away team seemed to do, but did enough to secure the win.
Luke Oliver 8750 Bob Chapple 1830. Confident performance & win by Luke. Bob drafted in as last minute reserve dusted off his cue not used since Sussex Open.
Terry Kenny 6550 Ben Wilding 390 - Kane showing heis on form and raring to go in Jerseyland. Ben having no luck and a black peg mid. game gave him little time to recover.
Bob Le Moignan 1370 Ash Harrison 2290. Bob went into the game with 3 wins out of 3 and the game was a little closer than the score suggests. Ash needing a win after a few close defeats recently.

Layabouts 1 Giants 4 - Played 12/11/19 at Ex Service Club. 9 out of the 10 players present were suffering from a heavy weekend at The Merton in Jersey (allegedly), and some also affected by jet lag or not got over the rough boat journey back. Either that or blaming the slow low-scoring table, no one manged to score over 5000 points. Giants made the most of what they could on the night securing a useful 4 points.
Ash Harrison 1950 Terry Kenny 2460 - New cue in hand instead of the microphone Ash led for a considerable while until Kane got the break back and put in a decisive score. Norman Wilkinson 0 Roy Le Page 4710 - Roy putting in the best score of the night, lots of pegs and no ideas from his opponent. Ben Wilding 590 Luke Oliver 1820 - Luke's winning form continued despite the low total score, a win is still a win. Paul Dyer 2030 Tom Oliver 2460 - Didi could not blame the weekend in Jersey and nearly caught Tom's efforts when he eventually had his chances. Mat Ogier 2250 Bob Le Moignan 650. Oggy, our best player this season by far also struggled at times with the table's slow pace, but still tops the individual stats in the league.
Match played with heaps of banter and barracking by the usual suspects from the home team.... Result went to the final game when our in form 'Oggy' put in an impressive break which eclipsed most final combined scores of other matches on the night.
Champ 2710 Ash 2080 - An upset looked on the cards at the half way point until Ash pegged a break and let Champ back in to regain the break. Paul Le G 1780 Stormin 2340 - A much needed win by me and was pleased to bring the match back level 1-1 on the night. Darren (Pip) Pipet 1630 Ben (Bin Laden) Wilding 720 - An ever improving first season playing by Pip showing he is no easy pushover, however to be fair, Ben lost a couple of match winning breaks. John Sexton 900 Diddi Dyer 4960 - Another blast from the past drafted in as last minute reserve as he was playing skittles in the pub. John previously played at the one time Bastion of Guernsey Bar Billiards - L'uberge Divette, which once boasted four teams in two divisions. John was not phased and remembered how to hold the cue, although there was only ever going to be one winner. Now on to the decider at 2-2. Gary Naftel 350 Mat (Oggy) Ogier 7710 - Oggy was determined to keep top of the individual stats and passed the test with flying colours, balls dropping with ease and the thousands accumulating quickly. Even talk of Jose M possibly being appointed new Spurs manager did not put him off.
1976 Bar Billiards junior house champion. Les Hubits Tavern.

10th December 2019 Rangers 2 - Layabouts 3. Played on a neutral table (West Legion) Some stunning results on this table as usual with four players recording their highest scores of the season, one being Ash Harrison with a PB of 7400. Layabouts won the choice of breaks * and chose one, three and five.
Darren Ogier 0 (BP) Paul Dyer* 12,310. Not used to playing first, Didi settled down early giving Darren no chance to catch up. Didi's highest score of the season to date. Matt Wilcox* 5800 Ben Wilding 830. Without a win this season, Matt's confidence eventually returned and several breaks contributed to a decent total score. Geoff Ogier 370 Ashley Harrison* 7400. Ash has been noticely improving his performance all season and tonight produced a cool and confident frame, keeping his opening break and going on to record an impressive personal best total score of 7400 against the former Island champion. Leon Ogier* 480 Mat Ogier 9050. Leon was up against the top ranked player in the league to date. Oggy made no mistakes, coolly recording his 9th singles win in 10. Steve Carre 4000 Norman Wilkinson* 880. A clipped white peg during my opening break gave Steve the advantage and time enough which he took willingly and confidently to record his highest score of the season, 4000.
