A reminder to ALL captains about fixtures being postponed

A message to all captains

Per discussion at the 2022 AGM we are going to try to be more pro-active when it comes to postponed games being rearranged. DBSL have created a Fixture Postponed Form where captains can enter their details and advise the committee on games that were postponed, reasons why and possible date re-arrangements. We will work closely with the captains to get the matches completed in a timely manner and not have fixtures unnecessarily dragging on.

The form is located in the website menu or just underneath the league table on the home page. Please fill out the form and submit once a postponed fixture has arisen.

Regards

Kevin

Andrew Doherty is the 2022 National Intermediate Champion

DBSL would like to congratulate Andrew Doherty, of the Willows A snooker team, who won the 2022 National Intermediate Championship in the SBI Sports HQ venue, Carlow.
Andrew started off his tournament with a tense “Day of Deciders”, taking an opening first round 3-2 win over Kevin Mc Conville, and a second round 3-2 win over Mark Gleeson.
A tight Quarter final resulted in yet another decider with Andrew prevailing with a 3-2 victory over John O’Sullivan, securing him a place in the semi final on finals weekend.
Fast forward to finals weekend and the Semi Finals line up got underway with Andrew Doherty taking on Donal Foran and Colvin O’Brien taking on Dylan Rees.
Colvin came through his Semi Final match with a convincing 3-0 win over Dylan, while on the other side of the draw Andrew faced yet another deciding frame against Donal, but once again prevailed 3-2.
The Final was decided over a best of 7, refereed by John Tobin, where Doherty came out victorious, beating Colvin 4-1 and claiming the 2022 National Intermediate Championship Title.
