LAST SEASONS TROPHIES

Due to the start of the COVID outbreak, we were unable to fully complete last season with the presentation night outstanding.

Since we restarted, we kept our focus on getting the league back up and running with an eye on any possible impact from future changes, new COVID rules, etc.

Due to the start of the COVID outbreak, we were unable to fully complete last season with the presentation night outstanding. Since we restarted, we kept our focus on getting the league back up and running with an eye on any possible impact from future changes, new COVID rules, etc.

As such, we felt it was not appropriate to hold the last presentation night and agreed to move on with the current season and hopefully get back to some level of normality.

We have also been working with our trophy supplier as a previous order had been made which could not be fully completed. Clearly it is important that we do the right thing with regards the last season but also reflect the feedback we have already received from league members, many not wanted their trophies and wanting to keep the funds in the league to protect us going forward from further impacts.

As such, we have agreed that the trophies (along with any applicable cash prizes) for LAST Season will be given out for the following competitions.

  • Main & Plate Individuals
  • Scotch Pairs
  • League Merits
  • League Most Improved Players
  • 8 Ball Award

All other trophies will not be given out unless we receive a specific request from the team captain. We want to do our very best to avoid giving out unwanted trophies, to support the league financially but also ensure that we also do give out those trophies that are wanted.

Any team winning a League Division, League Cup or League Shield competition that wishes to receive their trophy should contact the League Secretary before JANUARY 1st 2022.

We will then collate an order to get these trophies along with the above listed and will make available for collection at the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 9th Feb (Venue TBC).

League Background

Preston and District Pool League

The league has been running non-stop since somewhere around 1971, although records are sketchy on the exact start date!

Once one of the biggest leagues in the whole of Europe, Monday night was pool night and combined with the number of public houses in Preston, this meant if you were out on a Monday night, you almost certainly had a pool cue in one hand (and a beer in the other!)

We play league matches on a Monday night with Thursday’s being competition night and we run Individuals (Main and Plate), Scotch Pairs (alternate shots), League Cup and League Shield.
