Preston and District Pool League is deeply saddened to announce that Ricky Collier, who has played for a number of teams in this league, most recently Bamber Bridge FC, sadly passed away this week.
Details of funeral arrangements will be released when they are available. Our thoughts and sympathies go to the family at this deeply distressing time.
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.
League Chairman / Secretary – Simon Wilcock
League Treasurer – Mark Holderness
Competition Secretaries – Paul Foley and Dean Donohue
Sponsorship Secretary – Caroline Hastie
Trophy Secretary – Mick Singh
