It was a night to remember for Clandown A when the Radstock and District Billiards and Snooker League held its presentation dinner at the New Inn, Farmborough.

They won both the Snooker League Division One and the Snooker Team Plate. The celebrations were overshadowed, however, with the news that one of its prominent members, Ken Cox, had recently passed away.

Marksbury B were runners-up in the League but triumphed in the Knock-out Cup, beating Timsbury E in the Final. Clapton D were beaten in the Plate Final, while Paulton RBL won Division Two, with Clandown B runners-up.

Timsbury A were Billiard League champions, and Clandown, who had topped the League for three years in a row, had to settle for second place. Paulton RBL won the Billiards Knock-out Cup for the second year in a row, beating Writhlington in the Final.

The outstanding individual performance of the year came from Vice-Chairman, Andy Stock, who achieved the highest break in the League for many years with a superb 121. Division One Player of the Year was James Purchase, with Dave Chivers taking the honour in Division Two.

The presentations were made by long-serving League member, Brian Harris, from Timsbury.
