In Memoriam: Mark Ashton

August 15, 2016 in Intercounty, Interleague, Mens Interleague, Seniors Intercounty by Alison Parkes

Mark AshtonAs I’m sure you will all know by now Mark Ashton one of our Senior players lost his brave fight against cancer on Friday night.

Mark was a special friend. One of own who played League, Interleague and County and we’d be really surprised if there is anyone here who didn’t know him or hasn’t met him at some time.

Since Mark’s diagnosis with Bowel Cancer, Alison & Ian have been close to his unwelcome journey. It’s been a pretty tough ride, we’ve shed the odd tear along the way when he’s had bad news, but we also had a lot of laughs. Read the rest of this entry →

  • Wigan A
  • Clitheroe A

First round of matches starting at 10:30 are

  • Blackburn Fox Shots -v- Atherton
  • Chorley A -v- Bury
  • Lancaster ‘A’ -v- Preston
  • Real Blackburn -v- Wigan B
  • Wigan A -v- Clitheroe A

If your team is unable to attend the event then captains should inform the Interleague Secretary at the earliest opportunity so that the reserve teams can be substituted in. Reserves would be selected in the order of the performance in the qualifiers, i.e. Chorley B, Kirkham, Clitheroe B, Darwen.

Format of Play

Order of play in the round robin stage with all matches taking place over 2 tables:

  • Team ‘A’ v Team ‘B’ (match one) – starting at 10:30
  • Losing team v Team ‘C’ (match two) – starting at approx 12:00
  • Winner of match 1 v Team ‘C’ (match three) – starting at approx 13:30.

During the round robin stage of play matches one  and two  must complete the full eighteen frames of the match regardless of the score.

Scoring will be two points for each match won, and one point for a drawn match, if the first match in a group is a draw, the teams playing will toss a coin, witnessed by a tournament official, to decide which team plays the third team in the group.

If after the round robin stage two or more teams on the table have the same amount of winning points, then the team with the best legs averages will win. Legs averages will be decided by calculating the number of legs for, minus legs against.

If a team gains a winning margin at any stage during match 3 this margin being such that the
group is won, then play may be curtailed in that particular group. For example:

  • Team ‘A’ beats team ‘B’ 11-7.
  • Team ‘B’ loses to team ‘C’ 10-8
  • Team ‘A’ leads team ‘C’ 9-0
  • Team ‘A’ cannot be beaten: Play can be abandoned in order that progress can be made

At the end of the group stages, Winners and Runners-up will progress to a sudden death knockout match between Winners of 1 group and runners up from another group with the winners qualifying for the National event.
