The association acted on this by writing a letter to Lindley WMC asking for their presence at the meeting to be held on Monday 13th 2017. To answer this accusation. Lindley WMC replied acknowledging receipt of the letter saying they would attend. Unfortunately no one from either of the teams involved attended the meeting. A representative of Lindley WMC, Robert Read, explained that no complaint had been raised at the time of the Game, although in the future, music to the snooker room speakers will be switched off.
