Unfortunately the Shelley S&SC B has been withdrawn as its players are no longer available.  The fixtures have been replaced with byes.


Steve Whiteley

It is with sadness that we have to announce the passing of Steven Whiteley. Our thoughts and condolences are with his wife Pat and her family at this difficult time.

Steve was a playing member of our league and he officiated at numerous finals for over fifty years.

Steve has been a top official, not only at local level, but he also refereed professional snooker and billiard matches up and down the country.

Describing Steve as a player, where to begin? To say he was a player who never conceded a frame was an understatement. His determination and enthusiasm were second to none. Even when a game looked impossible to win he would persist in trying to lay on snookers and if questioned about this at the end of the game he would respond with, ‘The games called snooker, that’s what I’m trying to do!!’

Over the years Steve enjoyed success on the table. He won the Leonard Oldham pairs in 1988 playing alongside Gary Thomas, 1987 he won the billiard handicap and in 2012 he made the highest break in the Veterans League.

Steve also had success in the league playing with New Mill teams at snooker and billiards, and more recently with Marsh Liberal Club in the veteran's league.  He also played in several Huddersfield billiard teams that have been winners of the Yorkshire Billiard League over the past 25 years.

Steve's funeral will be held at 3pm on the 19th September at the Grenoside (a village near Penistone) Crematorium, post code: S35 8RZ.

RIP Steve.


SEASON 2018/2019

The entry forms are now closed. The new season is ready and fixture lists available.  Handbooks will soon be available and a notice will be posted when they are.


Vets Age Qualification

All players must be aged 60 or over before they can play. If a player's 60th birthday occurs during the season, he/she cannot play before his/her 60th birthday.


Submitting and changing results

There have been several instances of teams not being able to submit results because the member that enters results is unavailable. THIS CAN BE DONE BY SOMEONE ELSE. Team logins can have several registrations to a team (as opposed to club logins). Provided you have an email address that you can use, go to the team login page and click Register, then follow on screen instructions.

There have also been a few instances where the entered 
result contains a mistake. THIS CAN BE CORRECTED by logging in and going to the result card page in exactly the same way as the result was originally submitted. When the match date is selected you will see the form completed with the information originally entered. Then change and data that is wrong, click 'Check your results' card, then click 'Send the results to HBSA'.


Payments

If you need to pay anything to the HBSA this can be done by internet banking.  To do this, the details you need are as follows:  Sort Code: 20-43-04, Account No: 10523232, Reference: Include your club name in the reference. You can also pay using PayPal by sending money to PayPal account: accounts@huddersfieldsnooker.com

Please inform Dean Poutney (email: r_dean@live.co.uk) and John Wilson (email: johnwilson556@virginmedia.com) when payment has been made for the purpose of keeping their records up to date.)

 


Contacting opponents in competitions

This is easily possible using the web site. Navigate to Competitions >> The Draw, results, dates etc. Then select the competition you want to check. Then locate the opponent you are drawn against: move the mouse pointer to the opponent, or touch the opponent if you are using a touch screen: that will bring up a small box with your opponent's email and/or phone number.


 

Email address changes

If you have changed your email address we can easily change all instances of it on our system. Simply use the Contact Us Page and supply us with the old email address and the new email address and we will change all instances from the old to the new. This includes team and club registrations. 


HELP needed on our website:

We are at risk: should our web site technician become ill or unavailable for any reason our website could stagnate. 

Therefore we are still looking for an additional (voluntary) member to work with our web technician and help with the web site maintenance and development.  The current technician is happy to act as a mentor to gradually hand over the reins.  This is a superb opportunity for someone to develop and extend his or her IT skills.  He or she could learn how to develop windows based computer web applications that use a database. 

If you are interested contact Pete Gilbert (email: 
gilbertp@outlook.com) or phone 07890 032041.
