PETER HIRST. 1954-2018

 

Sadly we have to announce the passing of another of our former champions 

Peter Hirst who died recently aged 64 years old.

 

Peter won the Huddersfield Junior Championship in both 1975 and 1977 - remarkably also winning our open snooker championship in 1977-which is a magnificent fete. He also won the Leonard Oldham pairs in 1990 playing with Paul Heywood and then changing codes he won the Billiard handicap in 1978.

 

He played for the Huddersfield Inter District League for many years, being a regular member of the Huddersfield No 1 Snooker Team in the 70’s and 80’s.

 

RIP Peter

Funeral arrangements;-Friday 02nd November 12 noon  2018 at Park Wood Crematorium,Elland

 

 

Competitions 2018/19

 

Please note that all Competition Entries are now open on the Website.

CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES IS WEDNESDAY 31st OCTOBER 2018.

Please make a note of the actual Final Date & Venue. Should you or your team be unable to meet that date then please avoid entering that particular Competition. In the event of any queries then please contact Rod Taylor ( Competition Secretary ).

 

 

4th October 2018


Just a reminder that result cards/sheets are available from the website and should be completed by both captains, granted that you don’t need them in 95% of cases, however, the rules state that breaks need both captains’ signatures to verify that the break was recorded and you need a result card in the event of a disagreement or wrong handicap being recorded/played off.


Shelley S&SC 'B' team has withdrawn from Division 3

Unfortunately the Shelley S&SC B has been withdrawn as its players are no longer available.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


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:
