 Important 28 October 2019 Romney Invicta - KENT CHAMPIONS 2019


What can I say. What a season for this new look Romney side.
It all started with a nervy first match in March against Gravesham A. After scraping a 5-4 at the break we thought we had an okay start to the season. It got worse though. We lost 4 of the next 5 leaving us staring at defeat, in our very first match. The pool gods then changed their minds and we reeled off the last 4 frames to win a monumental game 10-8.

Next match was the biggest test. Rochester, who have won 8 Kent titles in a row. Again we took a 5-4 lead at the break, but it really should have been more. The pressure showed. We made lots of noise, but a lucky shot in the last cost us and we lost 10-8. On reflection we decided we were too loud when people were playing. Too disrespectful and unfortunately one of our players decided to call it a day. We then brought in the rule ‘Julians Law’. I mention this as i believe it was a pivotal moment of the season. ‘Julians law‘ meant we weren’t allowed to talk to or barrack our own players when playing their frame. A few slip ups and yellow cards issued, but it really has worked. We went on undefeated for the last 6 matches including a 13-5 demolition against Rochester in the return fixture. I’m extremely proud of the boys for winning this and stopping the Rochester winning streak. Thanks to the Levin club and Danny and Karen who have supported us all the way.

A huge well done to the team
Kevin Miles (c), Jamie Yerrall, Dan Nisbet, Paul Vant, Barrie Hughes, Steve Souter, Joe Cronin, Darrell Beaumont, Rich Tulloch , James Challis.

 Important 11 June 2019 New Season

Hi All,

Thank you to everyone who attended Registration and Presentation.

All teams received the packs of result sheets last night. If you require a copy of the fixture list, it will be available to download and print, once the new season is live.

We have decided to go with 2 divisions for the upcoming season. The Premier will have 12 teams, with 13 in Division 1.

In the Premier Division, teams finishing 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th will qualify for the play offs.
3rd will play 6th and 4th will play 5th.
The 2 winners will then compete for a Trophy.
The 3 bottom teams in the League will be relegated.

In Division 1, the top 2 teams will be promoted. Then, teams finishing 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th will qualify for the play offs.
3rd will play 6th and 4th will play 5th.
The 2 winners will then compete for Promotion and a Trophy.
ALL Play off matches will be played at Neutral Venues.

With the addition of play offs in each Division, there will be lots to play for, and hopefully make each division very competitive.

We have gone with this option, as there were lots of byes last season, and with this new format, each venue will get plenty of pool.

We also have the Team KO this season, which will be drawn by Committee Members in the coming weeks. All games will be played at Neutral Venues. The First team drawn out will be the Home Team, so will write names on the sheet first.

Good Luck to all for the New Season.

 Important 13 October 2017 InterLeague

Captains Report Romney B

Yarmouth Knockout Weekend 6th October 2017

We took a squad of 10 to Great Yarmouth Interleague Knockouts. We drew Colchester in the first round. They edged us 10 -6 but it was not a walkover for them, bearing in mind they had 3 England International players. That put us on the backfoot.

Our next draw was against St Helens B and was a convincing 10 -4 win to us.

Third round we were against Black Country Mondays, which we fought a hellish battle with but came out victorious. With a quality finish to win us the match by Dave Dean. The result being 10 -8 to us.

Our round 4 match was against Whitney, down to last 64 teams but they edged it 10 -8, so that finished our progression into the last 32.

I must acknowledge and say a big thank you to Malcolm Johnston and Lorraine Fivey, who's tournament experience focused us on what we needed to do and their win contribution in the K O's was invaluable in how far we went.

Special mentions must go to John Bowden 100%, Dave Chilvers 75%, Darren Madden 57%, Darren Stocker and Mark Tart 50%, who really kept us in the game.

Thank you to all the other members of our team who contributed to the fantastic team spirit and making it a great weekend.

Romney B has really come alive this season in division 3 and we will fight for promotion into division 2.

Well done everyone

Dave Clarke (captain)
