Inspired Wayne Cooper puts Bradford No 1 back on rails in Yorkshire Inter-District Snooker League

Wayne Cooper was in sublime form in defeating classy opponent Giles Behbood

BRADFORD No 1 got their season back on track with a 5-1 victory against Harrogate at Undercliffe Cricket Club in the Yorkshire Inter-District Snooker League.

Having drawn one and lost two in their opening three matches – an unusual sequence of results for a normally consistent side – it should be remembered that those defeats came against Sheffield No 1 and Castleford No 1, who are fancied to go all the way this campaign.

**Yorkshire Snooker League Captains and Delegates**



Hi All

Just a note for the future please, can all captains from the snooker teams in the Yorkshire League make sure the result is sent through to Terry Crofts as soon as possible after matches are played, so he can update the league tables as quickly as possible. I know some players are contacting me to find out what league standings are, but results are not filtering through to Terry quickly enough at the minute, therefore the table is not updated as he or you would like.

Terry runs the Yorkshire Inter-District League and needs the results first and foremost. Terry’s contact number is 07748 434032 and email is terrycrofts@gmail.com

Thanks guys


This Sunday is the Yorkshire Snooker Handicap at Cue Gardens. Registration is 9.00 to 9.30am, £10 entry fee and will be best of 5 frames throughout the event. Dress code applies which is no jeans, trainers, collarless t-shirts etc, shoes, trousers and shirt/polo shirt is preferred. Please can you pass the information to your players should they wish to attend.

Any queries please give me a shout.

Thanks again
