Northern Quarter Pool League

April Meeting – Deliberate Fouls Again

Well, no sooner have we started the season and we already have a dispute regarding our favourite subject.

The events occurred during the Gallon game on the 19th March featuring the Burton Lodgers v Burton Arms.

The dispute was first raised after the game had been completed, and followed up by a written complaint from the Burton Arms player.

A referee was not appointed for this game.

After discussion of the event and circumstances at the meeting, no action was taken. The following guidance was delivered.

  1. All games must have an appointed referee including Gallon games.
  2. Any ruling must be made by the referee at the time of the alleged act.
  3. Any dispute must be resolved before the match continues.
  4. If a resolution cannot be reached then the game must be abandoned and referred to the League.
