End of the First Half of the Season

Week 12 - 29th November is the first match of the second half of the snooker season.
Players will be able to play twice in the same evening again.

Note: LDBSA Rule 13;
Where a team is short of players, two players may play twice in a match in order to fulfil all 7 frames. No player may play twice in a match on more than one occasion in each half of the season. All eligible players for the side that is short should be entered into a random draw to decide the player(s) who will fulfil the "empty games".
