THE winter league is now at the halfway point, with still all to play for in the second half of the season.

Prince A are currently leading the way in Division One with WMC Legends, having a very good season, in second place.

Pete Guest (Prince B) is leading the stats with 17/20 wins.

In Division Two, Benks B are top, closely followed by Blue Mugge, who are having a great season after narrowly avoiding relegation last season. Adam Beff and Pete Hudson (both Bodgers B) and Steve Binns (Blue Mugge) are heading the stats with 15/20 wins.

In Division Three, new boys from The Plough at Endon are joint top with Bodgers D. Phil Rogers (Plough) is top of the stats with 16/18 wins.

The knockout cups have now reached the semi-finals stages with quarter finals being played over the last two weeks over two legs.

In the main cup, Prince D had a great win over Prince A. Having been 5-1 down at one stage in the first leg, they clawed it back to just a 7-5 deficit.

The second leg was tense, with many errors, but at the interval it was 9-9. Prince D then reeled off 4 frames in a row to end up 13-9 victors.

Prince B were convincing winners over Division Three side Benks C who had a great cup run.

WMC Legends were made to work hard against Benks B, winning 14-10.

Black Lion, Cheddleton from Division Two made it into the semi-final draw with a convincing win over division one side Snooker Centre 15-9.

In the Subsidiary Cup, Prince C beat Cattle Market 15-9 and the Priory beat Sea Lion 13-9. The Plough are yet to play Benks B.

The biggest shock of the round saw Bodgers D from Division Three beating Division One's Centre of Excellence 13-12.

The first leg ended 6-6 and Bodgers turned up with only five players for the second leg, thus forfeiting two frames.

They levelled the match 12-12 so there was a captain's choice sudden death play-off. Greg Johnston cleared up brilliantly over Ben Duffield to see Bodgers into the semis.

The league is always interested in sponsors or donations.

Over the years, a number of league trophies have been lost through either through pubs closing or disrepair.

Any local company or individual wishing to sponsor a trophy, possibly in memory of someone, should visit www.leekpoolleague.co.uk.
