After the Christmas and New Year break the pool teams from all around Crawley met up to kick-off the second half of the current Winter season.

In the Premier Division we see both Special K and Raiders sprint out of the traps winning 12-1 and 11-2 respectively.

Fairways only managed nine points from their match against Pocket Knockers.

Currently Special K are top with 112 points, Fairways second on 95 points and Raiders in third on 90 points.

Relegation zone in the Premier Division has Copthorne Beachbums, Pocket Knockers and Casablankas, however the points are still close with the midtable and a long way to go before any of these teams should worry.

Not a great start for Division 1’s OOOooouusshh this year as they suffer only their third loss of the season at the hands of the Nomads, this now sees them share joint third with New Moon Rejects who just scraped a 7-6 win over Windmill A. JCB hold the top slot by just two points.

Relegation looms for Moon Catz, Steamy Llama & Furburgers, but after only their second win of the season for Furburgers this week will we see a new year’s resolution from them to win more and stay up?

Division 2 is still dominated by Samuel Johnson, who hold the top slot. The Inn-Crowd remain second with Rocketeers now in third after a 7-6 victory over The Johnson.

Still two weeks to go until the midway point for this division but it looks certain that the top two positions will remain the same at the half way point.

There are only six points between third and eighth places so this a long way from being over.

This week we see the quarter finals of both the Crawley Observer Knockout Cup and the Windmill Consolation shield.

In the KO Cup we have the White Knight up against The Inn Crowd, Raiders play JCB, Special K against Fairways and Moon Catz against Rugby Club. In the Consolation shield; Copthorne Beachbums take on Magnificent 7, Casablankas play Mavericks, Downsman play Pocket Knockers and finally New Moon Rejects take on Windmill Original.

All these sides are looking for that slot in the semi finals of their respective competitions. For details see www.crawleypoolleague.co.uk.
