Gordon Jefferies
It is with great sadness to announce that Gordon Jefferies (The Judge) passed away suddenly on October 5th aged 82 years. A service to celebrate his life will be held at Gornal Wood crematorium at 12.20 on Monday 3rd of November. Gordon who was known to everybody as the Judge played the majority of his snooker at Goldthorn Social before moving to Sedgley ex service with his team in his later years. The Judge played league snooker from the early 50's to his last game in 2010 and had a great knowledge of angles obtained from many years of playing billiards. In season 1962/63 he achieved what the association handbook refers to as " a unique treble" where in division 2 of the billiards and snooker league he held the highest break in both snooker and billiards and the most wins in billiards. Anybody who had the pleasure of meeting the Judge will know of his infectious enthusiasm for snooker a game he loved so dearly and still played up to his death. The Judge will always be remembered as a true gentleman which many do not aspire to these days. His family and snooker friends will remember him fondly.

In Division One leaders’ & champions’ Brandhall Labour A kept the pressure up on their rivals by completing a fine 4-1  away victory at Shifnal A with solid wins from Gary Miller, Alan Hooper, Bal Sembi & Jamie Brown completing victory after the undefeated Matt Davies won one of the opening frames for Shifnal with a break of 49 after his opponent Geoff Williams had knocked in a break of 56. Keeping within touching distance of the top two are Wednesfield Cons’ A who won 4-1 for the second successive week away at Pennfields B with wins for Simon Groves, Rich Haney, Paul Harrison & Robin Bood (33) clinching victory after undefeated ex main tour professional Darryn Walker knocked in a super break of 77 to beat the previously undefeated Lee Payne for the hosts.

In Division Two this week it was a meeting of two of last season’s relegated teams from the top flight when Brandhall Labour B hosted Stafford Institute A and it was the visitors’ who came away with a tight 3-2 deciding frame victory after the first four frames were shared when Mark Bishop & Chris Ward won for the visitors’ only for Jon Bate & Chris Southall to force the decider and the last frame went all the way when Stafford’s Rob Wharne requiring one snooker on the pink against Brandhall’s Chris Crumpton robbed the hosts’ of a fine win when gaining the snooker required on the pink and potting the final two balls to claim a vital victory for the Institute and keep the pressure on early season leaders’ Sedgley WMC B. Smethwick Labour pulled themselves into mid table and ensured their hosts’ for the night Sedgley Ex Service B remained bottom of the pile when they completed a fine 3-2 away victory after wins for Terry Flukes, Shaun Smith & Dean Skidmore who fired in a fine break of 60 in his frame to complete victory as the Ex Service hit back with wins for Lee Slater & Simon Biddulph.

In Division Three Essington WMC A moved into the top three when they visited promotion rivals Bilston Sports & Social and came away with a 4-1 victory thanks to wins from Ben Nicholls, Stuart Smith, Mitchel Lowbridge & Rob Perry who fired them into a 4-0 lead where it was left to Ryan Morris to win the final frame of the night for the hosts and avoid the whitewash. Wednesbury Cons B also moved into promotion contention when they visited struggling Wednesfield Cons B defeating them 3-2  in a deciding frame after the first four frames were shared when Ben Wright and Gary Haynes won for the hosts only for the visitors’ to force a decider with wins for James Rasmussen and Dean Simpson where it was left to the visitors’ Paul Piddock to clinch the deciding frame and match for Wednesbury.

In Division Four two of the top teams met this week in what is proving to be a very competitive division this season as top of table Wednesfield Cons C hosted Codsall Cons B and ran out 3-2 winners with victories for Dean Evans, Pete Slatcher & John Schneider ensuring the points for the hosts and leaders’ as Codsall hit back through Dave Ryder & Lee Guest to maintain respectability and keep them in the promotion hunt.

In Division Five this week early season table toppers’ and undefeated Wolverhampton Electric C who were promoted from division six last season are beginning to find this division a stroll in the park as they this week dumped their visitors’ for the evening Forty Four Club B at the bottom of the table with a resounding 5-0 whitewash with superb wins for Andrew Porter, Eric Taylor, David East, Ian Thompson & Wayne Banks taking them four points clear at the top.
