On behalf of all the LBSO committee i would like to wish everyone associated with the LBSO a safe and very merry Christmas as we all know it will not be our usual festivities but please try to enjoy what we are allowed to do within the restrictions we are all under.

I hope you all have a happy new year and that soon we will be able to resume our snooker that we have all missed so much throughout 2020.

Best regards,
Paul Grimes LBSO league secretary.

12 Nov 2020**CANCELLATION OF THE 2020/21 SEASON**

To all involved with the LBSO it is with regret that the committee have come to the decision we will not be able to run the 2020/21 season. This is obviously due to grass roots sports having ceased due to the restrictions imposed in the COVID 19 pandemic.

We have delayed the announcement as long as we could but in light of the imposition of the second lockdown we are now past the cut off point for when we felt we could successfully run the delayed season.

We are already in receipt of the majority of entrance fees that have been paid for the season, thank you to all clubs that have paid or had previously committed to pay.

With regard the combined league and competition fees already paid for 2020/21 season, it is the agreed opinion of the committee these should be retained and simply carry over to the 2021/22 season, which will hopefully commence on time.

Bob Patterson as Treasurer will post more details about this and other options , and be in contact with captains separately in the next few days, which will also include instructions to those teams that have yet to pay.
(An email has been circulated to team captains on Sunday 15th November)

We are planning that in the new year we can complete the outstanding competitions and if time allows we are hopeful we can restart competitions on a pay as you enter basis to keep snooker alive in the Leeds area until we arrive at a time to resume league snooker.

If you have any queries regarding the league please contact me Paul Grimes. Any competition issues should be directed to Mark Ball or Paul Marlow and any financial issues to Bob Patterson. Contact details can be found on the website please direct your questions to the relevant persons.

From all of the committee we hope you continue to stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all in due course.

Paul Grimes LBSO League secretary.

14 Oct 2020**MARTIN BOOTH - RIP**

It is with great sadness, I have to inform you all of the death of Martin Booth.
Martin was a long established player at Rothwell WMC for at least the last 35 years.
His massive dedication to this South Leeds club extended beyond playing, also being a member of the committee for many years.
Martin died yesterday morning after a short illness.
All our best wishes are sent to his family at this very difficult time.
Bob Patterson.
On behalf of the LBSO.

14 Oct 2020**Competitions Suspended**

In light of the recent government guidelines and with the whole of West Yorkshire now put under Tier 2 restrictions which came into force today, the committee have made the decision to suspend all outstanding competitions with immediate effect until further notice.

A final decision on the 2020/2021 season - league and competitions, will be made and posted on the website in due course.

Thanks to everyone for their cooperation and patience throughout these uncertain times.

Stay safe - LBSO Committee
