24/01/22: Progress in the Silver Salver for the Pickwick in the 2nd Round match away at Bellegrove Flyers pushed the Pickwick into the Quarter Final in this competition's inaugral season.

The Piledriver won back to back frames and Rafa long doubled a sumptious black to put us firmly in control. After an impressive clearance from the oppo, Bedtime showed good positional skills to put the Pickwick on the hill and Juggy jumped in after an unforced error to wrap up the tie 8-3. Banana skin firmly avoided and we move into the next round.

20/01/22: Smiles all around on Pickwick faces as we won a vital relegation battle against the team one place below us, and put valuable daylight between us and the dropzone. Away at Eltham Terrace Nuthouse, we started uncomfortably but gradually grew into the match to dominate the mid section and close it out with a 9-6 triumph. The pool was far from free flowing and littered with unforced errors, with the knuckles of pockets coming into play on many ocassions, to alter the course of frames. Rafa's first hat trick of the season couldn't have been more timely, as he held his nerve to mop up. Gaf nicked a couple of crucial ones and Juggy played nicely to polish off a brace of wins, including the last one of the night to put some distance between ourselves and our opponents. The Pickwick have now risen to 5th in the table after results from elsewhere.
