Black Ball is a slight variance to the standard 8 Ball game based around a different set of Rules Wasley last represented Australia back in 2013 in Blackpool England. He was also selected in 2015 and 2016 but didn’t travel with the team at that time. Prior to COVID putting a hold on the National Titles, Wasley was the WA State Captain and has previously also represented both SA and NSW at the National level. Neil J Dimer is another player that will relish the opportunity to again represent Australian when we plays in the u/20 side in which he has been named vice captain. Dimer last wore the Australian Colours back in 2018 in England when he played in the World Masters Singles. Dimer is a previous winner of the u/18 Australian Singles and 2 years ago made the Open WA Men’s State Side only to see Covid forcing the Championships to be cancelled. For Smith, who will play alongside Dimer, it will be his first time in the Green and Gold. But having already represented the State in the u/16’s National’s, Smiths steady head under pressure is expected to hold him in good stead throughout the championships. For Conroy, this will be his third Black Ball World Championships after having previously played in England and Cyprus. Conroy has also been named in the WA State Team that will be playing in the National Titles in Albury NSW later in the year. Weekly also gets another opportunity at the highest level having already represented Australia in 2018 and 2019 alongside Conroy Prior to Covid, Weekley took out the prestigious Australian Masters Black Ball title and has been a regular inclusion in both State and National 8 Ball Teams for a period of time. 8 Ball President Jeff Delbridge was elated with the selection of all the players. “ When you really think about it, it’s an amazing achievement to have 5 players out of the Goldfields that are all representing Australia at a World Level at the same time.

GOLDFLDS: GRAND TROLLEY BOYS 8 BALL CHAMPIONS20-Aug-2022
The Grand Trolley Boys did their status as being the Goldfields 8 Ball Association’s leading 8 Ball team no harm after defeating the Workers Club Young Guns 13-7 in last weekend’s 1st Division 8Ball Grand Final. Coming off a 3rd consecutive Summer Premiership, the Trolley Boys jumped to an early 4-1 lead and were never seriously challenged on the way to lifting the Winter Cup for the first time since 2019. While having to settle for the runner’s up mantle, the Workers Club’s home and away domination of the division should ensure they will be one of the sides to beat in the upcoming Summer Season. The Star and Garter Pirates celebrated long into the night after claiming the 2nd Division Premiership defeating minor Premiers the Workers Club Bridesmaids 9-3 in a one sided final After scores were locked together at 3 all, the Star and Garter stepped it up a gear reeling off the next 6 games to end a 22 year 2nd Division drought.

GOLDFLDS: 8 BALL GRAND FINALS TODAY13-Aug-2022
All 8 Ball roads will lead to the Grand Boulder this afternoon when the Goldfields 8 Ball Association hosts it’s winter Grand Finals. In first Division action, the Grand Trolley Boys earnt themselves a spot in today’s big game against the Workers Club after a hard fought 13-10 win over the Grand Suns on Thursday night. Heading into today’s final, the two best sides all season will clash in a match that on paper looks evenly matched. While the Workers Club have owned the Trolley Boys winning 4 of their 5 clashes this season, the gap between the two sides has narrowed as the season has progressed with many experts believing the final may go the distance. While the Trolley Boys will enter the final knowing when they last played the Workers in the final they won a last game classic, the Workers Club more consistent season may be the difference and are expected to make it back to back Premierships. In the second Division, minor premiers the Workers Club Bridesmaids and Star and Garter Pirates will lock horns after both sides progressed after having one sided Wins against the Grand Grandie’s and Gala Goblins respectively. The Workers Club were the dominant side all season dropping only 2 matches while the Star and Garter were also impressive in the home and away season finishing 3rd. When the two sides met twice during the season, the Workers Club were successful on both occasions and having the extra motivation to reverse last season’s Grand Final loss, the minor premiers should be able to win enough games to make it a grand day for the Workers Club. Both finals are set to commence at 3.30pm sharp with the presentation to follow.
GOLDFLDS: PERSELLO / CONROY MIXED 8 BALL DOUBLES CHAMPIONS11-Aug-2022
Megan Persello and Brody Conroy were crowned Mixed Doubles champions last weekend and in doing so defended last years victory when they defeated Jayde Baird and Jason Dimer in the final. In what was the last major event of the year, making up the top 4 was Chelsie and Brad Smith and the pairing of Sandy Gates and Wayne Daykin. Meanwhile Grand Final spots are up for grabs tonight the both the 1st and 2nd Division Semi-finals are played. In 1st Division action, premiership favourites the Workers Club Young Guns justified that status with a come from behind 2nd semi-final victory against the Grand Trolley Boys while Grand Suns ended the Voodoo’s season with an emphatic 1st Semi Final win. Tonight’s Prelim final has all the makings of a classic when Stable-mates the Grand Trolley Boys and the Grand Suns clash with an invitation to Saturday’s big dance on offer to the winner. The Trolley Boys were clearly the second best side during the home and away season while the Suns season was more up and down. In the 4 clashes during the season, the Trolley Boys prevailed on each occasion. While the Suns back half of the season has seen them produce their most consistent form, the Trolley Boys finals record in recent seasons shows their ability to lift at the right time and most 8ball experts expect them to be back on the table Saturday afternoon with a cue in hand. In the first of the 2nd Division finals, minor premiers the Workers Club Bridesmaids will put their season on the line when they host the Grand Grandies who bounced back last week knocking out the Grand Plan. While the Bridesmaids position as minor premiers was a shock to no one, the Grandies effort of finishing 2nd was one of the success stories of the season. While the Grand will be hoping momentum may inspire the troops to continue the fairy-tail, it would be a brave man to select against the Workers Club. In the final finals match, the Star and Garter Pirates will lock horns with the Gala Gobins who ended defending premiers the Gala Warriors season. After the completion of the domestic season, the Star and Garter finished in 3rd position while the Goblins ended up 5th. The Pirates will have in the back of their mind last seasons disappointing finals campaign while the Gobins will have some inner belief having won both times they have met. Picking a winner here is a complete guess, but with the knowledge of having the upper hand during the season and having a better away record than at home, the Gala may just be able to win enough games to earn themselves a Grand Final Berth.
GOLDFLDS: 8 BALL FINALS CONTINUE05-Aug-2022
8 Ball action clicks up a gear tonight when the opening round of 1st Division finals matches are played. A grand final spot is up for grabs tonight in the 2nd Semi-final when defending premiers and this season’s minor premiers the Workers Club Young Guns host traditional rivals the Grand Trolley Boys. The Workers Club were the dominant side during the home and away season dropping only 2 games which included last week’s loss to the Trolley Boys in a dead rubber, while the Trolley Boys themselves were clearly the next best side. While the Trolley Boys will take some confidence out of last week’s win, most local 8 Ball experts expect the Workers Club to flex their muscle and advance straight to the big dance. In the first of 3 Derbies across the night. the Grand Voodoo and Grand Suns cross paths in the elimination 1st semi-final. Picking the winner here is a complete guess with both sides looking evenly matched, but the Voodoo’s 3-1 win / loss record against the Suns during the home and away season might be enough of a factor to see them extend their season into next week. 2nd Division finals continue tonight with 2 elimination derbies to be played. Last weeks matches saw both the Workers Club Bridesmaids and Star and Garter Pirates earn themselves a direct path into next weeks qualifying finals while the curtain was drawn for the season for the Country Club Burrs and Criterion Chooks.

A rematch of last year’s 2nd Division Grand final will highlight the opening round of fixtures with the Workers Club and Gala Warriors clashing in the first of the double chance finals. Workers Club were the dominant side throughout the season with a 16-2 win / loss record and most experts expect them to win and earn themselves a weeks rest. In the 2nd double chance final, 2nd placed Grand Grandies will host the Star & Garter Pirates in a match that looks evenly balanced. In the 2 clashes during the season both sides secured 9-8 wins. Picking a winner here looks impossible but maybe the advantage of playing at home may tip the scales slightly in the Grands favour. In the elimination finals, Gala Goblins will be visited by the Criterion Chooks whose 2nd half of the season indicate they will be hard to beat while the Grand Plan and Country Club Burrs lock horns in the last of the finals matches.
