SOUTH LONDON & KENT
POOL ALLIANCE

for "World Rules" across the counties

SILVER SALVER

A new team knock out competition will be launched this coming winter season.
Essentailly it is a "plate event" for the 1st and 2nd round losers of the Founders Cup.
The rationale is to provide more pool for some of the teams that regularly exit the Founders Cup in the early rounds and thus creates voids in the fixture schedule.
Up for grabs will be a new trophy in the form of a silver salver, hence the name.
All the 1st round Founders Cup losers will enter the 1st round of the Silver Salver and compete at the same time as the Founders Cup 2nd round. The Founders Cup 2nd round losers will join the winners of Silver Salver 1st round and these teams will play out to an eventual winner. The dates will run in tandem with the Founders Cup, however the 2nd round of the Silver salver will take place on a nominated Monday evening. This is to re-align both the Founders Cup and Silver Salver to the same Quarter Final stage later in the competition.

The match format is the same as regular matches however the match ends once a team reaches 8 frames won.
Please use the usual result sheets issued at the start of the season.
The away team breaks in frame 1 and breaks then alternate throughout the match.
The provision of food by the home venue is not mandatory in all cup matches.
Where 2 teams who use the same match table are drawn at home in the same round, then an alternative table, venue, or match date should be sought by the team drawn out later in the draw.
Teams in the Founders Cup take preference over teams in the Sliver Salver if teams share a table and there is a fixture clash.

A flow chart to explain how the Silver Salver will operate and how it dovetails in with the Founders Cup.

In the 2021/22 season the dates for the semi finals and final will be announced at the end of the season. Some teams involved may be competing in other cup or play offs so to ease fixture congestion the end of season finals will be arranged once the competing teams are known.
