To end speculation, WBL would like to confirm that Jim Leacy remains an integral member of the WBL board of directors.
The IBSF have stated to WBL in writing that they are unanimous in their decision not to cooperate with WBL whilst Jim Leacy remains on our board and despite many requests, no formal reasons have been given for this action.
Jim Leacy is a very committed member of the team who gives his time freely. He has an exemplary record with the board of World Billiards Ltd and will remain on the WBL board with the full support of both WBL and WPBSA.
WBL Chairman Alan Chamberlain said …
Our plans to run the Billiards World Championship in Leeds this October and all other events on our calendar remain in place. World Billiards Ltd will continue to promote Billiards on an international basis and we are looking forward to delivering our World Championship to new territories in the coming years.
On behalf of the WBL Board, I would like to thank you all for your continued support. We remain committed to the game and delivering the best opportunities to play and compete at English Billiards.
The Board of WBL
