Stephanie Foley from Carlow and current Irish Intermediate Snooker number 1 ranked player is still on track to retain her number 1 spot as the season nears its final event which will be held in early 2022.
Other players moving up the rankings are Jennifer Earle (Dublin) from 5th last season to 4th spot provisionally, Christine Carr (Kildare) is back in the top 4 at 3rd place up from 6th. Tina Keogh (Offaly) is up from 9th to 2nd place, a great result for her, Suzanne Randle (Limerick) is back into the top 16 at 10th place from 34th again a good result for the Limerick woman.
Players going down the rankings are Carrie Randle (Wicklow) from 2nd to 6th, Joanna Ward (Kildare) 3rd to 5th, Megan Randle (Wicklow) 4th to 9th spot and Emirjeta Doda (Dublin) 8th to 12 position provisionally.
With a host of newcomers to the tour over the past two months we see Louise Maher from Kilkenny take 8th place after two Intermediate wins during the season so far, Grushenka Arnold from Dublin has gained points from her runner up and a semi final places in two events to put her 11th on the rankings. Michelle Morris from Donegal is into the top 16 at 13th place after two events and Elizabeth Lynch from Offaly is placed 14th after a few good runs in recent events.
Other newcomers to Intermediate snooker are Nafeesa Naz (Dublin) 75th, Laura Hughes (Limerick) 76th, Christine Henderson (Donegal) 106th and Elizabeth Killeen (Galway) 107th after just one event and these players are very capable of at least a top 32 place by seasons end.
Players remaining in the top 16 are Valerie Maloney (Laois) holding firm at 7th place and is hoping to keep her place in the top 8 by the end of the season. Aoimheann Kearney and Fiona Carr both from Kildare are in 15th and 16th spots respectively.
With an event still to be played in 2022 a top 8 place is still achievable for a number of players while a top 16 is very much on the cards for those listed down the rankings. A top 16 place will qualify you for the National Intermediate Championship in 2022, so still all to play for.
With 14 counties represented at Intermediate level is a fantastic result from our initiatives over the past 7 years and a total of 325 females now make up the National Intermediate Ranking List since established in 2014
