Pollard wins snooker cup in October half-term
SALISBURY teenager Ally Pollard was “thrilled” just to have reached the final of the half-term Cuestars Snooker Day.
But the 16-year-old “couldn't believe it” when he collected his first winner's trophy from Cuestars director John Hunter.
Pollard beat his clubmate Callum McDonald on the final black on their home tables at Salisbury Snooker Club (SSC).
In the aggregate-points group stages, the Cuestars Bronze Tour player edged Kaine Petty, from Fordingbridge, also on the final black and that gave him just enough points to qualify for the final.
Having broken his duck, Pollard said: “Hopefully, there will be more to come.”
Elsewhere, SSC player John Hunter, 47, lost out to Wayne Muddiman in the Cuestars South of England Seniors (40+) Tour.
Hunter didn't lose a frame until the final of the first leg of seven at Chandler's Ford Snooker Club but complied a century along the way.
The two lock horns in the second leg of seven at Jesters Snooker Hall, Swindon on Sunday, November 17.
