A first appearance in the LITEtask pro-am series for Jamie Cope in Event 5 saw his campaign kick off in great style, winning through the strong 80-player field and leaping into 12th place on the series ranking list.
Another hugely impressive performance from Simon Blackwell helped him to reach his second final of the series, his consistency and grit further rewarded with 2nd place on the overall list.
Gary Wilson (4th in the overall list, winner of the Grand Finals Day in the previous LITEtask series) and the dependable Barry Pinches were the losing semi-finalists.
There was also a solid performance from our friend Bex Kenna, who reached the last 16 of the event, only to lose out at the hands of series leader Peter Lines. Bex is quickly working her way up through the ranks on the World Women’s Tour, after a breakthrough first season which included a 3-2 comeback victory over Reanne Evans at Dunstable Snooker Club in the Connie Gough Trophy 2017 semi-final.
There’s still everything to play for in the final event of the series as the top 32 could shake up significantly and, as always, with the generous LITEtask sponsorship, the prize pot is significant.
Event 6 is on the 12th November at the Northern Snooker Centre.

Billy Castle’s final act as an amateur snooker player was to clinch the EASB’s season showpiece, the English Amateur Championship Final 2017, defeating three-time winner David Lilley 10-8.
You can see the full match (both sessions) here. Full match stats appear below.
It’s a special weekend in the snooker world as the curtain is raised on the 2017/18 professional snooker season in Riga, Latvia, while the English Amateurs are busy resolving the last remaining questions from the 2016/17 season at the South West Snooker Academy.
Whether or not you have access to Eurosport TV to follow the top professional players, we strongly recommend you keep a close eye on the talented amateur players who’ll be vying to take their place on the Pro Tour in the fullness of time.
On Saturday we’ll be bringing you a couple of stars of the future as the U21’s Championship is decided. Youngster Mark Lloyd takes on Lewis Gillen in our first streamed match, with a rare opportunity this weekend to simultaneously land the U18 title, when he faces Sean McAllister.
On Sunday the main event will be the 101st English Amateur Final. The Northern and Southern section finals are scheduled for Saturday, but spare a thought for Ashley Carty who misses out on his chance to qualify via the Northern section because of his involvement in Riga. As a result, three-time winner David Lilley will now await the winner of the Southern Final which pits Andrew Norman, in his home club, against Billy Castle.
We’ll have a round-up of the match scores from all the other age groups – U14, U16, U18, U40, Masters, Over 55s – as well as the Six Reds Championship final.

Once you’ve used MySnookerStats to track your snooker performance for a while, you’ll know there’s no hiding from the truth about how good you are.
We all have good days and bad days. Snooker is one of the toughest games in the world when it doesn’t seem to be happening for you – sometimes there seems to be nothing you can do to produce anything like your best.
We get that.
Sometimes, it’s nice just to take stock, reflect on the best times and remind yourself: you’ve played well before and if you keep working hard, you will play well again.
That new high break, that first victory against a rival, or your new highest rating is achievable.
So, for our Premium subscribers, we’ve built the my-personal-bests page. Check it out the next time your spirit needs lifting! :-)
Ng On Yee becomes the first new Ladies’ World Champion for a decade after eclipsing long-reigning champ Reanne Evans in the semi-final and Emma Bonney in the final.
We want you to enjoy checking your snooker stats on this website, which is why we’re in the process of redesigning all our pages to give you the best possible experience whether you’re using your mobile, tablet or a desktop computer.
We won’t always be able to tell you you’re playing well, but we can do better at presenting the truth to you!
This will be an ongoing process for some time, because there are many custom pages of statistics, especially for our Premium users, which require very careful crafting to fit on smaller screens.
If you do come across a mistake in the new pages or have any trouble viewing them, please don’t be shy about getting in touch.
The latest version of the MySnookerStats app is now available for download from the App Store.
We’ve fixed the letterboxing on newer iPhones and streamlined the process for “play again” and “replace balls” following a foul and miss.
Install it now and let us know what you think on your social medium of choice:
UPDATE: New iOS version is now available
Let’s start with the bad news. Apple’s recent update to iOS 8 has left MySnookerStats users out in the cold.
iOS 8 has somehow managed to break the Menu screen, which no longer shows up when you summon it, preventing users from ending frames, conceding, re-racking, or even ending and uploading matches – all pretty fundamental to a good snooker experience.
We’ve started on a significant overhaul of our existing app project code, all of which is required to catch up with the pace of change in how Apple likes to see things done.
We’ll take the opportunity to finally get rid of the letter-boxing on iPhone 5 models and put the extra space to better use. We’ll still be relying on Apple’s automatic scaling to get the screens right for the new big iPhones 6 and 6 Plus, because the budget won’t stretch to those – even if the GUI has to… :-)
Best estimate at the moment is that we’ll have the new version of the app in the App Store for download before the end of October. Updates will be posted on Twitter and Facebook so please follow or like us to receive those.
Meanwhile, why not dig out your old device or find an Android friend to play against?
Sorry once again for the inconvenience caused.
