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.
