Blake and Lilly share Championship Tour title

THERE are joint winners of the 2020/21 Frames Sports Bar Championship Tour.

Ronnie Blake beat world number 87 Jamie Wilson in the final of the third leg to draw level with Fareham-based Dharminder Lilly.

The 25-year-old from Sutton, receiving a 14-point handicap start from his professional opponent, pocketed £150 following his 3-1 success at Waterlooville Sports Bar.

Earlier, 17-year-old Wilson fired in the day’s highest break of 103 in his last-eight victory over Lilly. He also recorded six other half-centuries in the Cuestars event sponsored by Snooker and Pool Services.

Ronnie Sullivan (Coulsdon), beaten 4-1 by Blake in his first match, went on to collect £20 for winning the Plate competition. He overcame his Frames Sports Bar clubmate Labeeb Ahmed (Chessington) 2-0 in the final.

James Hawes (Southampton) chalked up his highest Cuestars break of 88 in his Plate quarter-final victory over Jake Fowler (Coulsdon).

Only three points separated the top six at the end of the Covid-shortened season. Third-placed Ryan Mears (Aldershot) was one point adrift of the top two. Jason Pusser (Bournemouth) and Anthony Rice (Fordingbridge) finished one point further back in joint fourth and one point ahead of Carl Davies (Bournemouth)

Chandlers Ford Snooker Club hosts the first leg of the 2021/22 season on Sunday, November 7.
