Lilly impresses on World Seniors Tour

DHARMINDER Lilly (pictured) consolidated his fourth-place position on the Cuestars Satellite rankings with an excellent set of results from the World Seniors Q School World Championship amateur qualifiers.

The former IBSF World Masters champion, now living in Fareham, pocketed £900 after losing 4-2 to Philip Williams (Wales) in the final of the first event and reaching the last-four in the second tournament at The Crucible Sports & Social Club Reading.

Lilly, who won the first two Cuestars tournaments that he entered this year, also made the highest break of 122 and climbed to joint seventh in the world rankings with former professional Tony Knowles.

Matt Ford is up to 12th. Nigel Phillips impressed by reaching a quarter-final in only his second event. And John Hunter moved up to fifth place on the World Super Seniors and made a 104, the highest break in the over-55s category.

The Satellite Rankings records all prize money won by Cuestars members in regional, national and international snooker events in the current season.

Qualifying events include, but are not limited to: Cuestars, EPSB, World Snooker Tour, Pro-Ams, World Seniors Tour, World Women’s Tour, IBSF, WSF, WEBSF, WDBS and WPBSA. Only in-house competitions are excluded.

You must be a Cuestars member at the time of winning the prize money for it to be added to the Cuestars Satellite Rankings. That means a player joining now could not include anything won earlier this season.

Send your results, which must include the amount and the name of the competition, by email to [email protected] or through the contact form on the Cuestars website,, within a month of the event. View the current rankings list at:
