First snooker title for Harry Wilson

HARRY Wilson has stepped out of the shadow of his England international brother Jamie and claimed his first title.

The 12-year-old from Havant was crowned champion of the Monday Junior Snooker League at Waterlooville Sports Bar this week.

Wilson finished the 20-week second season 13 points clear of defending champion Zak Truscott.

Owen Jenkins was nine points further back in third.

A high break of 40 means Wilson has earned promotion from the Cuestars Under-21 Bronze Tour.

“It’s given me a lot of confidence for the Silver Tour,” he said.

And reflecting on the new junior league that starts next Monday, the talented left-hander added: “I can’t wait for the new season. Hopefully, I’ll win it again.”

World Snooker coach Tim Dunkley runs snooker sessions for under-19s from 4.30-6.30pm every Monday and Wednesday and junior pool sessions from 4.30-6.30pm every Thursday.
