Jamie Wilson pockets £80 in Coulsdon

JAMIE Wilson pocketed £80 prize money for winning an under-16 tournament in London.

The 14-year-old from Havant edged Gosport-based Olly Gibbs 2-1 in the final of the event at Frames Sports Bar, Coulsdon.

Wilson trailed the former English Under-14 Champion in the decider before snatching victory on the final black.

The Cuestars Gold Tour player had topped his four-man round-robin group despite losing one match.

He then dispatched Premier Junior Tour player Mickey Joyce (Basingstoke) 2-0 and Jack Haley (Harlow) 2-0 to set up a clash with his 14-year-old travelling companion and practice partner, who collected £40.

Oliver Sykes (Chandler’s Ford) progressed all the way to the last-four without dropping a frame but then lost 2-0 to Gibbs.

The 12-year-old recorded breaks of 61, 51, 35 and 34.
