Lloyd collects £400 at WSB Pro-Am

MARK Lloyd pocketed £400 prize money for winning the latest Pro-Am at Waterlooville Sports Bar.

It came a week after he landed the English Under-21 Championship title in Sheffield.

The 19-year-old from Gosport cleared the table with a 90 break to wrap up a 4-1 victory over home player Jamie Wilson in the final.

Earlier, Lloyd beat Peter Devlin (London) 4-2, Steven Hughes (Chandler’s Ford) 4-0 and Labeeb Ahmed (Chessington) 4-1.

He said: “I was consistent throughout the day. I didn’t buzz by any means but managed to get the win.”

Lloyd also praised organiser Dave Lewis for a “brilliantly run” event.

Wilson recorded three fine wins en route to the final.

The 15-year-old from Havant, who collected £200, overcame Bradley Cowdroy (Bournemouth) 4-1, Ryan Mears (Aldershot) 4-2 and Connor Benzey (Eastleigh) 4-1.

Reflecting on the final, Wilson said: “He played very well.

“Overall, it was a good day and I was very pleased with it.”

Semi-finalists Benzey and Ahmed went home with £125 apiece.
