Nine reasons to be cheerful

JOHN Hunter has selected his favourite nine recent achievements by Cuestars members ahead of the new season which starts on September 11.

As preparations continue for the 2016/17 campaign, Hunter reckons that the 24 sponsors will “enhance the level of our competitions”. Talking about his vision for Cuestars, he said: “It’s to provide a grassroots platform to help players meet their snooker aspirations.“Cuestars at its best is a family of snooker players competing hard but fairly against each other and enjoying each other’s achievements.“We now have players at all ages achieving national success.”
