Double celebration for Cowdroys

THERE was a double celebration in the Cowdroy household following the sixth legs of the Cuestars Under-21 Gold, Silver and Bronze Tours at Greenbaize Snooker Club, Bournemouth.

While Adam was winning his first Bronze tournament, big brother Bradley collected the Plate trophy.

Home player Bradley, the England under-16 captain and Gold Tour rankings leader, failed to qualify for the knockout by one frame.

But the 16-year-old Premier Junior Tour player went on to beat Katie Griffin in the final of the competition for non-qualifiers.

Katie, from Swindon, is currently fifth on the Bronze Tour and received a 28-point handicap start.

Fareham Snooker Club hosts the seventh of the ten legs on Sunday, February 24.
