First trophies for Plate finalists

BOTH Plate finalists were delighted to pick up their first Cuestars trophies.

Keegan Reed (Salisbury) beat his fellow Bronze Tour player Ryan Hughes (Chandler’s Ford) in the final of the competition for non-qualifiers at the last leg of the South of England Under-21 Tours at Salisbury Snooker Club.

It should be noted that Reed, who thinks it’s most unfair that Bronze players only receive a 28-point start from Gold players, beat the Gold rankings winner Brad Chappell in the quarter-finals.
