Plate victory consolation for high-flying Chloe

CHLOE White warmed up for the Eden Women’s Masters at Cueball Derby this weekend with victory in the Plate competition at Greenbaize Snooker Club, Bournemouth.

The 15-year-old from Havant suffered a shock group-stage exit in the fifth leg of the Cuestars South of England Under-21 Bronze Tour sponsored by Bells Decor.

Essex lad Thomas Saunders lost his first two matches and needed to beat Riley Ellis, the eventual tournament winner, and White, winner of the third leg in Swindon, to force a three-way play-off for the second qualifying spot.

Saunders produced the goods against the high-flying pair and then won a dramatic play-off against White and her brother Callum.

White bounced back in the Plate to beat Ally Pollard in the final.

The sixth leg of ten is at Top Spot Snooker Club, Havant, on Sunday, February 5.
