Riley cleans up in the Plate

WILTSHIRE teenage Riley Ellis has collected his first snooker trophy of the season.

The 14-year-old from Clyffe Pypard won the competition for non-qualifiers during the first legs of the Cuestars Under-21 Gold, Silver and Bronze Tours at Salisbury Snooker Club.

Ellis, who is sponsored by Swindon-based Save On Tyres, missed out on a place in the Silver knockout.

But, receiving a 14-point handicap start, he beat women’s world number 26 and Gold Tour player Chloe White in the Plate final.

The second legs of ten are at Waterlooville Sports Bar on Sunday, October 7.
