Rory Champion collects a trophy on his debut

RORY Champion had a debut to remember on the Cuestars junior snooker circuit.

The 15-year-old from Bramley near Guildford won the Plate competition during the fourth legs of the Under-21 Gold, Silver and Bronze Tours on home tables at Woking Snooker Centre.

Champion beat University of Southampton student Isaac Wong in the final of the competition for those players not qualifying for the main knockouts.

Three other Bronze Tour players based at Woking SC were among the 55 entrants for the three events sponsored by the host club.

Oliver Penney lost 2-1 to tournament runner-up Freddie Morrison in the last-16. Charlie Underhill and Stanley Sims made group-stage exits.

Jesters Snooker Club, Swindon, hosts the fifth legs of ten on Sunday, January 7.
