The Milkman to attend Cuestars finals day

CUESTARS is delighted to announce the name of the professional who will attend this year’s under-21 finals and presentation day.

Robert Milkins agreed this week to be our special guest at Jesters Snooker Club, Swindon, on Sunday, May 19.

The world number 38 will play exhibition frames against the competition winners and present the season’s trophies.

Known as The Milkman, he was the first player to record a maximum break in the qualifying rounds of the World Championship. His 147 came against Mark Selby in 2006 in Prestatyn.

It earned him £5,000. He would have pocketed £147,000 if he’d made it in the next round at the Crucible. Ouch!

The father of “two gorgeous kids” is from Bristol but now based in Gloucester. He turns 43 on March 6.
