TWO nine-year-olds took home their first Cuestars trophies from the seventh legs of the South of England Under-21 Tours at Fareham Snooker Club.
O’Shay Scott and Owen Jenkins had both missed out in a three-way play-off from the same round-robin group.
And they met again in the final of the Plate for non-qualifiers.
Scott, now in his second season, beat Jenkins, who was playing in only his second event.
Scott is based at Chandlers Ford Snooker Club while Jenkins is a product of the junior leagues at Waterlooville Sports Bar.
