WILL Forster was crowned the Six-Reds Challenge champion at the Cuestars finals day in Swindon.
The 16-year-old from Wickham edged 12-year-old Harry Wyatt (Ferndown) 2-1 on the black in the final at Jesters Snooker Club.
The Six-Reds Challenge replaced the Plate competition, used in ranking events, for all players who don’t qualify for the main knockouts. As is usual, players from all three tours compete together but off handicaps.
Guest professional Joe Perry presented the trophies.
