Wyatt ends eight weeks to remember with victory in Bournemouth

HARRY Wyatt ended a roller-coaster two months of snooker with victory in the ninth leg of the Cuestars Under-21 Silver Tour in Bournemouth.

The 13-year-old from Ferndown said it was “very nice” to collect his third winner’s trophy of the season at his home club, Greenbaize Snooker Club.

Wyatt, who didn’t drop a single frame all day, beat Asten Sahota (Southampton) 2-0 in the final to deny his opponent top spot in the rankings.

It’s certainly been an eventful eight weeks for the teenager.

February 4: Wins the second leg of the EPSB Under-16 Junior Series Midlands in Leicester.

February 11: Makes his maiden century in the Joe Perry Under-21 Super Series in Newbury.

February 19: Wins the Cuestars Under-21 Silver Tour leg in Woking.

March 6: Loses in the last-24 of the European Under-16 Championship in Malta.

March 11: Loses in the southern final of the PowerGlide English Under-14 Championship in Woking.

March 18: Secures the EPSB Under-16 Junior Series Midlands ranking title.

April 2: Wins the Cuestars Under-21 Silver Tour leg in Bournemouth.

Wyatt admitted that missing out on the national final was a bitter pill to swallow.

He said: “It’s nice to finally win a tournament because I’ve been in a bit of a dip since the under-14s.”

And he added that he is “very grateful” for the support of Greenbaize SC.

Samuel Laxton (Portsmouth) was knocked out by Sahota in the last-four but takes a two-point lead over his title rival into the last leg. Wyatt moves up to third. Zain Jeraj (Tooting), who lost to Wyatt in the semis, is fourth.
