BACK-TO-BACK GOLDEN WINS FOR NECK
Andy Neck has plenty to smile about as he is the first player to have won back-to-back Gold Waistcoat Championship titles. He is pictured here with the overall runner-up Steve Brookshaw. Both players have shown commitment and excellent consistency this season and are worthy of their ranking above some of the best players in the region. Click here for more details.

Thanks to all at the South West Snooker Academy, Gloucester who, as is the norm, made everyone welcome and sponsored the event. A special mention for EASB Referee Nick Harry for his excellent refereeing throughout the day.

This time 100% of the entry fees went as prize money!

CRUCIBLE EXPERIENCE RUBS OFF ON ROGERS
Michael Rogers paid a visit to the Crucible, Sheffield recently to watch snookers best in the World Championships. This seems to have paid dividends resulting in a victory over North Devon potter Mitch Wood in the penultimate Silver Waistcoat event of the season. As for the overall title, Haydon Pinhey only has to turn up at the final event to claim the overall title. Click here for a report and more details.
