Harvey Bounces Back with a 147

Harvey Chandler September 2016Harvey Chandler was in pretty good form this Saturday when he reach the final of WEBSF Gold Waistcoat event 5 at Top Q, Gloucester. However, Andy Symons (Tavistock) went one better by taking the deciding frame after Harvey missing a difficult brown. This was sweet revenge for Andy having lost to Harvey in a decider in the final of event 4 at the 147 Club, Swindon a month ago…..more about this later in the week as today Harvey made a 147 break on the match table whilst waiting for his next match at a tournament at Breakers, Leicester. Harvey lost in the quarters, probably due to being on a high after the 147, as is often the case.

The break was witnessed by many people including Ben Woolastons mum who was running the event, Harvey got got a richley deserved round of applause. Furthermore, Harvey is the second person to hit a 147 on that table behind 5 times world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan, who hit a 147 in a exhibition at the club just over a year ago.

Harvey is sponsored by Colin Mitchell, Rushden Windmill Snooker and Dunstable Snooker Club

Well done Harvey, push on!

Congratulations to Andy & Beth Symons who now have a son. Michael arrived ten weeks early weighing in at 3lb 1oz, both Beth and Michael are doing well but Andy has a smile that will need a surgical procedure to remove

I understand a Parris special is on order 😉
