The professional game has been on hiatus since the Australian Goldfields Open and returns next week with the first European Tour event of the campaign in Riga, which represents a maiden pro tournament for Latvia.

Meanwhile, Ben Harrison (pictured), a 22 year-old from Wiltshire, has won the English amateur championship, snooker’s oldest tournament having first been contested in 1916.

Among the previous winners are Rex Williams, Ray Reardon, John Spencer, Jimmy White and Nigel Bond. Ronnie O’Sullivan reached the final in 1991 when aged just 15 but was beaten by Steve Judd.

Amateur snooker is in a healthy state worldwide. The International Billiards and Snooker Federation is comprised of around 70 national governing bodies, a vast network of players and competitions.

However, in the UK, the amateur game lacks the numbers it once did because there are fewer places in which to play. Snooker clubs have shut down at an alarming rate in the last decade. The smoking ban was certainly a factor in this. Snooker clubs have never been solely about snooker. They are also social hubs where people went for a smoke and a drink and a chat and, yes, a game of snooker.

To start  I would like to say well done to Nottinghamshire B on our 2nd Victory and unlucky to Leicestershire on the loss.

Now the Result:
Nottinghamshire B 40-24 Leicestershire B

A great day of snooker at "The Towers" Mansfield, which saw a 1 sided mornings play by the Nottinghamshire lads (with very solid performances all round) and a more competitive afternoons play for Leicestershire. At the mid way point Notts were up 23-9 but Leicestershire came out fighting after our lovely MASSIVE buffet and made sure their pride was kept intact.

Man of the match for Notts was : Chris Hackett who was Pointed out By the Leicestershire captain Scott
(to be fair we could've had 4 man of the match winners, Steve Burrows, Craig McMorran and Neil Elliot being the others, I wish I had more trophy's and in the end Scott decided)

Leicestershire man of the match was chosen by myself and Scott was: Dave Keogh

Notts Highest break went to: Craig McMorran with a 41

Leicestershire Highest break went to: Steve Grimble also with a 41

A massive thanks to all that played, it was a great day and everybody played in the correct spirit of the game.

A big thanks to "The Towers" for a great venue and hospitality as always and the Buffet was lovely

A big thanks to our sponsors:

Assuming I'm not stepping on Terry's toes putting this result up (he does some very nice detailed ones!)....

I started well in a small way, by getting several one colour breaks in the first frame, with Terry struggling to get started. I won this one surprisingly quickly having built a good lead.
Apart from us both struggling at the start of the 2nd, it was the opposite of the first, with Terry starting to pot well half way through and took the frame, helped along a bit by some poor safety by myself.
I don't remember much about the third frame, except Terry had some terrible luck around the last red or so...going in off, then fouling by potting the pink by accident. This made it easy for me to take the frame.
Very scrappy last frame I think, I just remember that I needed the pink for the frame, but Terry needed pink and black. This difference proved enough for me to take this frame and match.
Hard luck Terry, this could have EASILY been a draw if not for a few strange happenings! Good luck in your last match and hope to bump into you next season, maybe in a comp! :)

Unfortunately, despite me leaving Ashley a morning reminder on his voicemail, he failed to show up for this fixture. I left at 8.30pm after waiting an hour.

At least instead of enduring one of my tepid draws, I got to double the viewing figures and watch some of the Commonwealth Games at a very quiet BCI.
