Snookerbacker Classic Liverpool – Details for Players and Spectators

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 11:08 am

SB A4 POSTERSunday sees the start of this season’s Snookerbacker Classic and the first place we’ll be starting the search for the new champion is in Liverpool, at George Scotts Snooker Club, or Scotties as it’s known to the locals.

There is plenty of home interest there including former Grand Finalist Anthony Jeffers, as well as Josh Mulholland who impressed last season and narrowly missed out on a place in the Grand Finals as did Brian Robertson the previous year. Clayton Humphries is also in the mix and he is a player with a lot of ability who has so far not got going in the Classic, perhaps this will be the year he makes his mark.

The Welsh are also represented by two very strong players in the much improved Alex Taubman and the dangerous Rhys Williams, who played very well at this venue last season in arguably one of the matches of the tournament against Mulholland. 

Another former Grand Finalist and fellow Morrissey obsessed potter Andy Marriott is also in the field which includes familiar names like Jack Bradford, John Eames and Billy Brown and a few new faces, including one former professional Andrew Photiou, who is playing in the Classic for the first time. 

Add to this the small matter of the defending SB Classic champion Brett Miller beginning the defense of his title against Jeffers in Round 1, and we have a really high quality starting field for Qualifier Number 1. The winner progresses to the Grand Finals on April 2nd, can Brett return to the big stage at the first time of asking?

The full draw can be viewed here where you can also keep track of the results as they happen and all first round matches will commence at 10.15 am on the dot. Players should be aware of the terms and conditions regarding late arrivals.

The dress code is polo or collared shirt, trousers and shoes.

All players should arrive at the venue in plenty of time for their opening match and be prepared for a roll-on, roll-off day. In other words, have a decent breakfast if you are planning on going deep. The winner is guaranteed at least £250 and will be just 4 matches away from the £3000 first prize, which also includes a frame at The Crucible as part of the Snooker Legends Tour a few days after the Grand Finals. 

Full details of the Snookerbacker Classic can be viewed here, including those all important terms and conditions.

All matches are the best of seven frames.

The referees for the day will be Rob Spencer and Peter Bennett who will be roaming for the first two rounds before donning their white gloves to referee the semi-finals and final.

Anyone who would like to come and enjoy the snooker is more than welcome at this excellent club.
