Snookerbacker Classic 2016: Slessor Shines in Derby

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 8:00 am

Sunday saw the third qualifying contest of this season’s Snookerbacker Classic and this time it was the turn of the North East’s Elliot Slessor to clinch his place at Grand Finals Day in a day of real quality on the baize.

Elliot without his prize because referee Rob Spencer forgot it.

 We haven’t seen Elliot competing in the SB Classic since the very first one back in 2012 as he’s been busy on the professional circuit since. But he came through an extremely tough field and managed to knock out 2014 champion Ant Parsons on his way to victory in the final against Tom Barton who had earlier knocked in breaks of 131 and 127 to knock out comeback king David Roe.

I’d like to thank Mark Jones for directing the tournament on my behalf and for the hat which is pictured above. I’d not like to thank referee Rob Spencer, who forgot to take Elliot’s prize with him, hence him holding a piece of paper in the picture. I’ll be having stern words with Rob at the next qualifier in Leeds this Saturday, the draw for which can be viewed here.
