Snookerbacker Classic Gloucester: Four More Through to Grand Finals

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 5:03 pm

The weekend in Gloucester saw four more faces qualify to this season’s Snookerbacker Classic Grand Finals on April 3rd as Leo Fernandez, Sam Craigie and former Grand Finalists Ryan Causton and James Brown added their names to the list of this season’s possible winners.

Saturday in particular saw a very high standard of play with 7 centuries in all, which were to be added to on Sunday to make a total of ten in all for the weekend, with 16 in total already we’re well on the way to smashing the 20 made in the entire event last season. Saturday also saw last season’s semi-finalist Phil O’Kane steal top spot from Tom Barton in the break table with a 136 total clearance, Tom has some consolation in that he is perched at the top of the Order of Merit table with a chance to make Grand Finals Day through this route.

Full results from Saturday can be found here

Leo Fernandez scored very heavily all day and must be a big contender for Grand Finals Day.

So it’s really warming up nicely and promises again to be a great year for amateur snooker. Remember this year we have more prize money than ever and all players kicking off Grand Finals day will be just four wins from a £3000 pay day. Our next stops are Liverpool and Glasgow before returning to Gloucester for the final qualifying weekend and the Grand Finals.
