SEE VIDEO: Snooker legend Jimmy White cues up in Downham Market

Waiting for Video...

A whirlwind blew into Downham at the weekend when snooker legend Jimmy White visited the town.

More than 200 people packed into the Swan Hotel in the High Street on Sunday night to see the former UK champion and six times World Championship finalist as he played pool against customers.

The premises have recently been taken over by Brendan Morgan, pictured above with Mr White.

Mr Morgan said the snooker star is a long-time friend and was described the evening as “fantastic.”

“It was a major success”, he said.

Mr Morgan, who has been renovating the premises since taking over in December, is planning to bring more big sporting names to the town over the coming months.
