West Acre’s Phillip Welham lost in the final of this year’s Championship to Preston’s Robert Marshall 521 (110, 87, 80, 56)-306 (56, 79) which was hosted by Derby’s Cueball Club.

Marshall, an ex-top 30 snooker professional, started very well in the 90 minute final and built up a 350-point lead, before the West Acre man closed the deficit to just under 200 points at the end of the game.
