King's Lynn youngster on target for Q School event after achieving first-ever 147
William Chambers, 10, won the first prize in the Narbeck Boys Billiards League 147 Snooker challenge, an event set up for the seven players in the Boys’ Billiards League coaching groups with their own tables at home.
Each player was set a target, and the first player to make or exceed this target would win the prize .
Chambers, pictured above, was set a target of eight reds and eight blacks, which he achieved to win the sponsored prize of £50.
The West Acre Billiards Club player is a prodigious talent and is expected make his first century break very soon.
Two days later, current Eastern Counties Junior Billiards and Snooker Champion Alec Chalmers, of Great Bircham, exceeded all expectations when achieving his first maximum break of 147 when attempting the challenge.
Chalmers, 16, is the first Boys Billiards League player to achieve this feat since the league was formed in 1997, and is on course to shatter all league records.
It is hoped that Chalmers, pictured below, will compete in this May’s Q School event where he will attempt to gain professional status on World Snooker’s main Tour.
