Teenage snooker sensation Sonnie O’Sullivan has been crowned Cuestars South of England U21 champion.
After ranking fourth in prestigious Cuestars Gold League, the top 16 players were invited to take part in the championship.
And following an enthralling finale at Jesters Snooker Hall, Swindon, wherein he defeated home favourite Ollie Parsons 3-0 in a high pressure final, the Aylesbury star was on cloud nine.
“I came up against some really good players but managed to produce some of my best snooker when it mattered most,” said 16-year-old O’Sullivan.
O’Sullivan was in a rich vein of form and triumphed in the final, exhibiting potting skills even his namesake Ronnie would be proud of. The youngster has now laid the foundations to compete in the English Association of Snooker & Billiards (EASB) junior tour, a step away from the professional game.
He said: “If you want to get anywhere, you need to go through (the EASB).
“You need to be playing the best players in the country,” stated a confident O’Sullivan.
