Bradford Snooker Handicap semi-finals this weekend

Seven-times Bradford billiards champion Mark Hirst helped Yorkshire to the county title

THE semi-finals of the Bradford Snooker Handicap take place on Saturday at Eccleshill Victoria Conservative Club (8pm).

Chris Simmonds (Salthorn) takes on Chris Davies (Tong Libs), while Undercliffe Cricket Club’s Sonny Sandhu plays S Ratcliffe (East Ward). Spectators are welcome.

The Hey’s Trophy is set to get underway next month, with first-round matches taking place on Thursdays December 14 and 21.

Tournament director Eddie Ratcliffe will be sending out full details, with handicaps, over the next week or so.

Seven-times Bradford billiards champion Mark Hirst was part of a successful Yorkshire side that won the Inter-Counties Billiards title in Derby recently.

Hirst, along with multi-Grand masters champion Steve Crosland from Harrogate and Huddersfield’s Matthew Peaker, came through a strong field and defeated Lincolnshire in the final.

Bradford No 2 shared the spoils with a 3-3 draw at Skipton in Division Two of the Yorkshire Inter-District Snooker League, a superb break of 92 being the highlight from Peter Hamilton.

Meanwhile, Bradford No 1 return to action this weekend in Division One when they entertain Sheffield No 2 at Undercliffe Cricket Club on Sunday (7.30).
