A BRADFORD snooker player will finally fulfil a lifelong dream when he makes his first appearance at the sport’s most prestigious arena.

Laisterdyke’s Wayne Cooper has replaced Tony Drago, who was advised by a doctor to stay in Malta, in this year’s ROKiT World Seniors Championships, held at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre.

Cooper is a renowned name on the West Yorkshire snooker scene and is a record 10-time Bradford champion.
