Ben Hancorn etched his name in history as the winner of the 100th edition English Amateur Snooker Championship – the sport’s longest-running competition.
Played in front of an enthusiastic audience at the Centaur Arena in Cheltenham – home to the ongoing Coral World Grand Prix – Bristol-based Hancorn overcame Rory McLeod 5-3 in the final to lift the iconic trophy and claim the prestigious title that was first contested in 1916.
Hancorn, age 37, joins the illustrious roll of honor that includes greats of the sport such as John Pulman, Ray Reardon, John Spencer, Terry Griffiths, Jimmy White, and Stuart Bingham.
Hancorn said: “To be the 100th champion is great, I can’t believe it, it’s fantastic. It’s one of those occasions I’ll never forget.”
The EPSB would like to thank everyone who has been involved with this year’s championship.
