Snooker may just have a new rising star in the books – and believe it or not his name is Ronnie Sullivan.
The 14-year-old youngster, whose name almost resembles five-times world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan, has made a big impression on the snooker circuit this weekend by reaching the English Association of Snooker and Billiards (EASB) Under 14 Championship final.
The talented junior earned rave reviews for his performance over the weekend. Snooker professional Oliver Lines praised him on Facebook to say how well he played.
The youngster is from Coulsdon, a town situated south of London, and plays at his local snooker club the Couldson Frames Sports Bar who tweeted: “Ronnie Sullivan put in a great performance today at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds making it to the final in the English Under 14’s snooker competition!
“Congratulations Ronnie and best of luck in the final from all of us at Frames
Sullivan will play fellow talented youngster from Blackpool Paul Deaville in the grand final of the Under 14 Championship in June at Gloucester’s South West Snooker Academy.
