Masters finalists Mark Allen and Kyren Wilson team up to make 147

Last month they faced each other in the most important match of their careers to date – but the weekend saw Mark Allen and Kyren Wilson celebrate together after they pulled off a terrific feat.

The pair, both ranked inside the world’s top 16, made a doubles 147 on Saturday when taking part in an exhibition event in County Donegal in Northern Ireland.

It came just weeks after Allen beat Wilson 10-7 to win The Masters – the second of snooker’s Triple Crown events of the season. The defeat reduced Wilson to tears on the night.

Wilson was a late replacement for Shaun Murphy who had to cancel taking part in the exhibition due to a family illness.

After making the 147 which saw Wilson pot the final black, a video shows both him and Allen embracing with a big hug in front of a jubilant crowd who could not believe their eyes.

Tweeting after the triumph, Wilson said on Twitter: “Had a great night last night in Donegal cheers to @robbiecov1 and all the team the crowd was fantastic especially when me and @pistol147 made the 147 now flight home and Sunday dinner with the family.”

Allen also hit a 147 in a different exhibition just 24 hours after his Masters victory when he delighted the crowd with a maximum at Belfast’s Trinity Hall Snooker Club.
