Vic Juniors Under 15 & 18
Alan Croft  May 26, 2014, 05:09:46 PM

Victorian Under 15 and under 18 championships were played at Cheltenham - Sunday 25/05/2014
 
Jake Thompson won both the under 15 and under 18 competition
Marc Fridman was runner up in both divisions.
 
Costa Zygorodimos  finished third in the Under 18 competition
 
All games were played in good spirit and the players called their own fouls, which was refreshing from such young players. Matches were very close and the fourth frame in the U18 final finished 62 all and was decided by a black respot. All players played high quality snooker and all proved to be very competent and with continuing coaching, practice and application will become very good players. Thanks to Tony Fridman and John Loughran for their assistance.
