A Ringing Endorsement from Top Snooker Star…
THREE TIMES WORLD CHAMPION MARK WILLIAMS rarely raves about new talent, but when it comes along, he’s one of the first of the top players to provide a ringing endorsement of fresh talent.
In one of his latest tweets, he praises the talent of the young teenage snooker sensation from Wales, Liam Davies, who a couple of weeks ago won the European Under 18’s event – but didn’t receive a tour card.
He was also the youngest player at 15 to win a match at the 2022 BetFred World Snooker Championship qualifiers in April.
It seems he is a cut above the rest in his local league.

WELSH OPEN CHAMPION Joe Perry said recently at a Cuestars awards event in the south of England, that youngsters should not get disheartened by not getting on tour through Q-School, but then suggested that another way to get more fresh talent on tour was to have a Q-School that was completely void of pros and ex-pros – so that they get the experience of going on tour.
He added; “They might not be ready, they’ll get on, they’ll get beat for two years but – in the long run – it will do them good.”
