Jersey’s Aaron Canavan is the Second 900 Victor…

FORMER WORLD SENIORS CHAMPION Aaron Canavan came through to claim the second spot for the Grand Finals of the exciting new Snooker Legends 900 amateur event on Wednesday. 

The new event which has been going down a storm with the amateurs has been hailed by some as an experience they will never forget as Canavan follows Andrew Norman into the Grand Finals in November.

Although Emma Parker didn’t make it over the three days, the talented World Women’s Tour player managed the final on Monday against Daniel Wells – and made an impressive start to the second week with some fantastic clearances in individual frames.
