LHC Snooker Update…

LHC Snooker Update…

London and Home Counties Snooker will offer an exciting package at the end of 2024 to the number one ranked player at the end of the events of the season.

The player will receive support, management, and advice to take their snooker to the next level in their journey. 

The LHC said this on their Facebook page: “Summer last year we announced the LHC Snooker tour and LHC Rankings. Well, since then we’ve been compiling the data, we’ve been following alot of amateur snooker events and we have one of the largest Ranking Lists in the game. Just shy of 300 players have competed over the last 9 months, in 28 ranking events. Hosted by; EPSB, Cuestars, Snookerz, Woking Snooker Centre and JP’s Snooker & Pool Club.

Rapper Peter Devlin won the EPSB Open Series SC4 Event at Woking over the weekend.
There are six events left on this list according to the LHC, and they are:
16th EPSB Open Series – Kings Cross
17th Kent County Cup – Rainham
24th EPSB Open Series – East Acton
24th JP’s Monthly Amateur – Harlow
30th EPSB Open Series – Woking
31st Waterlooville Open – Waterlooville
Devlin beat Luke Pinches, the son of Barry Pinches, in the final, 3 – 0 at Woking.

He said on his Facebook: “Big shout out to English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards for the Open Series once again. Such great little tournaments to fill the calendar up and give us some match practice.

Managed to win the Kings Cross event last week and the Woking event yesterday. Shout out to Terry Teeman at snookerz.co.uk for running it.

STEVEN HALLWORTH SCOOPED the 103rd English Amateur Championship at Landywood Snooker Club…

Hallworth joins a list of illustrious players who have gone on to turn into top professionals and have lifted the oldest title in snooker since 1916 before going on to lift ranking titles and World professional titles.

These include the likes of Jimmy White, Jack Lisowski, Joe O’Connor, Terry Griffiths, et al. The seven-time World Champion Ronnie O’Sullivan is the only player on the list NOT to have won the EAC, and was runner-up!


SnookerZone’s Chris Gaynor saw Joe O’Connor lift the title back in 2018 at the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester and wrote a report for Blasting News back then before SnookerZone came into operation.

Devlin added on his win at Woking: “No trophies on offer, so as tradition, I take home an item of homeware from the club as a trophy. Got a new fire extinguisher, mop and bucket 😂
Congratulations to EVERYONE who competed in ALL events at the weekend.


KEN DOHERTY SCOOPED the Snooker Legends 900 Seniors event at Goffs, which was televised on Channel Five for the second time since last year’s successful trip at Epsom.


Doherty defeated his Legend pal Jimmy White in the final 2 – 1 with breaks of 71, and 48. White won the first frame with a 77, but it was all Doherty after that.
The Whirlwind managed a 96 in his first-round match, missing out on a ton against Tony Knowles.
Doherty, the 1997 World Champion, told Phil Seymour after with a tear in his eye: “It’s magical.”
“To have played here against Jimmy White, one of my heroes…”
White added: “May there be many more tournaments here.”
