  • Dunstable on Mother's Day welcomes the world

    DUNSTABLE Snooker Club will be filled on Mother’s Day with most of the world’s top women players.

    A 14-strong international cast will be competing in the Connie Gough Memorial.

    Female cueists from Hong Kong, Latvia and Lithuania are jetting in to join the best UK-based players for the fifth ranking event on the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association (WLBSA) circuit.

    It’s a tournament that world number one Maria Catalano holds dear to her heart. Ronnie O’Sullivan’s cousin has won the title for the past two years. In fact, half of her ten WLBSA ranking titles have been Connie Goughs.

    Nine-time world champion Reanne Evans, who has slipped to third in the rankings, is sure to start at favourite.

    But Ng On Yee, one of a quartet of Hong Kong girls, has climbed to second place after claiming two titles this season and will be keen for a third before the Eden Resources World Championships in Leeds next month.

    Making her WLBSA debut will be 14-year-old Diana Tracevic, an exciting prospect from Lithuania.

    Under-21 and Seniors (40+) events will also he held on the day along with a Plate competition for those not reaching the semi-finals.

    The draw takes place at 9.30am with play starting at 10am.
