UK youngster to get main tour card

EBSA European Championships 2019Logo

The EBSA Under 21 Championships concludes today and the semi-final line up is an all UK affair. Three of them are 17 and one just 16.

Dylan Emery (17) of Wales will face Ross Bulman (17) of Ireland with the other semi-final being between Jackson Page (17) of Wales and Aaron Hill (16) of Ireland.

Aaron is fresh from his triumph at the Under 18s event on Tuesday where he overcame Dylan Emery to take the title. That competition, however, does not earn a main tour card for the winner. So today’s final could even be a repeat of that final.

Jackson Page, who even at just 17 had plenty of main tour experience due to just missing out on a spot by right at Q School. He’s certainly hoping that he won’t have to return to Q School this time! Page, the pre-tournament favourite of many, ended England’s hopes by defeating Hamim Hussain in the quarter-finals.

Today’s final is due to start at 1pm UK time and hopefully will be on the live stream.

You can follow the event at EBSA’s web site where you can also follow the Men’s event which starts tomorrow and also carries a main tour card for the winner. Last years event was won by England’s Harvey Chandler.
