It looks like there is no ‘close season’ at all with the EASB Finals Weekend and the first pro event of the new season being held at the same time.

Unfortunately for Ashley Carty, it means that he’s had to choose between playing in the Riga Masters in Latvia and the English Amateur Championship in Gloucester. He’s chosen Latvia and in doing so has given a walkover for David Lilley who will now face the winner of Andrew Norman and Billy Castle for the title.As well as the English Amateur, there are many more EASB titles to be won over the weekend. There is the 6 Reds, the under 14, 16, 18 and 21, the under 40, over 55, and the Masters. A busy weekend!
You can follow the action at MySnookerStats and there will be more on the EASB site, Twitter and Facebook.

In Latvia, Ashley will be joined by fellow amateurs Jackson Page and Ben Jones. They earned their places in the qualifying round by virtue of their performances at Q School.

Other events this weekend –

The Northern Snooker Centre will be holding the first of their pro-am series which is in addition to the “big money” LiteTask series which started last Sunday. As a result, this means there will now be two pro-ams per month at the NSC this year.

The second of the £100 a Man series will be held at Frames Snooker Centre and is for amateurs over 38 years young. There is a scoring system to decide on the top 16 to go through to the finals in December.

Sunday sees the start of the Champion of Champions Series at The Towers in Mansfield. From the 6 handicapped events, 16 players will earn the right to play in the finals on December 3.

There are of course the regular weekly events such as the Saturday evening pro-am at Whitley Bay Snooker Centre which attracts an average of 20 entries. It’s really is nice to see the new season, if you like, getting off to such a good start with top quality events across the country.
