Brian Cox won the Boston and District Snooker title for the seventh time.

He beating Tom Hill 5-0 in the final at Boston Snooker Centre.

Tom has showed improvements as a player by reaching his first final, and he has many more years to try to win it.

However, Brian’s experience - in his eighth final - was to his advantage this time.

The small pockets of table three made the task tougher for both players and the scoreline didn’t do justice to Tom as three frames in the match were on the pink and black.

The key frame was the fourth, when Brian was 43 behind and made a pressure clearance of 47 to pinch it on the black.

Then breaks of 45 and 58 in the final frame wrapped up the match.

Brian also won the highest break in the Boston Super League with a 105, as well as lifting the league and cup with his BSC 1 team.

Derek Hill - Tom’s father and a mentor to Brian in his younger years - presented the trophies.

Brian, who is also a snooker coach, is looking to run a junior snooker league throughout the summer holidays for youngsters aged 16 and under who are interested in competitions, medals and coaching tips.
