Adam in English final


Billiards ace Adam Stewart has been celebrating after battling his way to the English U16 finals.

Adam, 15, scored the highest break of the day, a total of 60, but he narrowly lost out in the final at Grantham.

A student at Chesterfield’s Brookfield School, Adam faced Sam Betts, from Norfolk, in the final and lost out 250-230.

It was disappointing to lose but a great achievement for Adam to reach the final.

The final showdown has ended an excellent billiard season for the north Derbyshire teenager.

He represented England in an international in Northern Ireland in January and topped the country’s U19s rankings.

Adam plays his billiards at the Whitworth Centre in Darley Dale where he is coached by one of the country’s top amateur players, Jim McCann.

Adam is pictured receiving his runners trophy from Rob Hall the current English senior champion.
