Emery Wins U21 European Snooker Championship

Congratulations to Dylan Emery from Trecenydd Snooker who has won the 2021 under 21 European Snooker Championship in Portugal, and in the process earned himself a two-year professional tour card. Dylan beat number 1 seed Julien Leclercq from Belgium in the final 5 frames to 2, clinching the title with a break of 75. After winning a close quarter-final 4-3 against fellow Welshman Liam Davies, Dylan would then beat Antoni Kowalski of Poland 4-0 to advance to the final. Dylan compiled sixteen breaks over 50 during the course of the tournament including a 103 in the quarter-final. Emery joins an impressive list of previous champions including Mark Allen, Ben Woollaston and Luca Brecel; he becomes the sixth Welshman to win the event joining Ian Preece, Jamie Jones, Michael White, Jak Jones and Jackson Page. Emery is the latest in a long list of Cardiff and District Snooker Association members that have turned pro, and his first match as a member of the pro tour will likely be in the third quarter of 2022. All the best Dylan!
