Ayers and Thomson Qualify For PowerGlide English Under-14 Championship Final

Home » Ayers and Thomson Qualify For PowerGlide English Under-14 Championship Final

Stage Two of the PowerGlide English Under-14 Championship took place at the weekend with Nicholas Ayers and William Thomson securing their places in the final, which takes place on Sunday 7 April at Tamworth Sports Bar.

Thirty-nine players qualified for the second stage following an action-packed first stage that saw hundreds of young cueists battling it out in local club qualifiers.

The Q Bar in Walsall Wood and and Frames Sports Bar in Coulsdon played host to the stage two action, which was split into North and South qualifiers taking place across the Saturday to decide the two finalists.

North – Q Bar, Walsall Wood

Nicholas Ayers (pictured, left) booked his place in a second consecutive PowerGlide English Under-14 Championship final by coming through a field of 22 hopefuls at the Q Bar in Walsall Wood.

Ayers, who was defeated by Shaun Liu in last year’s title match, stormed through his five man group without dropping a single frame to book his place in the quarter-finals.

Another whitewash victory followed against Ethan Robertson, before the 13-year-old overcame James Bradley in a tense deciding frame to reach the final.

Jacob Corbett would be Ayers opponent in the final. Corbett had defeated Jack Wilding and Faiz Majid in the knockout rounds to reach the final, but proved no match for Ayers who comfortably swept aside his opponent 2-0 to book his place in the championship final.

South – Frames Sports Bar, Coulsdon

Eleven-year old William Thomson lost just a single frame en route to reaching the championship final.

Thomson topped his group, which featured EBSA European Championship qualifier Adam Abbas, without losing a frame to reach the quarter-final stage where he met Elise Scott.

Scott got off to a strong start, taking the opener with a break of 51, but Thomson hit back to take the match in a deciding frame before booking his place in the final with a whitewash win against Oliver Li.

Ten-year-old Rayan El Qmache stood in Thomson’s way in the final, following knockout stage victories over William Hurley and Lennon Savage, but ultimately it was Thomson who took the victory by a 2-0 scoreline.


The best-of-seven frame final will take place on Saturday 7 April at Tamworth Sports Bar. Learn more about the PowerGlide English Under-14 Championship.
