The Glasgow-based squad of amateur snooker players had earned the right to take on their English counterparts after winning the 2022 Scottish County Championships.

And it was a double celebration for the hosts as the Scotland B team won the Plate against "a very good" England B team with Lindsay Currie clinching that victory with a blue ball shootout.

Michael Collumb, a member of the winning Scotland A team, said: “It was a fantastic weekend of competition, and the boys really deserved the win.

"It shows that the amateur snooker scene is alive and well in Scotland, so long as the facilities are there for players to enjoy.

“The Q Club were brilliant hosts, and they have also been the perfect venue for these players to bond and compete on a weekly basis, which is really the secret behind this success. What is just as pleasing as the success is the diversity of the pool of players we have, of so many different backgrounds and age groups, which underlines that snooker really is a sport for all.

"Hopefully we can use this success and some profile to grow the amateur game further.”
