Copnor Cuestars pocketed the title of young team of the year, after showing age is no barrier on the green baize.

The young potters stepped up to test their abilities against the adults in the Portsmouth Snooker League and served up a third-place finish in their debut season.

Coach Pascal Richard said: ‘We’re really proud and surprised to win.

‘It’s great for a snooker team to be recognised.

‘They are good enough to play against the adults and they are improving all the time.’

The winners also expressed their thanks to Michelle Davies and Warren Cole, the owners at Copnor Snooker Club for their ongoing support.

And the Portsmouth Snooker League committee also deserve credit for lowering the minimum age from 12 to nine, to let the talented youngsters thrive.

Queens Inclosure Primary School’s football team netted the runner-up award after their victory at The News Super Sixes. The mixed side lifted the trophy in style after winning all of their games without conceding a single goal.
