Chris Roebuck lifted the first piece of silverware of the season – but he relied on a nice run of the balls to claim the prize.

He won a dramatic Brian Sellens Cup final 3-2 against Ade Fox.

Stubbington’s Fox took a 1-0 lead but Roebuck won two frames on the bounce.

The match went to a decider as Fox took the fourth to make it 2-2.

Then the drama really started.

By his own admission, Roebuck got plenty of run throughout the match

It was particularly evident in the final frame as the Stoke Snooker Club ace fluked the blue.

He wasn’t going to spurn the opportunity fortune gave him as he slotted home the pink to seal the win at Mayfair Snooker Club.
