King's Lynn held the latest English Junior Billiards Tour event on Sunday when the Maltings Q Club hosted the fifth event of the season - with West Acre's Bruce Welham competing.

The event was very well attended by local players, however two Teesiders, Jon Buglass and Michael Williams reached the final of the event with Buglass (Hartlepool) winning the 60-minute final 262-249.

West Acre's Bruce Welham maintained his No 2 ranking nationally when losing to Buglass 279-174 in the semi-finals, while Michael Crisp of Narborough did very well to reach the semis also, where he lost to Williams 263(49)-184.

Earlier Michael had defeated Finlay Laing (Newmarket) 236-222 in the quarter-finals, this being a very good win as Laing had won the last event of the series in Derby in December.
