West Acre billiards player Jack Easter has been crowned the national under-19 champion after success in the National Junior Billiards finals.

The event was hosted by King's Lynn Malting's Q Club, with Easter adding the U19s title to the U16s title he won back in 2014.

The teen won his two qualifying games and then defeated James Freestone (Narborough) in the semi-finals 181-102 to reach the final. Freestone himself had done very well to reach this stage after a year's lay-off from the sport.

In the other half of the draw Nathan Boughen did very well to reach the final, after a very close win over Rochy Woods in the semi-finals 113-108.

However in the final Easter's class was apparent from the start, scoring over 100 points in his first six visits to the table, and thus gaining a lead he carried to the game's conclusion which he won 238-120.

Rochy Woods, from Tittleshall, retained the National Girls Championship for the third successive year by defeating another West Acre Academy player, 11-year-old Hannah Greeno from Narborough, 175-56 in the final.
