World Seniors Snooker: David Lilley claims title with win over Jimmy White

David Lilley denied Jimmy White a third consecutive World Seniors title after a 5-3 win in the final in Sheffield.

He earned his competitive debut at the Crucible after coming through the initial Q-School qualifying in Reading earlier this year.

Lilley built up a 3-0 lead and although White levelled it at 3-3, Lilley pulled away again for victory.

“I’m a bit speechless, I didn’t think I’d get this emotional,” he said.

“Jimmy is my hero – he’s everyone’s hero. I really don’t know what to say; I’m just so happy.”
