Andy added to his accolade of international titles, the three-times world champion gaining his second European title. In the final at the SPA Theatre, Bridlington, Andy played England A teammate Jack Whelan taking the title with a 6-3 win in frames.

He said: “This has to go up there with one of the best wins for me, the field was full of great players with the likes of Ronan Mcarthy, Craig Marsh, Pat Holtz, John Chambers and many more international stars. I’m over the moon to be crowned European champion for the second time.”

Andy also played for the England A team who were also crowned European team champions beating Wales 13-9 in the final with Andy clinching the final winning frame.

Scottish International and former World and European champion Shona captained the Scottish ladies A team who qualified for the team semi finals, beating England 13-11 with Shona winning the much needed 13th frame. Scotland dominated the final against Wales winning 13-3.

Shona said that she is so proud to be captain of what is the most successful ladies team in the history of pool.
