9-year Old Makes a 50 Break

9 year old Shane Castle knocked in an amazing 61 break against Jason Hildyard at the Chandlers Ford U-21 Roll Up snooker event.

This is Hampshire reports that: Castle started on full-sized tables less than two years ago but has quickly established himself as one of the country's top players in his age group.

On his debut at the Pontin's Prestatyn Star of the Future' tournament in February, he reached the under-12 final.

And, on his ninth birthday in January, he signed a three-year sponsorship deal with Insurance Brokers Oliver and Sanders.

Coach Dave Mumford has been working with Castle for more than a year.
"Breaks are one measure of progress," he said. "The other is how he performs in tournaments which, to me, is more important.

"The progress he has made is phenomenal; he must not lose sight of that. But also he needs to be more focused in his match-play.

"A 61 in 15 months, nine-years-old, how much more progress do you want? It's scary."

We will be keeping an eye for this youngster as he progresses
