European Championships get underway with U-16 category

The first day of the European Snooker Championship, which is being held in Malta, was held on Monday.

The first competition was the Under 16 where the youngest Maltese players also started their adventure during this international event.

Although they were not among those who went through the knock out phase one should still be positive with their performances since the main objective is that these children and youths are given the chance of a new experience in an international competition of a major scale.

In fact, from a list of 60 players who took part in this category, late on Monday, the games closed with the last 16 games so that on Tuesday the quarter-finals and semi-finals will take place while the final will be played on Wednesday at 6 pm

The last eight who qualified for the quarter-finals are Bulcsú Révész (Hungary), Andrejs Pripjoks (Latvia), Jack Borwick (Scotland), Ayaan Iqbal (Scotland), Maksim Kostov (Bulgaria), Artem Surzhykov (Ukraine), O`Shay Scott (England) and Matvei Lagodzinschii (Ukraine).

The two Scottish players will meet against each other in Tuesday’s quarter-finals.

On Tuesday, we will have the first games of the Under-18 category where in the Maltese contingent Luke Pace will join Jamie Buhagiar, Adam Pace and Xavier Rizzo who were already in action on Monday.

The group games in this category are over two days and a total of 79 players will take part including last year’s Under-16 winner Artemijs Žižins, of Latvia.
