Snooker Championship League - near to finish line

05:49:00 Ramona Dragomir 0 Comments

At the beginning of this year the Championship League started its course, giving all Top 16 players, the opportunity to book themselves a secure place in these year’s Premier League of Snooker. Seven groups were put together as the players went through a round-robin stage, each group having its own winner. In the end all seven winners will face the ultimate test, another round-robin round that will pick its champion - the one who gets a place into the main event.

Until now six groups founded their winners, during 21-22 of March Group 7 matches taking place, and during 23-24 of March the Winners` Group matches kicking off. With Mark Selby, Mark Williams, Shaun Murphy, Ali Carter, Ryan Day and Mark Allen through to the final stage we only need one more name to have the full line-up ready to go.
So, with no more introductions here’s today schedule for Group 7:

Table 1 (all times are approximate)
10.30am Stephen Lee v. Marco Fu
11.45am Martin Gould v. Andrew Higginson
Not before 1.30pm Matthew Stevens v. Mark King
