Congratulations Cliff Thorburn
Assetrereum World Seniors Masters 2018 Champion
Cliff beat Jonathan Bagley by 2-0 in the Final to lift the John Spencer Trophy … the same John Spencer who had beaten him in the first ever World Final at the Crucible, 41 years ago!
Here is an excerpt with Cliff’s quotes … to say that it meant a lot is a huge understatement!
The 1980 world champion said: “It’s very meaningful for me being back here at the Crucible. Jonathan actually beat me the last few times but I just felt good being here – there are lots of good memories here.”
“I’m 70 now and I get a little nervy but I’m just so proud to win the first John Spencer Trophy. John helped me to turn pro and he was a great friend for all of my life, he was a classy individual.”
And here are all the images I took at the event:
