Assetereum World Seniors Masters 2018 – Cliff Thorburn is your Champion!

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!

David Caulfield made an excellent account of Cliff’s triump on his blog

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:
