Willie Thorne, who recently had an eye surgery in the hope to be able to play snooker at a high level again is set to return to Goffs for the 2019 Irish Masters.
Willie said “What a thrill to be going back to Goffs. I got to the final in 85 and 86 losing to Jimmy and Davis. great memories & one of the best venues. I remember Ken Doherty selling programmes as a young boy as well!!”
Willie could possibly face Jimmy in the final again … or Ken, who, surely won’t be selling programs this time!
