Snooker ace lines up Stratford date
FORMER world snooker champion Ken Doherty will be in Stratford this week showing off his potting skills and telling stories from more than three decades in the sport.
The ‘Darling of Dublin’ will be at Stratford Sports Club, Swans Nest Lane, on Thursday, 25th May, for what organisers promise will be a fun-packed evening with an entertainer both on and off the table.
Irishman Doherty won the world crown in 1997, beating Stephen Hendry in the final, and went close the following year when he was edged out by John Higgins. He also lost out in the 2003 final when beaten by Mark Williams.
He turned professional in 1990 and now combines playing with his TV work for BBC and Eurosport.
Tickets for the event, which starts at 7.30pm, cost £45 (£35 for members) to include a buffet and more details are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01789 296629.
