"SUNNY" HAS GOT HIS WORLD CHAMPION'S HAT ON! CHAMBERS REVELLING IN HIS SENIORS MOMENT

Steve Chambers lived upto his nickname after becoming WEPF Seniors World 8-Ball Pool champion for the first time.

Chambers was ‘Sunny’ by name and nature after defeating good pal, Shaun Eaton-Lees 8-6 at Blackpool’s Imperial Hotel.

And you suspect it will be some time before the grin is removed from the Leicestershire veteran’s face.

“I can’t believe it,” said the 53-year-old postman after ensuring his red letter day.

“It’s the best I have played since I won the Euros last year,” added the Coalville mail man.

“I am elated. It’s the best feeling ever to win a world title. I never thought I would do it before I retired but now I can carry on.”

Chambers, who knocked out defending champion, Keith Brewer 6-1 in the last 16, came from 6-4 down to deny his Walsall mate the title.

“If I hadn’t have clipped the black in the middle it would have gone 7-4 and I think Shaun would have won it,” he admitted.

“We are good mates and Shaun is a hard player to beat. We have known each other for 30 years and he deserves to get to another world final because he is such a good player.

“But I did think l I had a chance before I came to Blackpool. I did a lot of practice for three or four weeks before the tournament.

“But when I got here I was stabbing and playing scratchily However, I gradually worked my way into the tournament, keeping my head down and controlling my cue action.

“Luckily they had a table at my hotel. I only found it on the morning of the final so had a few knocks on there.

“I practiced keeping my head down on the cue and it worked.”

Ends…
