Miller impresses to take Snooker Handicap Title

Barnsley’s Brett Miller overcame a strong field in the last 16 of the 2019 Yorkshire Snooker Handicap at Pockets Snooker Centre in Rotherham to lift the trophy he previously won in 2003 and 2009.

Miller, playing off -60, defeated Castleford’s Daniel Womersley, also -60, 3-1 in the final, but it was the manner of performance throughout the day that impressed most, not dropping a single frame in making the showpiece finale after playing some of the county’s finest talent.

Miller had beaten Gareth Green, Tony Tasker and Nathan Hague in the group stages, all by a 3-0 score line, after which another 3-0 win over last year’s runner up David Portman got him to the semi-finals, where he came up against Green once again, triumphing once more by 3 frames to nil.

Womersley came through his group of Richard Binns, Rob Skidmore and Paul Swallow, only dropping 2 frames throughout this process, and knocked out Kurtis Norman 3-1 in the Quarter Finals. A tight 3-2 victory over Lee Rigby in the semi-finals set up his first final appearance since 2011 and was looking to add to the title he won in 2010, but Miller was in excellent form and was fully deserving of the tournament victory.
