Aaron Hill crowned European Under 21 Champion

Cork's Aaron Hill completed an incredible double this week.

The Corkman added the EBSA European U21 Championship to his under 18 crown, defeating Hayden Staniland 5-2 in the final in Portugal.

The result means that Hill has earned a two year World Snooker Tour card, and becomes the first ever play to win the under 18 and under 21 titles in the same year.

Hill raced into a 4-0 lead in the final, however after the break Staniland fought back to reduce the gap to 4-2.

However Hill wasn't phased, taking frame 7 to secure the victory, and earn his place in the history books.
