Snooker: Vallance has tough task

Corstorphine's Ross Vallance will have his work cut out if he is to become the East of Scotland Snooker Champion for the second time.

The 22-year-old faces defending champion Eden Sharav, 18, of Alloa in tonight's best-of-nine frames final at Edinburgh's Corn Exchange (7pm)..

The tournament, which started with 68 players and is the oldest snooker championship still running in Scotland, was first played in 1928 and tournament organiser Kenny Baird believes that this year has been one of the strongest fields he has ever seen since becoming involved in the running of the event 20 years ago.

He said: "The fact that all four quarter-finals went to a deciding frame was an indication of the depth of player quality in this year's event. However, all credit has to go to Eden and Ross for making it through to the final. It is a really tough one to call."
