Keogan chasing World Championship dream

9 April 2018

Doncaster snooker professional Chris Keogan will again chase his dream of a place at the pinnacle of the sport after the draw for the 2018 Betfred World Championship.

Chris will take on Jack Lisowski as qualifying starts on Wednesday, with a place at the Crucible at stake.

He said: “I’m looking forward to it, playing in the World Championship at the Crucible has been my dream since I was a kid.

“I have an opportunity now, so hopefully I can take it. I have taken part twice before, once in the old system then last season. Going to the Crucible as a fan was one of the main reasons I got into snooker, the way Sheffield comes alive for the tournament is incredible - like Wimbledon in tennis.”

Chris is coming to the end of his second year as part of the Club Doncaster family, a partnership which coincided with him earning his place on the professional tour.

He added: “It has been good, we’ve moved on a bit from the first year and I’ve done more things in the family area on Rovers matchdays.

“It has been great to spend time in Donny Dog’s Kennel with the mini snooker table. A lot of my time in snooker is quite serious, so it is nice to do things which is a bit more fun - we’ve had fans playing snooker against Rovers players which is great.”

Silver Memberships are still on sale for the 2018-19 season and to cope with demand the opening hours have been extended till 7PM so fans can still secure their spot for the new season.

The 2018/19 Season Memberships are priced from £139 (18-21), £199 (22-24), £219 (senior), £299 (adult).
