Ronnie and Jimmy in Guidford – 24 September 2015

Ronnie and Jimmy White played a Snooker Legends exhibition match yesterday in Guidford. The event was sponsored by Dafabet.

Ronnie very much looked forward to it as, earlier on the day, he tweeted:

Off to Guildford soon. Show at g live tonight with jimmy. Gonna smash it. Get down there

Before the exhibition itself, Ronnie took some time to coach local VIP players:

This morning Ronnie tweeted:

Enjoyed coaching meet & greet, good lads and hope they enjoyed it too. Gonna do them at the belfast and Preston shows if anyone’s up for it

Jimmy won the exhibition match itself by 5-4 … on the black ball shoot-out.

Here are Jason Francis “report” tweets as the match went on.

  • Ronnie starts with a 123 clearance! 1-0
  • Ronnie with 64, 2-0
  • Jimmy clears with 40 and its 2-1. He is in the balls in frame 4 too
  • 2-2 at the interval
  • Jimmy goes 3-2 up!
  • Ronnie with 90 and its 3-3
  • Jimmy plays vintage stuff! 4-3 up
  • Ronnie made it 4-4 so it’s black ball shootout time!
  • Ronnie catches the black thick and Jimmy SCREAMS in a long black to win @Dafabet cup 5-4
  • Going by the fans tweets afterwards, it was, once again, a very entertaining night, that concluded with all Legends, Ronnie, Jimmy, Michaela Tabb and host John Virgo signing autographs for the fans.

    Next stop Newbury tonight but not before some relaxing walk in beautiful Guidford
