Ex-world champ John Parrott takes on prize winners in Cumbria
Last updated at 12:01, Friday, 03 May 2013
Former World Snooker Champion John Parrott is to visit Workington.
Parrott, 48, was a team captain on the BBC quiz show A Question of Sport from 1996 to 2002.
He will be at the Workington Working Men’s Club, Station Road, on Friday, May 17, for The Window Outlet Cockermouth & District Snooker League 2012/2013 presentation night.
He will go head-to-head against competition winners from the snooker league, give an after-dinner speech and present this season’s trophies.
Kevin Basnett, 41, league chairman, said: “It is absolutely brilliant having him come to Workington.
“He is a massive personality and not just associated with snooker.”
Parrott, who was given an MBE in 1996, is now a studio expert on snooker for the BBC.
The league’s annual presentation night has previously attracted stars including Ken Doherty, Matthew Stevens and Jimmy White.
A raffle at the event will raise money for the Charlie Bear Cancer Appeal, in memory of former Senhouse Street Club snooker player John Reynolds, who died from cancer last year.
Entry is free and refreshments will be available. The event will start at 7.30pm.
