Cue-master Mr Hill had players enthralled by his skills on the table as he took on the Barrow and District Wednesday Pool League’s top performers and all-comers during their presentation night at the Red River Club.

The Leeds-based 33-year-old was invited to the event by one of the town’s best players, Irish international Denis Horan.

Mr Horan said: “It was a great night, it was presentation night for the Wednesday League.

“Everybody enjoyed it. It was great to have a player of his calibre in our area.

“It is nice for the players to come and see someone of his quality, who can put the cue ball where he wants on the table and show us all the shots.”

During his visit Mr Hill faced the league’s aggregate winner, individual singles winner, and the league’s doubles winners, and he later took on all challengers. Mr Hill enjoyed his time so much that he was still playing until 12.45am.

“The atmosphere was relaxed, he was having a good laugh with the crowd,” added Mr Horan.

“Everybody enjoyed it, there was a good bit of banter.

“He is a thoroughly nice lad and it was a really nice night. We will definitely get him again in a couple of years.”

As well as claiming two world crowns, Mr Hill has been European champion twice, European masters champion and an International Pool Association winner.
