English Under-16 Champion Peter
Gamblin has his sights set on this
year’s title.

Born and raised in Lincoln, Peter Gamblin’s early influence came from watching top snooker star Ronnie
O’Sullivan in action, and his free-potting style certainly
reflects that inspiration. He started playing at the George
Fisher Social Club were his father is a member, quickly
progressing to competitive action in the 6th division of the
Lincoln League. Here he was spotted by Roger Clark who
recognised his potential as a billiard player and under
Roger’s guidance he managed to secure the English under-
16 Billiards Championship last year. As he continues to
improve his billiards skills to compliment his natural potting
ability, he will be difficult to beat in this year’s championship
and currently looks favourite to retain the title.

A regular competitor in the
Junior Ranking series, he
also hones his skills by
playing in three local
leagues, taking part in both
billiards and snooker
competitions. Up to now his
high break is an impressive
88 and he has also had a run
of 86 made by top-of-the-
table play. His ambition is to
become a regular 100+ break
player, which must surely
become reality in the not too
distant future.
