Johnathan Bagley has won the last remaining place in the World Seniors Tour Masters event which will be played at the legendary Crucible Theatre, Sheffield on 12th April 2018.
The qualifier was held on the 17th and 18th of February at Upton Park Snooker Centre, London by 'Snooker Legends' founder Jason Francis.
Johnathan beat Barry Pinches 3-2. When it came down to the final black in the 5th frame, Johnathan held his nerve and dropped it in dead weight, sparking a great reaction from those watching the tense final, including some professional players, through live online streaming.
"I had a great final with Barry Pinches at Upton Park which went to the final black. Shame there had to be a loser as Barry is a great player and a true gentleman."
