Jonny Clayton yesterday won his first Pro Tour title. The Welshman nicknamed the Ferret capped off a good two days to win the title and the £10,000 top prize.
In turn Clayton became the 15th different winner in 22 Players Championship events this year including 4 for yesterday’s winner Rob Cross and he spoke after winning the title about how much of a confidence booster this could be and hinted at hopefully a World Championship run.
“It’s fantastic,” said Clayton. “I had nerves but I don’t think I was as nervous in the final as I was in the semis because it was just one more step and you’ve got to try and relax in the final and let them go.
“Hopefully this is a step in the right direction. It’s all down to practice and we all aim for the same thing, to be with the best and to try and beat the best.
“The World Championship is around the corner and I wouldn’t mind winning that!”
