LADIES’ SNOOKER: Hemel’s Vicky Carter came home with silverware from the UK Championship at Woking Snooker Centre.

After being eliminated from the main competition at the quarter-final stage, Carter bounced back to win the U40 Shield tournament.

She beat Naomi Clare 1-0 in their semi-final clash, before triumphing 2-0 over Suzie Opacic in the final showdown.

Carter had previously beaten Opacic 3-0 in the last-16 stage of the main tournament, before losing by the same scoreline to Maria Catalano.

The UK Championship title eventually went to pre-tournament favourite Reanne Evans, who beat Emma Bonney in the final.

Next up for Carter is the East Anglian Championship in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.
