WINKLEBURY potting wizard Mickey Joyce, winner of the Cuestars South of England Tour, was knocked out in the semi-finals of the play-offs at Swindon by Westbury’s Callum Browne.

To reach the final four, the 11-year-old beat Thomas Holton (Woking SC) 2-0 and then Bradley Leishman (Stoke SC Gosport) 2-1.

England internationals Ben Harrison and Billy Castle were impressed with the current crop of Cuestars champions.

The former Cuestars juniors, dubbed the Powerpot Men, presented the trophies and played exhibition frames against prize winners during finals day at Jesters Snooker Hall, Swindon.

Harrison, fresh from Q School, picked out Silver Tour rankings winner Mickey Joyce and said “He’s only 11 and is very good. I was impressed with him.”

Castle added: “There’s some good players, especially Mickey Joyce.”

Harrison and Castle, who are now both knocking on the door of the professional circuit, said they “enjoyed” their second year as special guests.
