Paul Hunter R.I.P.
I was terribly upset to hear of the tragic
death of Paul Hunter last week.
A great player and a great guy he will be sadly missed by everyone involved in snooker
especially the players.
He won three Masters titles plus three other
He was in his prime with a great career ahead of him.
Off the table he was not long married to Lynsey
only last January became a father to Evie Rose.
One can only imagine how devastated his wife, parents and family are.
I hope it is some small consolation to them
to know how popular he was
and how badly missed he will be.
A new scholarship, named after Paul, will
be awarded annually to a gifted young player
and is considered a most fitting tribute to the popular Yorkshireman.
Gone but Never Forgotten.
