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 ranking events.
He was in his prime with a great career ahead of him.

Off the table he was not long married to Lynsey and
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.
