Jamie aiming to go ‘potty’ in Portugal

JAMIE Gardiner travels to Portugal today (Thursday) intent on making his mark at the European Snooker Championships.

The Dunamanagh man will compete in both the under-18 and under-21 events and he is hopeful that he can mount a serious title challenge in at least one of them.

Having competed in a previous edition of the underage European’s in Bulgaria several years ago,
the 18-year-old hopes to be able to draw on that experience over the next week.


“I can’t wait! I’ll probably have a few matches a day, but that’s what I’m going over there for, to be tested,” he said.

“I was in Sofia a few years ago and hopefully that experience will help me.
“I want to win it this time, but I’d be happy with a deep run and if I find myself around the quarter-finals then I can realistically look at trying to win it.”
