Doug Mountjoy RIP

Recommended Posts

The death has been announced of the Welsh former snooker player Doug Mountjoy at the age of 78.

A former miner, Doug did not turn pro until he was 34 and became Steve Davis' first World Championship victim when reaching the '81 final. 

In an era when snooker was not the attacking game it is today, Doug is unlikely to be remembered for his flamboyancy around the green baize. 

However, he did win 2 ranking titles and his 49 career centuries helped him to become one of only six men born West of Offa's Dyke to contest the world final. 

Another sporting legend sadly no longer with us.
