Pool ace Gray makes cracking break of 139

Have your say

Pool star Mark Gray, a member of the winning Mosconi Cup team last year and one of the leading players in Europe, showed last week he’s no mean snooker player either.

The Baston-based Bourne Snooker Centre professional recorded the second highest break in the history of the Spalding & District Snooker League when making a 139 clearance.

He was playing for Bourne Snooker Centre A at Spalding Consti against Pete Stokes, who he had to give a 112 start!

The highest break ever recorded in a Spalding League match was also achieved by Gray - a 141 two seasons ago.

Bourne went on to win the match 5-2 to maintain their lead at the top of Division Two.

Gray begins his 2015 pool season in February with a Euro Tour even in Italy and a GB 9-Ball Tour event in Telford. He starts the year ranked number two in Europe and number two in Great Britain.
