A POOL player from Sutton has ended his 15 year wait for a world title by claiming glory in the World Pool Eight-Ball Championship last week.
Phil Harrison overcame a last minute case of the 'twitches' to beat Mick Hill 11-7 and claim his first World Championship title after an engrossing final showdown.
The win has been over a decade in the making for the Sutton man and comes after years of near misses that have seen fall agonisingly short in four semi-finals and four quarter finals,
"I'm definitely pleased to have won it after so many years spent trying to get there, I did have a case of the twitches in the final and I thought I might throw it away again but I managed to hold it together.
