Josh Boileau from the Newbridge CYMS reached the EBSA European Semi Finals in the Under 21 Snooker Championship here in Wroclaw Poland. Josh beat Andres Petrov from Estonia last night 5 frames to 2 in a great match.
Josh won the first three frames, but Petrov won the next two only to see the Newbridge man win the next two and qualify for the semi finals on Saturday morning against Joe O Connor (England).
The Semi final will be played on Saturday morning ar 9am Irish time and the full match will be streamed and Josh is hoping to reach the final again and this time to win the title.
The National Coach PJ Nolan said he was delighted with his safety game last night. Josh started great and potted the vital balls to win. Having two RIBSA players in the Semi Final this week is incredible.
Josh is very focused and will give it 100% on Saturday morning. The players would like to thank everyone for their support from back home in Ireland.
