A teenage pool player from the edge of the Fens won her first trophy after competing in the Ultimate Pool Tour in Blackpool.

Chloe Payne started playing pool at the age of six, and snooker when she was 16. Now, the 19-year-old is currently on the women's snooker tour. 

After losing 5-4 in the last game of the group to qualify for the main competition, this put her into the plate.

She won her first match 4-0 then 4-1 4-0 4-0 which got her into the final. She then won that 5-0.

Ranked 42nd in the world, Chloe has been receiving coaching from Chatteris-based professional champion Joe Perry. 

Her dad, Mark, said: "She needs that next step now".

"She has a good future ahead of her. Hopefully in a couple of years she'll be on TV."

Chloe also narrowly missed out on winning the semi-finals of the World Pool Championship  in February.

"She was very close but there's always another year," said Mark.

The family thanked Brian Thompson Windows in Holbeach and Darren McCarthy at Legends Pool and Sports Bar in town for their sponsorship this year. 

Mark said their support "helps massively" and described Legends as "a great club with lovely pool and snooker tables, darts and a good atmosphere".
