Sixteen years after he last represented his country in the British Isles tournament, Patrick Wallace headed to Leeds on Friday to try to help Northern Ireland achieve something they have never managed in forty years of trying - to win the Home International Snooker Championship.

Back in 1998, Wallace went to Prestatyn in North Wales for the last time but, playing with other guys who also became professionals -Mickey Duffy from Portadown and Castlederg’s Dermot McGlinchey amongst them, the coveted title once more eluded them.

“That’s obviously something we would love to put right, but it’s a tall order against teams with very accomplished and experienced campaigners at this level” explained Wallace, his team-mates at Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds being Jordan Brown, Declan Brennan and Ramy McAllister.
