Sporting legends head for Weston

A GROUP of sporting legends will be rolling back the years during a one-off Weston exhibition event in May.

Snooker stars Jimmy White, Dennis Taylor, John Virgo, Cliff Thorburn and John Parrott were among the sport’s biggest names back in the 1980s and 1990s.

Three of them – Taylor, Thorburn and Parrott - bagged world titles during the sport’s heyday, while White has been arguably the game’s most popular ever player.

Virgo earned cult status during his stint on quiz show Big Break, and will be compering the event and entertaining crowds with his trick shot repertoire.

The group will be locking horns in a Snooker Legends competition at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre on May 17.
