PREMIER League Snooker will visit two South West locations this November, bringing world class players Ronnie O'Sullivan and John Higgins to the region.

The exclusive league, televised live on Sky Sports, will visit the Riverside Leisure Centre, Exeter, on November 5 and Hutton Moor Leisure Centre, Weston, on November 12.

One player keen to make an impression is 20-year-old Judd Trump. Born and raised in Whitchurch, Bristol, Trump has been a member at Keynsham Snooker Centre since he was seven.

He commented: "To qualify for the Matchroom Premier League Snooker is my biggest achievement to date. I'm looking forward to the challenge of competing against the world's biggest players and hope for a good local crowd of supporters at Hutton Moor."
