London County youth, Frank Costello, stunned the Junior Pool Championship in Blackpool by reaching the Final at his first attempt, aged 14! Frank had played very well to win the National Junior Qualifier at Great Yarmouth in May, but few anticipated he would do so well on his first visit to Blackpool.

After coming through the early rounds with relative ease, Frank defeated Danny Collinge and Ashley Radford, both England Internationals, with a bit to spare in the Quarters and Semi's respectively, blending tactical know-how beyond his years with first rate potting, to win 7 v 4 in both matches.

Unfortunately Frank ran out of steam a little in the Final, against Paul McGuire (England),but make no mistake, this was an excellent effort and surely marks Frank out as a potential future Champion!
