Star In The Making

 Luke Brecal & Jimmy White

Luca Brecel became the youngest ever winner of the European Championship by beating Roy Stolk 7-4 in the final in Bucharest.

The 15-year-old Belgian prodigy added the senior crown to the European Under-19 title he won last year, and bolstered his reputation as one of the most promising teenagers in snooker.

Brecel, pictured receiving the trophy from Jimmy White, is a year too young to play on the World Snooker Tour as a professional, but looks certain to make an impact on the main circuit in seasons to come.

Holland's Stolk opened a 3-1 lead in the final with runs of 39, 36 and 71, before Brecel took control. A superb 120 break closed the deficit and he took the next on the black with a 34 clearance to level the score.

Brecel added the next two frames and when he compiled a 64 in tenth frame he stood just one from victory. Stolk edged the next on the black to make it 6-4, but his young opponent got the better of the next frame to clinch victory.
