Snooker ace cheers on Sheffield Steelers

Have your say

Snooker champion Willie Thorne swapped his cue for skates to officiate at a Sheffield ice hockey match.

The 14-time tournament winner, a familiar face at The Crucible before he became a sports commentator, appeared at the Motorpoint Arena for Sheffield Steelers’ game against Nottingham Panthers as a guest of sponsor Purpose Media. He officiated on the puck draw and man of the match presentation.
