Snooker: Williams to meet players

Click to follow
Rex Williams is to meet players in Blackpool today in an attempt to heal the divisions he admits exist within the sport.

The World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association chairman, involved in a row with leading manager Ian Doyle and the world No 1, Stephen Hendry, for the past month, will speak to players before the World Championship qualifiers.

Williams will stress that players should make sure their vote, at a special meeting yet to be scheduled, is cast only as they themselves wish on what is expected to be a motion of no confidence in the WPBSA regime.
