BILL Kelly from Burnside has an intriguing match in prospect tomorrow

when he contests the opening round of the #6000 Rothmans championship at

Corals, Hamilton. The 55-year-old former national billiards champion and

beaten Scottish snooker finalist in 1987 faces WPBSA professional

referee Laurie Annandale of Rosyth in the the best-of-five-frame tie.

A familiar name to emerge at the last-64 stage is Paul Marinello of

Edinburgh, the 20-year-old nephew of ex-Hibernian and Arsenal favourite

Peter, who has an extremely tough tournament baptism on hand against

former dual Scottish amateur champion and world title challenger Stuart

Nivison of the Premier club, Dundee.
