A Stevenage teenager was right on cue at Pontin's recently.

Dale Chester, a 14-year-old from Vardon Road, won the title of Young Pool Champion 2006 in the 11-14 age group at the grand final at the company's Prestatyn Sands centre in North Wales in November.

Having won his original heat at Pontin's Hemsby, Norfolk, back in August, he triumphed over 63 other competitors who had returned to the finals after winning heats.

The competition attracted hundreds of entrants at the eight Pontin's centres over the summer.

Having clinched the title by beating Kristopher Midgley from Bradford 3-1, Dale received a cheque for £100 as well as the winner's trophy.

His hobbies are pool, snooker and football and he is a member of Stevenage Colts Football Club.
