Phil Burford is proving to be one of the most exciting young players to come out of the British 9-ball pool scene in recent years. Among Phil's achievments are winning the gold medal and prestigious European Junior 9-Ball Champion title in August 2008, followed by silver medal placing in the Junior World Championship, held in Nicaragua in December 2009. Phil regularly competes at the highest level throughout the UK and Europe and in 2012 he spent several months playing in the USA winning multiple tournaments and matching up with and beating top notch players like Francisco Bustamante. Phil is a rising star and we expect many more victories from him in the near future.
