Speaking at the reception the Mayor said:


“I am thrilled with Mark’s recent form, which has seen him winning the UK Championship and World Grand Prix in style and retaining his Northern Ireland Open title before a home crowd in Belfast.

 

“Mark is a great ambassador for the sport and Antrim, and is also a role model for those coming up through the ranks. He is very deserving of his recent success and I wish him all the best for the future.”

 


Mark Allen added:


“I would like to thank the Council for hosting this event and for their continued support.  I am proud to call Antrim my home and I would like to pay tribute to the local fans who are on the journey with me.”
