‘Antrim Ferrari’ Jordan Brown always had the drive to make it to the top, one of his former colleagues at a local filling station has revealed.

The 33-year-old was working at Islandbawn filling station in Antrim up until three years ago when he decided to give full-time snooker one last go after years of struggling to make his mark at the highest level.

And one of Brown’s former colleagues at the filling station, Adam Gray, spoke of the emotion he felt when watching his 9-8 victory over Ronnie O’Sullivan in a thrilling Welsh Open final on Sunday.
