Peter Ebdon wins UK Championship

WSA: Maplin Electronics UK ChampionshipPeter Ebdon won the Maplin Electronics UK Championship for the first time.

The gritty Englishman looked like a winner throughout the event. In a somewhat scrappy final he managed to beat Scotland's Stephen Hendry 10-6.

This was Ebdon's seventh ranking title and first since the 2004 Irish Masters. He now joins an illustrious list of players who have won both the World Championship and the UK Championship. The other players are Steve Davis (England), Terry Griffiths (Wales), Alex Higgins (N.Ireland), Hendry, John Parrott (England), Ronnie O'Sullivan (England), John Higgins (Scotland) and Mark J Williams (Wales).

The win puts Ebdon at No.4 in the provisional rankings. Hendry lies in 7th position. The list is headed by Higgins who surpassed Ireland's Ken Doherty after his semi-final appearance.

The event took place in York Barbican Centre, England Dec 4-17.
