Cork’s Aaron Hill defeats Judd Trump
Aaron Hill pulled off one of the shocks of the year last last night.
The Corkman defeated former World Champion Judd Trump by four frames to one in the Northern Ireland open.
The 20 year old will now face Tom Ford in the last 32.
Hill says he played very well last night.
“It’s an absolutely brilliant feeling. I stayed positive the whole match and I said I’d rather go close by missing something than playing defensive.
“So I play my own game from the get go, attacked and played some good snooker.
“I’m really happy with how I got over the line. I had a tricky yellow to the middle, instead of putting a colour safe or sticking it up behind the yellow I went for it. So I’m really happy with the way I finished the match.”
💬 "To get a big win, in front of my family, a big crowd and a big venue – it means the world to me!"
