Ebdon romps to victory in UK final

Grinder Peter Ebdon has romped home to win his first UK Championship in York tonight. After a perfectly poised first session ending four frames a piece, Ebdon managed to rack up an extradordinary seven frames to seal victory in the tournament 10 - 6. Hendry's fine form ground to a halt after his vintage play in the week. An emotional Peter Ebdon, said: 'I'm absolutely over the moon. I'm very proud to join a select group of players to win this tournament.' Both players were on the rack in the second session but grinder Ebdon managed to make sure that his lack of form in the session didnt get the better of him. Hendry had a glimpse of a comeback when notching up a century to reduce the defecit to 8 - 6. But the comeback kid failed to produce a sustained comeback as Peter held his nerve to win his first UK championship.
