Woosnam named new snooker president

Ian Woosnam has been made president of the World Snooker Association (WSA) after Lord Archer's resignation on Tuesday.

The WSA were looking for a sports celebrity to take the game into the new millenium and feel that the Welsh golf wizard was the best man for the job.

WSA chairman Mark Wildman said: "The WSA considers itself fortunate to have attracted as President a sportsman of Ian's calibre and standing. We all look forward to working with him."

Woosnam, winner of the 1991 US Masters at Augusta: "This is a great honour for me. I love snooker and I have some very good friends in the game. I am looking forward to playing my part in snooker's new dawn."
