Another year drawing to a close and another trip to York (just not for me, I’m saving myself for Llandudno in March!!!). As you (probably) know, the UK Championship is one of the biggest tournaments on the calander, and it’s the one i look forward to the most, after the World Championship and (don’t murder me please) the Shootout.
