John Twist Coming To A T.V Near You !!
John Twist has had a great year - passing his Class One Referee's exam after 8 hours of refereeing at the National Finals in Sheffield. He was then invited to referee the play offs for the main tour places, did the Paul Hunter final English one, went to Rotterdam in July making his my T.V debut on Eurosport with the match between John Higgins v Steven McGuire ( getting lots of good feedback on his handling of the game).
He then travelled to Doncaster for the PTC 3 and took charge of three matches on World Snooker live streaming T.V (feedback again was very good) and as a result he has been moved up to the next level and moved into the top 60 world snooker referee rankings and can now referee on the main tour - Well Done John.
