Chris Small denied financial assistance by snooker body

The Daily Record reports that snooker player and ankylosing spondylitis sufferer Chris Small, who was forced to retire because of his disease and who was the beneficiary of a benefit auction last year, has been turned down by the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association's benevolent fund, a fund designed to provide financial assistance to players who have fallen on hard times. The article quote former BBC commentator Clive Everton: "He has his whole life to face and has no means of earning a living. If Chris Small isn't worthy of a grant, who is?" The fund has been associated with questionable payouts in the past, according to the article.
