1978

The 1977 Super Crystalate UK Championship was a professional non-ranking snooker tournament that took place at the Tower Circus in Blackpool between 26 November and 3 December 1977.

Mike Watterson instituted this new championship with sponsorship from manufacturers of the Super Crystalate balls.[1][2] The inaugural event was held at the Tower Circus in Blackpool, but the following year the event moved to the Guild Hall in Preston, where the tournament remained for the next twenty years.[1]

The event was won by Patsy Fagan, a London-based Dubliner, a professional for less than a year.[1] The final was televised and shown on BBC One's Grandstand. Joe Davis presented Fagan with the trophy. Fagan earned £2,000 out of the £7,000 total prize money.
