The 1990 StormSeal UK Championship was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 24 November and 2 December 1990 at the Guild Hall in Preston, England.[1] The televised stages were shown on BBC.

Hendry beat 19-year-old fellow Scot Alan McManus in the semi-final by a 9–5 scoreline. McManus, who was in his rookie season,[2] had just beaten Dennis Taylor, Steve Newbury, Silvino Francisco and Jimmy White to make the semis. Nigel Bond, who was a finalist at the Grand Prix a month earlier,[3] made it to the quarter-finals losing to Davis.

Defending champion Stephen Hendry defeated Steve Davis 16–15 in the final again. The highest break of the tournament was 140 made by John Parrott.
