The Coral United Kingdom Championship from the Guild Hall, Preston The Final
ALEX HIGGINS beat STEVE DAVIS last year by one frame in one of the most exciting finals ever seen. This year they have been seeded to meet in the final once again. Over the last few years the up-and-coming players have produced many upsets and if the seedings are proved correct, this will be the first tournament in which the top two have reached the final. What is certain is that the Preston Guild Hall will be packed and the tension will be mounting as DAVID VINE introduces coverage of the penultimate session.

United Kingdom Championship The Final
Ten frames to be played, E20,000 to be won, an equation that should produce plenty of tension. Although seeded No 2,
STEVE DAVIS was everyone's favourite to win the title for a third time. ALEX HIGGINS , the holder, TERRY GRIFFITHS , who won in 1982, and TONY KNOWLES were dangers, and DENNIS TAYLOR , who began this tournament as the only unbeaten player on the Championship circuit this season, was the man in form. DAVID VINE sets the scene at the Guild Hall, Preston.

Fathers to Be
'The hardest part was to tell them that I wanted to be a priest. So I mentioned it over tea. There was a lot of spluttering, but there's a lot of pride there as well.'
God's call to the priesthood can come at any time, insists Andrew, whose own call came when he was six. He went to Upholland
College last year at the age of 11. Upholland is the Roman Catholic Church's last remaining junior seminary in England and Wales. Its aim is to train schoolboys for the priesthood.
But many Catholics feel that a vocation should be tested in the family and in the parish, and that Upholland is a relic of the past. So is it an institution for brainwashing idealistic teenagers, or is it a place where a responsible decision for or against the priesthood can be made?
