Snooker - Hawkins emerges out of Championship League group six

Barry Hawkins sealed victory ins Championship League group six with three wins after beating Stephen Maguire 3-1 in the Crondon final.

It was heartbreak for Maguire, who had also gone down in the previous group final.

“I have been in good form lately and it has been nice to keep it going, to keep playing some decent stuff and I played quite well in the final tonight,” said Hawkins.

“Stephen has been in three finals now and wanted to get through to the winners’ group so he was trying his hardest but I played well and am pleased to get through such a tough group.

“There is only one more group left now so to know I will be in the winners’ group is great. I managed to get in it last year but the line-up this year is probably the toughest ever, and I am delighted to be in it,” he added.

Hawkins joins Martin Gould, John Higgins, Ali Carter, Ding Junhui and Mark Allen in the final group on March 20 and 21.

25 of the world's top players are competing in the Premier League qualifying tournament.

Seven groups of seven players produce seven winners who play in one further group in March to determine the winner who will play in the 2013 Premier League.

In each group, the top four players from the round robin stage will contest the semi-finals and final over the best of five frames.

The players coming sixth and seventh in the group will be relegated and will not feature in any further group matches and therefore three players will leave and be replaced by a further three players.
