Sandra Bryan from Wexford is our 6th player on the all time list with RILSA, Sandra joined RILSA in 2014 and immediately met with great success winning the 2014 National Amateur Championship in a close contested final against Annette Newman, Sandra would go on to have many closely contested finals with Annette over the following seasons. The 2014-2015 season was Sandra’s most successful to date, dominating it by winning all 5 National Ranking events, a fantastic achievement for her.
Sandra added the Inaugural National 6 Red title to her list in 2015 and with her success, Sandra finished the season Irish number 1 which is credit to her overall results and participation during her first season with RILSA.
She started the 2015-2016 season reaching the final of the National Amateur Championship once again, showing her good form but it was Annette who stood in her way and won on this occasion. Sandra went on to reach a semi and quarter finals of two National Ranking events during the season and retain her National 6 Red title in a close final with Annette.
She would finish her second season as number 2 again a great result for her. Sandra would go on during the 2016-2017 season to reach 4 semi finals of National Ranking events, with a runner up place in another, keeping her number 2 spot as she continued to put the pressure on her opponents during these events.
Her 3 in a row wins of the National 6 Red title was yet another feather in her cap as she made history in female cue sports in 2017 but she was not finished taking National titles yet as she overcame Annette Newman once again to take the Inaugural National Masters Championship, just fantastic results for the Wexford woman.
After a season out, Sandra came back towards the end of 2019 to once again retain a title and it was the National Masters Championship. With a total of 6 National Titles to her name, is a testament to her standard of play and certainly puts her one of Ireland’s top Amateur female Snooker players on this list.
