England’s Stan Moody secured the biggest victory of his career at the 2023 World Snooker Federation Junior Championship in Australia to earn a place on the professional circuit for the first time.
From Halifax, the youngster notably defeated former professional Iulian Boiko in the semi-finals before he saw off compatriot Liam Pullen 5-1 in the final to lift the title in Sydney.
Moody also reached the final of the open age category event in Sydney, losing out 5-0 to Ma Hai Long in the WSF Championship.
He won his first match at a professional event whilst competing as an amateur at the 2022 Shoot Out. Aged just 15, Moody recorded a 53-27 win against Lu Ning to reach the second round, before losing to Oliver Lines.
At national level, Moody is a champion at Under-18 (2022), Under-16 (2022) and Under-14 (2019 & 2020).
