Neil Robertson has been named the World Snooker Tour’s Player of the Year, recognising an emphatic season which saw him win four tournaments.
The Australian enjoyed success at the English Open, the Masters, Players Championship and the Tour Championship, and will now have an extra piece of silverware to add to his collection.
Despite enjoying the most prolific season of his career, Robertson was left disappointed after a second round exit at the World Championship against Jack Lisowski. However, his incredible 147 against Lisowski saw him also pick up Magic Moment of the Year, after becoming only the eighth player to make a maximum at the Crucible.

There was also success for his compatriot Wu Yize, with the 18-year-old winning Rookie of the Year after reaching the last 32 of ranking events on three occasions.
