Adam: celebrates goal

Blackpool stars Charlie Adam and DJ Campbell swapped footballs for snooker balls this week as they took part in an altogether different type of shoot out!

The Tangerines' players were challenged to a double-header match of Snooker Shoot Out by pros Shaun Murphy and Ricky Walden and Soccer AM was there to see it!

Our very own Tubes went along to see the boys in action ahead of the first ever Shoot Out tournament at the Circus Arena in Blackpool this month, which will see the best 64 snooker players on the planet taking part in a one-frame shoot out.

The event, which will be live Sky Sports, will run from January 28 to 30, and Tubes, Adam and Campbell all got a taste of the thrilling action that viewers have to look forward to.

The game, which saw Campbell and Walden took place in front of school children at a roadshow being held in Blackpool in aid of the Paul Hunter Foundation.

The foundation was established in 2006 in memory of former player Paul Hunter with the specific aim of giving disadvantaged, able bodied and disabled youngsters an opportunity to play snooker.
