The Welshman held his nerve in the final as he denied David Grace 4-3 in a deciding frame thriller.

The event, organised by Paul Mount in Gloucester since 2010, raises money for Breast Cancer Now.

Prior to this year’s edition, £62,000 had been collected for breast cancer charities and a further £11,000 was raised over the past week.

Well over 300 players took part, with Shane Castle the best performing amateur as he reached the last four, where he was beaten 4-1 by Grace.

Jones, who himself earns £2,000 for the triumph, whitewashed countryman Ryan Day in the semi-finals in which he also compiled the highest break of the tournament, a superb 138.

The 28 year-old joins Ronnie O’Sullivan, Peter Lines, Joe Perry, Stuart Bingham, Mark Joyce and Michael Holt as previous winners of the Pink Ribbon.
