WATCH: World Seniors Championship Final – John Parrott vs Peter Lines

Twelve have become two as the 2017 World Seniors Championship reaches its conclusion on Friday evening with the final in Scunthorpe.

John Parrott and Peter Lines emerged from contrasting semi-finals to each stand one victory away from the £10,000 winner’s cheque and a ticket into the World Championship qualifying stages at Ponds Forge in Sheffield next month.

1991 world champion Parrott fired in a tremendous black to beat Jonathan Bagley 3-2 in the day’s opening semi-final clash.

Many hoped that seven-time Crucible king Stephen Hendry would continue along his quest back to the scene of his most famous triumphs but he never recovered from losing the first two close frames to Lines in their semi-final encounter.

Lines, albeit a qualifier against the number three seed, will undoubtedly start the showpiece finale as the favourite considering it’s not as long since his demise from the Main Tour and the fact that he reached the last 32 of the UK Championship this season after ousting Neil Robertson in the opening round.

The final will be the first to four frames, with a black ball shoot out settling matters should the scores tie at three frames apiece.

You can watch proceedings unfold at the Bath Halls below.

The final is scheduled to begin at 7pm GMT
