It pays to plan ahead.

Even if it's 21 years in advance.

One snooker fan is £10,000 richer after Judd Trump's World Championship triumph after betting on the then-eight-year-old prodigy to win the title.

And Neil Morrice, 62, backed Trump in 1998, after watching him play at Keynsham snooker club, near Bristol. He placed £10 at odds of 1000/1 to win the title.

Although Trump nearly claimed the prize in 2011 when he lost to John Higgins in the final, he managed to beat the same opponent this time around.

For Morrice, it was just in time because his bet stipulated that Trump would win the title before he turned 30 - which he does on August 20th this year.
