snooker tournaments between 2003 and 2004.In 2003, she took part in Blackpool's WEPF Ladies World Championship, followed by the Ladies European Championship in Jersey.For the latter competition, Vikki made it to the semi-final before being defeated by fellow pool player Barbara Taylor.Vikki - who is now a full-time mum - was born in Ipswich.In her teenage years, she developed a broad interest in the sport.And though her career was short-lived, having only played in a handful of tournaments as a professional pool player, she's seemingly now living her dream through her partner.The doting couple became engaged in 2010 before tying the knot a year later.Their wedding ceremony was held in Mexico in May 2011, where they were joined by close friends and family members who watched as the couple exchanged their vows.While Vikki has since retired from pool, she shows her act of support by cheering him on at all of his snooker games.When Mark won his second world title against Ding Junhui in 2016, the Leicester-born star dedicated his triumph to his father-in-law, who passed away in September 2015."I've not really got that much family, so I class Vikki's family as my own," the father-of-one shared."She lost her father last year, and two years ago, when I won it, he was here watching."So it was quite emotional him not being here."But I'm sure he was looking down, and if this was for anyone, it was for Terry."Mark gushed about his close bond to Vikki's dad, saying he was extremely close to her father.And while he was no longer going to be around for his son-in-law's snooker games, Mark hoped Vikki's dad was proud of his win."I knew Vikki would be emotional," Mark added."Terry was probably the next biggest thing I had to a father.

Thomas Frank slams "unbelievably lucky" Man Utd and dismisses "crap" excuses
Manchester United for being “unbelievably lucky” in their win over the Bees on Wednesday.The Red Devils travelled to London for the rearranged Premier League clash, with Ralf Rangnick’s side claiming a welcome 3-1 win in their battle to finish in the top four.But during another dreadful first-half, the visitors had David de Gea to thank for keeping the scores goalless heading into the break, with the Spaniard pulling off a series of crucial saves.De Gea twice prevented Mathias Jensen from breaking the deadlock in the first period, with United coming out as a different team for the second period.United quickly punished Brentford for missing those chances when Anthony Elanga controlled Fred’s pass before heading in from close range 10 minutes after the interval.Mason Greenwood then provided the tap-in on a wonderful team goal after Bruno Fernandes raced onto Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliant chest down.And Rangnick’s side made sure of all three points when substitute Marcus Rashford fired in at the near post.Though Ivan Toney pulled a goal back following a scramble, it was too little, too late for Brentford.Who was man of the match in Manchester United's win over Brentford? Let us know in the comments section...With his side having dominated the first-half, Frank was understandably unhappy to have taken nothing from the game.And in his post-match interview, he slammed United for being “unbelievably lucky” while dismissing the excuse of his side missing so many chances.“Unbelievably proud of my team.

Every Time I Die bassist Steve Micciche releases lengthy statement following band breakup
Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley and the band’s other four members – leading to their breakup this week – bassist Steve Micciche has given his perspective in a lengthy string of tweets.On Tuesday (January 18), Micciche, guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams, and drummer Clayton “Goose” Holyoak all shared a joint statement saying their last show with the band took place in December.They wrote: “While we hoped to come to an agreed upon legal statement that outlined the truth, we were informed today of something planned to be released not mutually agreed upon that consists of inaccuracies and controls a narrative to benefit one.”The message went on to say that there has been “no direct communication” with Buckley, saying “it’s either impossible for direct communication with him solely or we’ve been cut off to any and all communication by him himself”.The following day, Buckley responded with a lengthy statement, saying that “any emotional [or] metal connection” he had with his former bandmates had been “thoroughly severed” when he got a letter from a law firm on December 20, which Buckley had shared on the same day the band’s statement was issued.The letter said that the firm, Savur Law, had been retained by the rest of the band “for legal representation in connection with a separation agreement” between them and Buckley, requesting he contact them to discuss “the business terms of an amicable separation between the parties”.The news came after the band said last month that they were working on issues with Buckley “privately” after the singer announced an impromptu hiatus days earlier, saying he’d be skipping three of the band’s scheduled shows.“Caring for my own mental health has taken priority over EVERYTHING
