The Free Press has teamed up with Ed Miliband to pocket a superb prize – the chance for two readers to play doubles with snooker legend five-times world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan.

The event is being held on Friday October 23, from 7pm, and has been organised by Mr Miliband.

The Doncaster North MP and five-time world champion Ronnie, known as “The Rocket”, will visit a school and a youth project in Doncaster as part of Mr Miliband’s School Speakers project.

But the pair want to offer two lucky readers a break and join them in the evening for a game of pool.

Mr Miliband said: “Ronnie has kindly agreed to spend a day with me in Doncaster.

“We’ll be speaking to young people at a school and a youth project and I’ll be showing Ronnie some of the work I do as MP for Doncaster North.

“As part of our day we’ll be playing pool at a venue in my constituency in the evening, and I’d like very much for two Free Press readers to join me, and Ronnie, for a doubles game – and maybe a beer or two.”

To be in with a chance to play pool doubles with Ed Miliband and Ronnie Sullivan, answer the following question and email to: Please mark subject Ed & Ronnie competition.

QUESTION: What is Ronnie O’Sullivan’s nickname?

Both competition winners will need to be Doncaster residents. The venue will be in Mr Miliband’s Doncaster North constituency.

Ronnie and Mr Miliband last played pool during the General Election campaign in April.

Ronnie O’Sullivan made his first century break at age 10 and his first maximum break at age 15.

He turned professional in 1992, at the age of 16, and soon earned the nickname “The Rocket” because of his rapid playing style.

His first major success came when he won the 1993 UK Championship at the age of 17 years and 358 days, making him the youngest player ever to win a professional ranking tournament, a record he still holds. He is also the youngest player ever to have won the Masters, having captured his first title in 1995 at the age of 19 years and 69 days.

Closing date for entries is October 14 at noon.
