Morris, Van Boening and Deuel Complete Team USA
Heavyweight Line up Heading to York Hall
The line up is now complete and Matchroom Sport can announce that Rodney Morris, Shane Van Boening and Corey Deuel will take the final three berths on the American side to contest this year’s PartyCasino.com Mosconi Cup which takes place at the York Hall, London from 9-12 December.
They will be joining Johnny Archer, Dennis Hatch and non-playing captain Nick Varner in what is a very strong looking side. With no debutants this year, it is a highly experienced outfit who have won a total of 17 Mosconi Cups between them.
Corey Deuel, who was part of the winning side at the famous East London venue in 2000 and 2001, could not contain his excitement; “It’s going to be great to get back to the York Hall as I have great memories there and I was MVP for the US team twice.
“It’s such an honour to be a part of such a great event at this historic venue. I’m sure the fans will root for me to miss but it’s all in good fun so I love them anyway!”
Deuel will be playing in his seventh Mosconi Cup and will be looking to improve on his 16 wins from 27 matches. Also making his seventh outing in a Team USA shirt is popular Hawaiian Rodney Morris.
“I am very excited to be playing in my seventh Mosconi Cup. Also, this is my first time playing at the York Hall so I’m interested to see if I can handle the pressure. I’ve heard the crowd is tough there but I love the UK so it will be a blast I’m sure,” said Morris.
The final spot goes to Shane Van Boening, a man who last year joined the small but illustrious club of players who have knocked in the winning 9 ball in the competition.#
“I am honoured to be playing in the event this year event and I’m looking forward to see who is going to take home the famous Cup,” said the South Dakota Kid
Taking place at East London’s famous York Hall, following an eight year absence, the PartyCasino.com Mosconi Cup features two five man teams representing Europe and the USA competing over four days from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th December.
