Snooker Scene Magazine‘s new editor is Nick Metcalfe, after it was announced that new owners Curtis Sport are continuing publication.

Metcalfe – a journalist for Metro and Sporting Life, and the co-host of the podcast ‘Talking Snooker’ – succeeds Clive Everton, who had edited the magazine since its launch in 1971.

“This is one of the biggest honours of my career, no question,” Metcalfe told the Snooker HQ website.

“Clive has done a remarkable job with the magazine for more than half a century. Now I can’t wait to lead it into its sixth decade, as it continues to inform and entertain.

“I’m excited about helping to make Snooker Scene an indispensable guide every month to the game we all love.”

Everton, who turned 85 in September, took charge of the magazine for the final time that month.

During his tenure as editor, he had often challenged the way the sport was governed.

A journalist synonymous with the sport, he had been inducted into the hall of fame.

The British Open trophy has been re-named in Everton’s honour.

Snooker Scene was an important source for information about snooker, particularly in the pre-internet era.

It was an authoritative source for results for both the professional and amateur sectors of the sport.
