Congratulations and good luck to Colin Humphries who will referee today's Welsh Open final, his first.
It's a good omen. Colin often ends up officiating at exciting, high quality contests.
His first ever match at the Crucible saw Nigel Bond edge Stephen Hendry 10-9 on a re-spotted black in 2006.
He also donned the white gloves for Ronnie O'Sullivan's 5-2 defeat of Ali Carter in the 2007 Northern Ireland Trophy, in which Ronnie made five centuries including a 147.
It's good to see a new face being given a chance out in the middle.
