A new seniors event takes place in Glenrothes on October 31 and November 1 featuring some of snooker's best known faces from the last three decades.

The 110sport-promoted tournament sees Stephen Hendry, Alex Higgins, John Parrott, Cliff Thorburn, Ken Doherty, Jimmy White, Tony Knowles and Tony Drago crossing cues

Higgins faces Thorburn as the 30th anniversary of their 1980 world final approaches. BBC coverage of that match was famously interupted by news footage of the SAS storming the besieged Iranian embassy in London.

Hendry tackles Drago while White takes on Parrott and Doherty meets Knowles.

The matches will be available to view on 110sporttv in November.

“It will be great to see Alex back in action in Scotland and I’m sure there will be plenty of people wanting to see him,” Hendry said.

“Cliff Thorburn will be playing Alex in a re-match of the 1980 ‘SAS’ World Championship final. That match has top billing on Saturday night and rightly so.”

Day tickets for Saturday’s first round and the semi-finals and final on Sunday are available at the box office from Rothes Halls.

Full draw:
Saturday, October 31
2.00pm - Ken Doherty v Tony Knowles
4.00pm - John Parrott v Jimmy White
6.00pm - Stephen Hendry v Tony Drago
8.00pm - Alex Higgins v Cliff Thorburn
