Lee appeal adjourned

Stephen Lee's appeal against his 12-year ban from snooker has been adjourned until February 17.

The 39-year-old from Trowbridge was given the suspension last September after being found guilty of seven charges of match-fixing dating back to 2008 and 2009.

Lee continues to maintain his innocence.

The World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association announced on Friday: "The first part of Stephen Lee's appeal against his conviction for match fixing has been adjourned until Monday 17th February 2014."
