WORLD champion Ronnie O'Sullivan will be in action as top-class snooker returns to Ipswich.

O'Sullivan, who took the Embassy World Championship crown last year for the second time, is set to compete when the Corn Exchange hosts one of the rounds of the Betfred.com Premier League.

It will be the first time professional snooker has been held in Ipswich since the days of the old Tolly Cobbold Classic tournaments, also held at the Corn Exchange, in the 1970s and early 1980s.

The event, on Thursday, April 7, will be sponsored by The Evening Star.
