Following significant restructuring of the sport during the last 12 months, the WPBSA now controls the governance of the sport and represents the interest of the professional players.

Ferguson, chairman of the WPBSA, was retained in his role by 31 votes to three, while former Metropolitan Police detective chief superintendent David Douglas, snooker star Steve Davis, former referee Alan Chamberlain and Zhang Xiaoning of the Chinese Billiards and Snooker Association have also kept their positions.

Ferguson said: "The board and I welcome this vote of confidence from the membership, which provides us with the stability we need to move forward. However, there is a huge task ahead and we must not be complacent following this period of radical change.

"This board had been carefully put together and represents the global direction in which we are heading. Each individual member of the board brings a different and highly-valued skill."
