Coach Background Information

Coaching Achievements:
Over 15 years coaching experience, ages from 7 to 80, in Snooker and Billiards. I ran Snooker enrichment lessons with local secondary schools for nearly five years. I started playing just before I was 15 years old.

Reasons to Coach:
Apart from my enjoyment in helping people to improve, my two sons who are 7 and 10 years old have gave me the hunger, inspiration to get back into coaching, to give kids a break from digital services, games consoles, streets, etc, and set up a junior academy as well as one on one coaching and adult coaching sessions.

Where I coach:
I am truly spoilt with my coaching facilities as I have my own private room with two match template set up tables at Greenbaize Ltd at Thornaby in Teesside. See photos on Greenbaize Ltd Facebook page.

Playing Achievements:
Former two times English Amateur Billiard Champion. England ranked No. 1 player for 3 years running playing for England before turning professional.
Won over 30+ National circuit Billiards titles.
Won over 100+ local league titles in Snooker and Billiards.
IBSF World Open Billiards Championship runner up in 1999.
Turned professional at Billiards in Nov 1999.
Stopped playing in July 2008 when ranked No. 10 in the World due to lack of playing opportunity and for a new job career and started a family.
I’ve been very lucky to go all around the World with the game in tournaments.
