Details of the last five years coaching activities:

I am a professional snooker coach based at the Swinton Leisure Centre: 1 Wellington Road, Salford, Manchester, M40 4BR. Details available on the website: www.swintonleisure.co.uk/nwejsa

I also volunteer at Cue Zone events at Major UK tournaments by arrangements with the WPBSA.

Appointed “Director of Snooker Coaching” at Salford City College, 2011/15.

My Academy, The North West Junior Snooker Academy, was awarded “Club Mark” in 2013

Awarded The “Special Recognition to Sport” award, for 2013/14

I am also an ”Emeritus Member of the Salford Sports Network”

I was a semi-professional player for many years and have a highest break of 141. I became a Referee in the 1980s for Wales and England. During trips with the Welsh Association, I was asked to help some players from other countries with their game, and the interest as a coach came from there.

So being a player and a referee, it was a natural progressive step to become a coach as they are both the basic fundamentals of becoming a good coach and the game.

I have been an international snooker coach travelling all over the world for over 30 years.

Some Professional Players I have Coached: Jason Ferguson, Paul Hunter, Jimmie Michie, Fergal O’Brien, Michael Judge, Stephen O’Conner, Asian Champion Sam Chong.
