Newcastle’s Sam Craigie achieved his strongest result to date at a ranking event by finishing third in the inaugural WST Pro Series in March 2021.

A serial winner across all age groups at national level, Craigie first turned professional for a single season at the start of the 2011/12 season, before securing his return in 2016 by successfully qualifying at the EBSA Play-Offs event.

Having again regained his tour card in 2018 via Q School, Craigie defeated Sunny Akani, Ryan Day, Ali Carter and Liang Wenbo at the 2019 China Open to reach his first ranking event quarter-final before losing to eventual champion Neil Robertson.

In 2021, he qualified for the Crucible stages of the World Championship for the first time, losing 10-4 to Mark Williams in the opening round.

His best result at a Triple Crown Series event came at the 2022 UK Championship, when he defeated the defending champion Zhao Xintong 6-2 in the opening round, followed by Ryan Day to reach the quarter-finals. He ultimately lost out 6-4 to eventual champion Mark Allen.

Craigie is a former world under-21 champion (2010) and is the younger brother of Stephen Craigie, previously a main tour player during the 2008/9 season.
