How did you get involved in Coaching:

I was a Semi-Professional player for many years and have a highest break of 141.

I became a Referee in the 1980’s 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, IBSF World Champion Stephen O’Conner, Asian Champion Sam Chong.
