About

Passionate, enthusiastic and determined are some words that I can describe myself about the sport of snooker.

I play snooker regualarly at an amateur level, my best performance being an area finalist for the Rothmans UK Snooker Championship.... many moons ago!!

   

I qualified as a EASB (English Association for Snooker and Billiards) coach in 1998 for a period of six years. Within that time I coached individuals from different venues and from young and old.

There was a brief pause in my snooker coaching progression due to family and work commitments. But now, I'm back!

I have just recently qualified as a WPBSA World Snooker Coach based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

*I'll be coaching "one to ones" and "group sessions" @ Stotfold Conservative Club, Stotfold.

One thing I'd like to add, which may help some of you. I have worked in the Media Broadcasting industry for the last 25 years and have vast experience within the field of "LIVE" broadcasting and I once had a stint (9 months) at presenting as a children's presenter in South Africa.

So, if your a professional and suffer from the lime light or just an amateur player, I can help with your pressures.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for future coaching.

“I started playing snooker again after several years away from the table, but was not able to play to my previous standard. So I got in touch with Andy to see if he could help.

The first coaching session with him, involving video recording and play back, identified a number of problems with my cueing technique and introduced corrective measures to rectify this.

The second session aimed at adopting my improved technique through practice and potting exercises.

I feel a lot more confident now about my game and look forward to enjoying snooker again.

I have recently got back in to snooker and previously I could not pot a ball!

I decided I would get some professional help, I contacted Andy to arrange some coaching lessons. The venue was at Stotfold Conservative Club, Hertfordshire which is a great venue.

After the initial assessment and within a very short period of time of our first lesson, Andy found that my stance was the problem and by the end of lesson, “I had found my sweet spot”!

I was so frustrated with my game and not able to pot a ball, but now I am over the moon, and I’m sure my game will improve no end.

 

Andy is a gentleman and very knowledgeable about the game. He’s very easy to talk to and I’m sure  if I was left to do this by myself A) It would have took many hours and B) A lot of money and frustration would have been spent. 

 

Great value for money and I can’t wait until I get to play again.

Thanks a lot mate it was a great lesson. Looking forward to another session soon.

 

Regards
