Comment"I have been a professional for 14 years and played and mixed with the best but never met anyone with patsys wide range of knowledge of the game".

Alfie Burden, Harrow, London.


Comment"What I particularly like about Patsy's coaching style is the way he keeps me motivated and focussed even when I'm having an off day - my highest break before coaching was 34; it's now 95. I've been having lessons for three months".

About Me...

Placeholder Image

Born in 1951 in Ireland, I began to play snooker at the age of 15. I became professional in 1972 and won the UK Snooker Championship in 1977 defeating John Virgo in a nailbiting semi-final 9-8 and Doug Mountjoy in the final 12-9. Following my retirement from the game I have met some wonderful people in professional snooker but what gives me most satisfaction is snooker coaching at the amateur level. I coach some of the countries finest talents including World Number 83 Alfie Burden.

Patsy and I met in 1973 when he came into my local club in Charlton, Manchester to play a money match against me.  We turned professional around the same time in 1977 and we are both UK Champions - Patsy won the tournament in 1977 and myself a couple of years later in 1979.  We still remain great friends to this day.  I would not hesitate to recommend Patsy as a coach to any player - his knowledge of the game is second to none.
