My Summer

My last competitive match was when I lost 10 - 5 against Jimmy White in the Embassy World Championship.
Since then though I have been busy preparing for the new season which starts in september.
I have spent many hours during the summer practising on my own looking to improve
and hopefully I will hit the ground running at the start of the season.

In addition to this practice I also played some exhibitions in The Spawell Templeogue,
The Racecourse Snooker club in Baldoyle and in Dr. Cubbages in Moate.
I also gave some coaching lessons including, for the second year, my summer clinic for juniors
in the club where I am resident professional, Raphaels in Lucan.

Since August 1st I have started playing against some of my regular practice partners to sharpen up my game,
and against Ken Doherty, Gary Hardiman, Colm Gilcreest and Rodney Goggins
I have been very happy with my form .

My confidence was further increased when I won the Raphaels Pro-Am beating Gary Hardiman 5-0,
Ken Doherty 5-4 and Michael judge 5-3 in the Final. (see Latest)
