This is the third time I've tried to post this, with VPN issues in China. Third time lucky I hope!
I've posted here and there on the forum, but haven't introduced myself. Apologies for that.
I was born in Bolton, but have lived in China since 2003 (Chengdu and Chongqing for those of you that know China). I have a 5 year old daughter and a 6-month old son, Jay-Jay. My biggest claim to fame is perhaps running a football team for 4 years. We had players who had had top flight experience in Ghana and France and we had a player who'd played for the Dominican national team. We were competing against teams who had players who had played for China. We almost qualified for the Chinese FA Cup in 2014.
I watch all the snooker I can, but prefer the early round best of 7s (sacrilege! burn him!) rather than the finals or matches with stars.
We've recently started a work snooker league, and I'm delighted to report that I'm currently 3rd out of 8. My top break is a 5 ball 13 contribution, which should give you some idea of the standard. It's competitive though, the bottom players have had results against the top players. And it's fun.
I'm friends with Zhou Yuelong and Tian Pengfei. Tian PF is a top bloke who is keen to promote snooker from a young age in China, and I'm looking to start up a set of snooker clubs in SW China with Zhou YL in the near future. Let me know if you'd like to get involved in that business venture.
My favourite posters are Kolompar, Deewee and SteveJJ, who have a great knowledge of the game at the grassroots level, which I’m very interested in. And Dan-cat of course, who is just cool. Everyone loves Snookerfan too, despite him being a West Brom fan. Shoutout to cueview too, whose blog is frankly brilliant. I find Cloudstrife’s posts offensive, and don’t buy that he’s a troll, or is just joking.
I love music, particularly alternative rock. If you’ve heard Swound!, Godzilla Black, or Zun zun Egui, you should get in touch. We could do some sharing. My favourite songs come from Gomez, Millencolin and Ocean Colour Scene
