Stars of The Future

Saif Akram

Saif had never played snooker till his dad brought him to the Improve Your Snooker Academy a year ago. He has made great progress and is a natural player.

His top break in practice is 42 and as he is only 11 years old this is an excellent break. He will be entering the junior events this year and we have high hopes for his success.

Andrew Mackie

11 year old Andrew has played in the junior tournaments of the season just finished and finished number 5 on the ranking list.

Whilst on holiday he won the Open Snooker Tournament held by the hotel he was staying in. He has a high break of 38 in practice and will be a force to be reckoned with in the junior tournament for the coming season.

Captain Sam Again!

Improve your Snooker Academy member Sam McKay will once again captain the under 16’s side at this year’s Home International event at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds. This is the second time in succession Sam has had this honour and will lead the team out against England, Wales and Republic of Ireland.

Sam, who recently just turned 14, is the Scottish national champion at both under 14 and under 16 levels and is also ranked number 1 at both levels in just his second full season of competition.

Jim would like to wish Sam all the best and is looking forward to some exciting matches over the next few days, keep up all the hard work Sam!
