Why choose a professional snooker coach?

Jim is considered one of the top coaches in snooker as his list of past successes, including world ranked stars, demonstrate what he is cabable of. His list of successful players, both amateur and professional, continues to grow as can be seen in both the News section and Testimonial section of the website. Jim also has a very successful Junior Academy with champions and International players in every age group.

Another reason to choose Jim is, as a player at the top professional level he was able to reach 29th in the World Rankings and was the first Scottish player to play at the Crucible, winning matches against many of the top professional players.

Having 30 years experience as a player and a coach, Jim can spot the smallest of things in players, that other coaches can't, and by correcting these little faults he can help you make the difference between winning and loosing.

That is why you should choose Jim Donnelly as your professional coach.

Anthony Reaches the Quarter Finals



Former Improve Your Snooker star Anthony McGill has shown his class by making it through to the Quarter Finals of this years UK championship snooker tournament. Anthony who was the most successful Scottish junior ever during his time with Jim, is now fulfilling his potential in the professional game.

Anthony, 23, was playing Ronnie O'Sullivan in only his second quarter final in a ranking tournament, after beating four-time champion and another former Improve Your Snooker student John Higgins 6-5 in the last 16 on Wednesday. 

But O'Sullivan, who made a top break of 125, was impressed by his Scottish opponent and tipped him to have a big future in the sport.

"I made some really good clearances, but I couldn't shake him off," O'Sullivan stated. "I have nothing left after that game and I had to draw on every bit of my experience to win it.

"Anthony is a bit like Mark Selby where he has got such a good all-round game. I hope he goes on to play snooker for many years to come because snooker is lucky to have him."

Congratulations Anthony
