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
