Have you ever met any of the players?
“Harry Maguire, I saw him out on holiday a couple of years back. Luke Shaw I speak to now and again, I’ve seen him quite a few times and he’s very friendly. Scott McTominay is someone that messages me now and again. Those three are the ones that I’ve spoken to.”
If you hadn’t been a snooker player and you could have been any United player instead, who would you like to have been?
“I think Paul Scholes is a good one. He was never really someone to take the limelight or anything, he just went about his business quietly, he didn’t really do interviews and stuff. He got massive respect and that’s something that I’d like to have in snooker. You don’t have to scream and shout, but as long as the other players know that you’re good at what you do, I think that’s the respect that you want.
Have you got a favourite kit from down the years?
“There’s a photo my mum and dad have at home, I’ve got a United kit on and my brother’s got a QPR top on – I don’t know why! It’s the grey one, from the ’95/96 season I think, with a collar. So that’s one that reminds me of my childhood, a picture that my parents have got up around their house and one that brings back good memories.”
