On Friday 27th April my Dad went down to the Crucible for a drink with some of the Snooker regulars and also a few of the referees. Then on Saturday 28th March we returned to have a wander around and chat to a few people we know. You can see the photos from day 7 and 8 of the World Championship below.
After a day off from the snooker the previous day, we were back again on Sunday. It was probably the best day of the championship for me so far, as I met two former world champions and watched four of the worlds best ever players play.
Former professional snooker referee Paul Collier is the latest snooker star to be interviewed on ryan147.com.
Since turning professional in 1991, Paul Collier had a very successful career as a snooker referee. Paul refereed his first Ranking Event Final in January 2002, the Welsh Open. Then in 2004 Paul was lucky enough to take charge of the 2004 World final between Ronnie O’Sullivan and Graeme Dott at the Crucible Theatre. Sadly at the end of the 2004/05 season Paul gave up being a professional referee, however he still takes charge of the Premier League each year.
