Fan profile: Quinton Cade

Seasons greetings my snooker followers.

I hope you're all enjoying the festive season but, just in case you're struggling without any snooker, here's another profile of one of my readers.

Read how Quinton Cade sees the game and his ambitions to be a future champion of the sport. 

Name: Quinton Cade

Age: 20

From: Norwich

Occupation: A-Level graduate. Currently unemployed.

Highest break:142 (in practice)

Followed snooker since: I began playing when I was about 9-years-old in an after-school club.

First memories: Watching Stephen Hendry win his seventh World Championship. 

First favourite player:  Stephen Lee. His cue action is as smooth as silk, even now. I always hoped he would achieve more.

First live match: Hendry v Ebdon. World Championship final.

Best memory: I made my first century at 17.

Greatest player: I believe Stephen Hendry is the greatest champion.

Favourite player: There are so many to choose from but if I had to choose out of Ronnie O'Sullivan, John Higgins or Mark Williams it would have to be Higgins. He is my idol. I want to follow in his direction.

Snooker in 10 years' time will... be a dominant sport across the world. We will keep breaking through into more different countries.

If I could make one change to the game... I'd take away the miss rule. It seems too unfair if you miss a ball by a whisker.
I love snooker because... it's such a beautiful game and can set the greatest of challenges and expresses people's ability to cope under pressure. I also love it because I don't want to just be some guy from Norwich When I die I want to be a champion. I know I will be.


  1. I think hes a great player better keep a tab on this young man , something very special about him, i see him playing at Rileys Norwich and he knocks balls in off lampshades hes got a fantastic cue action which in my opinion is one of the best i've seen for a long time, i gave him 3 frames he knocked 72, 89 and 108 in under 30 minutes was very fluent stuff. wish people would stop doubting him by saying he'll never make it. i want to see more support for him GET THIS MAN NOTICED.

  2. hes shit ive seen him play nd he struggles to make 20's

  3. @Anonymous your wrong there if he puts his mind to it he can do it, he lacks self belief as no one offers him support ever since his father died he lost some confidence but i can sense true devotion he trys so hard and it doesn't help his confiidence with so many doubters, give him a chance and he will do it.
