Alan has been playing cue sports since he was old enough to see over the table. Growing up in London, his first experience with pool was English 8 ball and he took to the game immediately. Alan enjoyed playing pool and snooker with his father and brother throughout his childhood, although he never took the game seriously seeing it more as a hobby.
At the age of 22 Alan moved Denmark and after a few years without pool, his love for the game led him to the local pool hall to give 9 ball a try. He joined the Danish tour soon after and hasn’t looked back since. He is now one of the top players in Denmark and has won the Jutland Regional Championships in 8 & 9 ball (2006), the Danish Team Championships (2008) and the Danish 8 ball Championship (2009).
Alan is now also playing on the Eurotour competing with Europes elite and he is hoping to fulfill his dream of representing Ireland in major tournaments in the near future.
