Our snooker star at the World Junior Championships!

Our young snooker star John Donovan is currently at the WSF World Junior Championship in Albania and the Mildmay Club is proud to be helping him on his way.

John, 17 has been playing in junior tournaments around the UK since the age of 11 and now he’s testing himself against the best under 19s in the world! 

His father, also John, has been a club member for the past four years.

As a gesture of support for our young star, the committee have agreed to donate £250 towards John’s trip. This will hopefully help ease the burden of flight and accommodation costs for the 6 day event.

John was quick to thank the club saying “this support really helps me a lot and I really appreciate it. I’ll do my best to make the club proud of me in Albania”.

His mum, Laura, said “Thank you so much to everyone at the Mildmay club. This means a lot to John and myself”.


UPDATE:  John did the club proud.  He won through the knockout stage of the competition where he was narrowly beaten.  We know he has a great future ahead of him. Congratulations to him, and to snooker coach John Woods who accompanied him on the trip.
