I wrote Snooker Scene Blog for the best part of eight years and it’s worth pointing out straight from the off that this new site does not mean my association with Snooker Scene has ended in any way.

But I felt it was the right time to move from a blog to a more general website and have teamed up with Hector Nunns, an experienced snooker journalist, to provide news and interviews as well as comment on the green baize world.

This section will be the place where we post the sort of pieces you will have read on SSB over the years.

We wanted to launch Inside Snooker in time for the Masters. Bear with us. Not everything is yet in place but we hope to gradually add content over the coming weeks.

Big thanks must go to Tom Doggett for his expert assistance in setting up the site and Monique Limbos for her excellent photographs.

As you will have seen, Hector and myself have been interviewing some of the players in action at the Masters next week. When the tournament starts we will be providing reports on the matches and reaction from the winners and losers.

You may also want to check out our off-table page for backstage snippets and bits of news.

We hope you enjoy the new site. You can send us feedback at contact@inside-snooker.com or, if you have a story you think we may be interested in, at stories@inside-snooker.com.
