Today, this man, the World Seniors UK Champion, reached 37 years, 7 months, 3 days & counting at the service of professional snooker, overcoming Steve Davis longevity record.
It’s quite remarkable! Congratulations Jimmy!
David Hendon stated that Fred Davis was a pro for 57 years, so Jimmy has some way to go. Fred Davis 57 years playing longevity is a fact, but nobody would be able to stay a pro nowadays not going past R1 in any ranking event for 12 seasons and being ranked n°259. Fred Davis, a great player, had an extraordinary career, and deserves every credit for still playing at 80, but the situations aren’t comparable.
