|Ronnie: The centurion|
|Around the Academy:
Ronnie started playing snooker when he was just seven years old.
His enthusiasm was obvious from the start and his Dad bought him a table as a Christmas present after seeing how keen he was.
The game quickly became the love of Ronnie's life and he would spend every moment he could cueing away on the green baize.
He used to beg his neighbour, who was four years older than him, to come and play with him.
Those sessions would last for around four hours, or when Ronnie's Dad said it was time for his son to go to bed!
By then, Ronnie was playing snooker non-stop and his Dad started taking him to the Ambassador's Club in London's Dean St.
The first tournament success was achieved when Ronnie was nine.
He won a competition between six players in a local club - eventually getting his hands on his first trophy and a voucher for six hours free table time.
Incredibly, Ronnie had barely entered his second decade of life when he made his first century break.
At the ripe old age of 10, he completed a 117 clearance - despite being so nervous he was petrified of missing his pots once he had reached triple figures.
It was a sign of things to come.
