Alan McManus was not one of those players who grabbed the headlines as a teenager but snooker did not have a very high profile in Scotland at that time.
Although Alan has not added to his tournament victories, he continued to be one of the most consistent players and in 1996/7 was runner up in the Scottish Masters and reached a clutch of quarter and semi-finals in ranking events.
Alan's winnings up the end of the 2000/01 season total over £1.6M and his record is notable.

McManus however, known on the snooker tour as 'angles' for his knowledge of the table, again got the two snookers he needed, but then conceded the frame after leaving the last red over a center pocket.

 Sport | McManus claws his way back to victory
The 29th and last Benson and Hedges Masters began with a remarkable match that saw Alan McManus, the 1994 champion, prevail by 6-5 over Mark Davis, the winner of the qualifying competition.
McManus opened with a run of 245 unanswered points to lead 3-0 but a run of five straight frames, including back-to-back centuries, put Davis 5-3 up before McManus coolly won the remaining three frames.
McManus, characteristically resolute, clinched that frame with a break of 63, levelled with one of 84 and, unseduced by avoidable risk, built up a 54-0 lead in the decider which Davis was unable to threaten.

Alan McManus, who despise travelling and relishes home comforts, produced the goods in his own back yard as the Regal Masters got under way at Motherwell Civic Centre today.
McManus pounced with a 38 break to draw level at 3-3, moved ahead by claiming the seventh with a well controlled contribution of 74 - after O'Brien had jawed a simple fl off its spot - and came through a marathon 51 minute eighth frame to progress.
Mind you, he'll be coming out with all guns blazing because he hasn't had a good start to the season and he'll want to make amends." McManus was referring to a memorable quarter-final at Motherwell back in 1996 when he shocked Hendry with a 6-3 win, highlighted by exceptional long potting and break building.
