Career

Snaddon began life as a footballer, but turned to snooker after a hip disease ended his football career, turning professional in 1991. He reached the last sixteen of seven ranking events before finally reaching a quarter-final, in the 1998 Irish Open.

He reached one ranking final in his thirteen-year career, in the 1999 Regal China International. A rank outsider in this tournament, he took out the top 16 players James Wattana, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Stephen Lee and Stephen Hendry en route to the final before losing 3–9 to World Champion John Higgins. Snaddon also reached the quarter-final of the Thailand Masters a year later.

Snaddon announced his retirement after a poor 2003–2004 season.
