Milkins fought to reach the last four of the 2017 Welsh Open in Cardiff. He won five matches to progress to the semi-finals, but was whitewashed 6-0 by eventual winner Stuart Bingham.

The Milkman reached the semi-finals of the only Asian Tour event of the 2015/16 season. He beat the likes of Dominic Dale and Ben Woollaston, before a 4-1 defeat to Ricky Walden in the last four.

He won three matches to qualify for the 2016 World Championship at the Crucible. Mark Selby was his opponent in the last 32, where he clawed his way back from 7-2 down to trail 7-6. The eventual champion Selby then ran off three on the trot to secure a 10-6 win.

In 2014, Milkins reached the semi-finals of the International Championship thanks to a run which included a 6-1 win over Shaun Murphy and a 6-5 defeat of Marco Fu. He faced Ricky Walden in the last four where he succumbed to a 9-2 loss.

Milkins caused a huge upset at the 2013 World Championships, beating Neil Robertson 10-8. His joy was short lived as he lost out to Walden in the second round at the Crucible.

He is the only player to have made a maximum in qualifying for the World Championships, having done so twice, in 2006 and 2012.

Milkins reached the semi-finals of a full ranking event for the second time in his career at the 2012 Haikou World Open, eventually losing to Stephen Lee.

He made the final of the inaugural one-frame Shoot-Out in Blackpool, beating Martin Gould, Tom Ford, Ryan Day, Judd Trump and Ronnie O’Sullivan. He was forced to settle for the £16,000 runners-up cheque after losing the final to Nigel Bond.
