Jackson Page: Teenage snooker player says practice needed after Judd Trump defeat

Fifteen-year-old Jackson Page’s remarkable run at the Welsh Open is over after he lost 4-0 to world number four Judd Trump in the third round.

Welsh schoolboy Page, from Ebbw Vale, had been given a wildcard entry to the tournament in Cardiff.

He overcame Jason Weston and John Astley in the first and second rounds, but was soundly beaten by Trump.

The 27-year-old recorded breaks of 61 and 96 in the first two frames on his way to a comfortable victory.

“I’d have been happy even if I got knocked out first round, as long as I gave it a good go,” said Page.

“To win two games is great, you can’t ask for too much at my age against Judd.

“Even at the start of the tournament it was great, but as it went on it became more intense and real, it is all I want to do really is play snooker.

“I’m glad it is half-term next week.”
