Fifteen-year-old Jackson Page’s breakout run at the Welsh Open was ended in a third-round defeat to Judd Trump.

The Welsh schoolboy failed to make an impact against the world number four as he lost 4-0.

However, he can draw on an impressive first professional tournament, which saw him beat Jason Weston and John Astley.

“It was great out there but there were a lot of nerves and pressure too,” said Page. “I had a lot of support behind me but Judd is one of the best in the world. You won’t get many chances and when you do, you have to take them.

" Now it is back to blazers and ties. It will be interesting when I go back, I don’t know what people will say. I have loved every minute of this tournament."

Mark Selby was a surprise casualty as he went down 4-1 to Yan Bingtao.

Yan made breaks of 57, 63 and 99 as he fought back from losing the first frame to progress on his 17th birthday.
