Hard times for pro who cut his teeth playing snooker in Thurrock

First published in Sport

SNOOKER: Basildon’s Stuart Bingham was knocked out of the Welsh Open yesterday by Joe Perry.

Their dramatic fourth-round encounter went down to the last few balls.

Perry won a scrappy opening frame and doubled his lead with a fine run of 73.

Last year’s Welsh Open finalist Bingham hit back to level at 2-2 but Perry, who has won an Asian Tour event this season, regained the lead with a 51 break.

Bingham then took the next in three visits to set up a decider, before being pipped at the last.
