Fifteen-year-old schoolboy Jackson Page has reached the second round of the Welsh Open snooker tournament.

The wildcard entry trailed Jason Weston 3-1, but potted a re-spotted black to knock out the world number 123.

The Ebbw Vale born potter is studying for his GCSEs and is playing in his first professional tournament.

Page will take on world number 78 John J Astley in round two.

I had to dig deep.

I played a bad shot on one of the reds and at that point I thought it was over as he was in.

But when that last black went in, it was just unreal.

– Jackson Page, snooker player
