Swail and Astley secure qualification spots

JOE SWAIL and Justin Astley booked their places in the main qualification draw after advancing through the very first stage of this year’s World Championship.

Swail will meet Pankaj Advani in the first round after he saw off the challenge of Les Dodd with a comfortable 5-1 win in the first semi-final of the pre-qualification stage.

Astley beat former professional Patrick Wallace 5-2 to ensure a first round clash with Paul Davison in the second semi-final.

Earlier in the day the quarter-final matches saw Swail knock out Stephen Rowlings with a 5-2 win and Astley ended the hopes of Paul Wykes by the same scoreline.
