Chatteris potter Joe Perry beat Stuart Bingham to book his place in the last 16 of the Dafabet PTC Grand Finals in Galway.

Perry rattled into a 3-0 lead against Bingham, before the Premier League Champion clawed back two frames, to set up a thrilling conclusion to the match.

However Perry booked his place in the next round after dominating a tactical sixth frame.

“I felt I controlled the match, it was just hard to win the last frame,” said Perry. “I feel confident and my game is in good order.”

Perry now goes through to face Ben Woollaston, who came from 3-1 down to edge out Mark Williams.

They have played only once before, in the European PTC earlier this season when Perry won an exciting encounter 4-3.

Their showdown is scheduled for ‘High Noon’ today (Friday, March 15) and will be shown live on Eurosport across 70-plus countries.

There is also live broadcasting by China’s major sports channel CCTV5 and other Asia countries, reaching nearly 500 million potential viewers.
