Chatteris cueman Joe Perry was on the receiving end of a Ladbrokes World Grand Prix whitewash last week.

Perry suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Michael White in the second round of the tournament in Preston. He had beaten former world champion Graeme Dott 4-2 in his opening outing.

Perry was then a first-round casualty in the Manbetx Welsh Open earlier this week.

He was beaten 4-2 by Stephen Maguire at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.

Perry lost the first two frames before fighting back to level, but was then seen off by his Scottish opponent
