FEN Potter Joe Perry beat Premier League champion Stuart Bingham to book his place in the Last 16 of the Dafabet PTC Grand Finals in Galway.

Perry, from Chatteris, rattled into a 3-0 lead against Bingham, who then 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.
