Jordan Brown has secured a Crucible debut with a victory over Ryan Day in the final round of World Snooker Championship qualifiers.

The Antrim man beat Ryan Day of Wales by 10-frames to 6 at the English Institute of Sport.

Brown had trailed the three-time Crucible quarter-finalist 3-1 at one stage of the afternoon session.

However, the 32-year old won three frames in a row to take a 5-4 lead into the evening session.

 

Despite a brief resurgence from Day, Brown held his nerve - winning four frames on the spin - to complete the victory over the Welshman.

Brown follows in the wake of the likes of Alex Higgins and becomes the ninth player from Northern Ireland to play in the World Snooker Championships.

After the likes of Ken Doherty and Fergal O'Brien fell by the wayside in the qualifiers, Brown and Mark Allen will be the only Irish players involved at the Crucible next week.

Experience wasn't enough to secure a last-32 spot for 2006 champion Graeme Dott. The Scot lost 10-6 to Martin Gould.

2015 quarter-finalist Anthony McGill breezed past Sam Baird 10-1.

Matthew Stevens was a 10-5 victor over Ricky Walden. And Thepchaiya Un-Nooh beat Liam Highfield by 10-frames to 7.
