Thornaby Snooker Centre, Teesside (Sunday 26th November 2000)
There were twelve entries for the Northern area, who played down to
four qualifiers for the competition proper which rakes place in Lincoln
in February. The Preliminary round saw Daniel Beagrie post the highest
score of the day in his 310-181 victory over Daniel Britnell. No big
breaks were evident in any of the matches although Michael Donnelly
and John Hall managed to produce three of the day’s five 30+ breaks in
their encounter. John Hall had appeared to be well in control of this
match until back-to-back breaks of 37 and 34 by Donnelly gave him an
advantage which he managed to hold until the end.
In the qualifying round, all the winners of the preliminary round were
again successful, only Stephen Bingham mounting anything like a serious
challenge, although Jason Thomas ultimately managed to cope with
this without too much trouble.

The Midlands Area turned out four entries for the under-16
Championship, who played down to find a single qualifier for the
competition proper. Reigning champion, Peter Gamblin was outstanding
in both his matches and took that qualifying place with ease.
Woodside Snooker Club, Norwich
The eight entries from the Southern Area entitled the region to three
qualifying places. James Roberts and Calvin Daws took two of these
comfortably, but Nathan Mann only came through as the final qualifier
after a nervous encounter against Jamie Edwards which saw him win
by a mere 5 points!
Petto 110; Nathan Mann 178, Jamie Edwards 173.
