Thornaby Snooker Centre, Teesside (Sunday 19th November 2000)
Robin Wilson, Michael Donnelly
Defending Champion, Robin Wilson was the star of the Northern Area
qualifiers as he brushed aside the challenges of Steven Hassack and
John Hall to win through with ominous ease. Of the other qualifiers, 14
year-old Michael Donnelly looked like making an early exit when he
trailed Riley’s team-mate Danny Beagrie by almost 50 points entering
the closing minutes. However, his last two visits produced breaks of 34
and 18, which were just enough to edge him 7 points ahead at the bell.
His subsequent qualifying match against Stephen Bingham was more
comfortable than the 266-231 scoreline would suggest, Donnelly easing
up considerably at the end.
That perennial competitor, Billy Bousfield, was the only player required
to undertake three matches, but came through them all to take his place
in the line-up for the final stages in Lincoln. Darren Clarke will make up
the four representatives from Teesside. He easily disposed of his
opposition on the day in impressive fashion.

The Maltings Q Club, Kings Lynn (Saturday 10th December 2000)
There were no big surprises in the Southern Area as Jimmy Chambers
and Matthew Sutton both booked their places for the final stages.
Chambers, produced a couple of fifty breaks in his two heats, and
Sutton also had a string of good breaks to ease his way past his two
opponents. Calvin Daws came through as the third qualifier from the
region, although he was made to work hard by James Roberts. Daws
edging home with a narrow 6 point victory in their deciding match.
