Callum won the top group to extend his advantage over Lewis Wilson to four points.

The leader has been in excellent form after his first Cuestars south of England under-21 bronze tour tournament win last year.

Young prospect Billy Reid increased his highest break to six and newcomer Dean Russell made a personal best 10 break.

World Snooker coach Tim Dunkley runs sessions for under-19s from 4.30pm to 6.30pm every Wednesday.

He said: ‘The south coast has become a hotbed for junior snooker and I’m keen to help the next generation progress to regional and national events.’
