Jackson Page: 15-year-old snooker prodigy's pro hopes & parents' pride

Jackson Page

As excuses for missing school go, playing in the third round of a ranking tournament against the world’s fourth best snooker player is a pretty good one.

On Thursday afternoon, Jackson Page was meant to be taking part in a physical education lesson at Ebbw Fawr Learning Community in Blaenau Gwent.

Instead, the 15-year-old from Ebbw Vale found himself in front of the television cameras at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, playing former world number one Judd Trump for a place in the last 16 of the Welsh Open.
