Rattray Wins Rileys Greenock Qualifier
STEWART RATTRAY has qualified for the Coral UK Open after winning the Rileys Amateur Qualifier in Greenock on Sunday.
The 46-year-old joiner from Cowdenbeath came through the first of two qualifiers to be held at Rileys' Greenock Sports Bar to be the latest player to secure a spot in next month's UK Open Televised Finals.
Rattray has previously played in the UK Open twice during his time on the PDC circuit, playing in the 2004 and 2005 events when the Televised Finals were staged in Bolton.
A former winner of the Scottish National Championship, in 2010, Rattray defeated Dave Prins, Ricky Lewis and Colin Feeley in the latter stages before overcoming Stuart McGaulley 5-3 in the final.
The Rileys Amateur Qualifiers continue on Saturday February 13 with events in Sheffield and South Benfleet, before concluding with the remaining 11 knockouts from February 19-21.
Entry costs £6 per Qualifier - including a free drink voucher, or a £3 cashback voucher in Scotland - and players are permitted to compete in more than one of the knockouts.
Entries are being taken via www.rileys.co.uk/tournaments.
Full Terms & Conditions and Tournament Rules are also available at the Rileys website.
