MICHAEL BURGOINE, Shaun Fox and Lee Harris were the first three Rileys Amateur Qualifiers for the Ladbrokes UK Open.

The first of four weekends of knockouts for amateur players saw qualifying events held at Rileys Sports Bars in London Victoria, Norwich and Wolverhampton.

Bedford's Burgoine (pictured) is set to make his fourth UK Open appearance when he steps out at the Butlin's Minehead Resort on Friday March 1.

The 33-year-old has previously competed in the 2012, 2013 and 2018 UK Opens, and qualifies as an amateur for a fourth time after his success at London Victoria.

Fox, 29 from Harwich, will make his debut in the UK Open after winning through Saturday's Rileys Norwich knockout.

Gloucestershire's Harris, 45, is also set to make his first UK Open appearance after winning through the first Wolverhampton knockout.

A former fireman and ambulance worker, he previously played at the 2018 PDC Qualifying School and in four PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour events last year.

The Rileys Amateur Qualifiers continue on February 2-3 with a further six knockouts on the second of four weekends, with entries still available.

Entry will cost £8 including a drink (£3.50 cashback in Greenock), with entry available online at www.rileys.co.uk/uk-open or by calling the Rileys Head Office on 01908 887 463 if paying with a debit/credit card.

Entries close 48 hours before each event.

All qualifiers will be the best of seven legs. Play will commence at 1200 GMT for each qualifier, with registration from 0900-1130 GMT.

Qualifiers will receive a Rileys shirt to wear during the UK Open, as well as a £100 contribution towards their expenses.
