Teenage snooker star Ash Carty was beaten by the former world number one Judd Trump in the Bulgarian Open last weekend.
The 19-year-old, who hails from Thurcroft but has learned his trade in Worksop at North Notts Arena, qualified for the first round proper of the event in Sofia.
Still a member of the amateur ranks, Carty had to battle through two qualifying rounds in order to meet Trump.
First up was Welshman Jamie Rhys Clarke, who fell to a 4-3 defeat in the second qualifying round.
Next, Carty dispatched compatriot John Parkin 4-2, earning a place in the first round proper.
But Trump was too good for the teenager, beating him 4-0.
The world number six then went on to lose to Michael Wasley in the last 16.
Carty is a star of the Worksop Snooker League and has been coached locally by Darren Presgrave.
