THE Fen Potter Joe Perry beat two former world champions at the Welsh Open last week, but was knocked out at the quarter-final stage by world No. 3 Shaun Murphy.
Perry, who was born in Wisbech and lives in Chatteris, demolished 2002 world champion Peter Ebdon 5-1 in the second round.
He then compiled back-to-back breaks of 107 and 115 in a 5-2 victory over Stuart Bingham to earn a spot in the quarter-finals.
But the in-form Murphy proved too strong and claimed a 5-0 win.
World No. 13 Perry earlier beat 1991 world champion John Parrott 5-2 in the first round of the tournament, which was held in Newport.
Perry’s Cambridge-based practise partner, defending champion Neil Robertson, was beaten 5-3 by Ali Carter in the third round.
