Jimmy White's hopes of making his first World Championship appearance in 12 years have ended.

The six-times world finalist, who made his last first-round appearance in 2006, lost his second qualifying round match to Joe Perry 10-5.

Perry goes on to face Mark Davis in the quest to appear at the Crucible. Davis was a crushing 10-0 conqueror of Michael Georgiou.

"Jimmy's got the better of me in the past," Perry said in an interview with World Snooker's Twitter account.

"He's still a great player. He's an absolute credit to the game. He's in his 50s and still competing against everyone he plays.

"You can't just turn up and win. You have to play good snooker to beat him."
