Former Crucible quarter-finalist Jamie Jones sealed his return to the World Snooker Tour, beating Michael Georgiou 4-0 in the final round of Q School Event Two in Sheffield.

Jones was suspended from the tour for 12 months in October 2018 for breaching betting regulations but is now set to return to the circuit.

Welshman Jones, a two-time ranking event semi-finalist, fired in a superb break of 132 on his way to the whitewash victory. Cypriot Georgiou will now face at least a year as an amateur, having already been eliminated from event three.

Oliver Lines ensured his immediate return to the circuit with a 4-2 win over Paul Davison in the final round. Lines, who reached the last 16 of the UK Championship in 2016, beat two-time ranking event winner Michael White 4-2 and Frenchman Brian Ochoiski 4-3 on his way to the final round.

English Amateur champion Ben Hancorn earned a two-year tour card with a 4-0 defeat of former professional Kuldesh Johal. It’s the first time 38-year-old Hancorn has made the jump to the professional ranks.

Zak Surety ended a four-year absence from the circuit, beating Leo Fernandez 4-1 to clinch his two-year tour card.
