Daniel Wells, the first young player to be awarded a scholarship in the late Paul Hunter's name, is seeded second for the knock-out phase of the IBSF World Under 21 Championship in Goa, India.

This is a huge international event won previously by Ken Doherty, Peter Ebdon and Ronnie O'Sullivan.

Daniel, 18, won all seven of his matches in the group stage and faces Ahmed Muanedi of Bahrain today in the last 32.

The Paul Hunter Scholarship was launched by the WPBSA following Paul's death at 27 from cancer last October.

Daniel has begun a year long programme during which he will receive coaching, media training and high quality practice at the superb World Snooker Academy in Sheffield.
