Welsh schoolboy Jackson Page lost 6-4 to Alexander Ursenbacher of Switzerland in the final of the under-21 event at snooker's European Championships in Cyprus.

The 15-year-old was aiming to add the under-21 title to the under-18 title he had already won at the championships.

He had beaten fellow Welshman, 18-year-old Tyler Rees in the semi-final.

Page is now in the senior men's event in Cyprus with a game against Bulgaria's Viktor Iliev on Monday.

In February Page reached the third round of the Welsh Open in Cardiff before losing to Judd Trump.
