It was a home event for Duffy, who hails from the South Yorkshire city and in 2018 came within one qualifying match of becoming the first player from Sheffield to compete in the World Championship at the Crucible.

Duffy, a former professional on the Main Tour, recorded six victories in total and collected the top prize of £2,000.

The triumph sees the 29 year-old rise to ninth in the Challenge Tour rankings.

But after competing in less than half of the nine events so far this season, Duffy is a long way behind the top of the standings.

Brandon Sargeant, who lost to Duffy in the last four, David Grace, and Mitchell Mann will battle it out in the last Challenge Tour tournament in March to determine which two competitors will receive Main Tour cards.

As things stand, Sargeant boasts a points advantage of 850 over Grace, who in turn leads Mann by a narrow margin of just 50 points.

David Lilley, in fourth place in the pecking order, has an outside chance of forcing his way into contention as well – although will need to win event ten and hope other results go his way.
