Stuart Carrington (born May 14, 1990 in Grimsby , United Kingdom ) is an English snooker player .


Already in 2009 he was about to qualify for the Snooker Main Tour via the EASB Pro Ticket Tour . In the end, however, he was only second behind Jimmy Robertson and missed the jump on the professional tour for the time being.

In 2011 he was finally able to qualify for the Main Tour through the Q School , after he had already competed as an amateur in some tournaments of the Players Tour Championship in the preseason and had made it into the round of 32 twice. He also beat some players from the top regions of the world rankings, such as Martin Gould or Mark King .

His 2011/12 debut season , however, was not very positive. Only in the qualification for the German Masters 2012 and the PTC tournament Warsaw Classic 2011 did he win in his opening game, in all other tournaments he was eliminated in his first match. As a result, he lost his professional status at the end of the season.

In April 2013 Carrington won one of the three finals of the EBSA Qualifying Tour and thus received a two-year tour ticket for the 2013/14 and 2014/15 snooker seasons . This time he started his professional career with a round of 16 at the Bulgarian Open and some minor successes at other PTC tournaments. At the International Championship he reached the round of 32 for the first time in a world ranking tournament, a result that he was then able to repeat at the UK Championship . At the end of the season he was once again very successful at the World Cup and only missed one match in the main field of the 32 best players after winning three rounds. At the beginning of the following season, he also narrowly missed the main tournament twice at the Shanghai Masters and the Australian Open . At the Ruhr Open and the Gdynia Open , however, he was able to reach a PTC round of 16 two more times in his career, including a 4-0 win over Mark Allen in Mülheim. After he only managed to get into the main tournament once again at the Indian Open , the Englishman was only 69th in the world rankings before the world championship , which would not have been enough to stay on the tour. There he achieved three qualifying wins, including against Peter Ebdon . This was the first time he was allowed to appear in the Crucible Theater , where he lost 6:10 to Judd Trump . This achievement brought him the necessary improvement by 6 places in the ranking, which meant another professional season for him.

The third Main Tour season in a row began with two opening defeats in the first two world rankings. At the Paul Hunter Classic 2015 , he then made it to the quarter-finals at a PTC tournament for the first time with victories over Matthew Stevens and Mark Davis . At the Bulgarian Open he was in the round of 16. At the German Masters he reached the main tournament with a victory over Ronnie O'Sullivan . With further first round victories, he made the spot landing in 64th place in the ranking at the end of the season and stayed on the Main Tour. In the 2016/17 season he played his way into the main tournament at the Shanghai Masters through three qualifying rounds and the wildcard round and, after a 5: 4 over Joe Perry, was also in the first sixteen in a full ranking tournament. At the Welsh Open 2017 he reached the quarterfinals and lost to Stuart Bingham . In the last qualifying game of the World Cup , he defeated Mark Williams and moved into the main round.
