The Northern Ireland player was beaten 12-14 11-9 11-8 11-8 11-8 by Canada's Faazil Kassam in the first round proper.

Welsh champion Adam Robertson will play England's Gareth Herbert in the last 32 on Friday after beating Cameroon's Hubert Sylvain Noah Essomba in five games.

Robertson won 11-8 8-11 11-8 11-5 11-3 to set up the encounter with fifth-seed Herbert, who was given a bye into the second round.

Northern Ireland's Jonathan Cowan also needed five games to beat Asim Qureshi of Pakistan.

The ninth seed won 11-5 8-11 11-7 11-4 13-11 and will be his country's only representative in the next round after Andrew Dennison joined Strong on the sidelines.

Dennison lost 11-2 11-9 11-5 11-9 to Australia's Brett Clarke, who now plays Ryan Jenkins.

Scotland will also have just one player in the third round after Gavin Rumgay lost 11-9 11-13 7-11 11-8 3-11 5-11 to Nigeria's Nosiru Kazeem.
