Espada made it through to the main draw after overcoming Richard Whitwell in pre-qualifying.

Rugby’s Jamie Taylor earned the other qualifying spot after getting past Warwick Boat Club’s Gavin Henderson.

Simon Dickson, who beat Roger Federer as a junior, emerging teenager Mason Recci and Coventry League players Cameron Malik and Andy Norton complete the line-up.
