Jimmy White and Ken Doherty will receive invitational tour cards for the next two years, World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn has revealed.

White, beaten six times in the world final, lost in this year’s World Championship qualifying event to relinquish his card after 37 years.

But Hearn said the popular left-hander and Doherty would be “welcomed back for the next two years as a minimum”.
