In February 2016, Page entered the 2016 EBSA European Under-18 Snooker Championship as the number 13 seed, he managed to advance to the final where he was defeated 5–2 by fellow countryman Tyler Rees. Later that year in August, Page competed in the 2016 IBSF World Under-18 Snooker Championship where he once again advanced to the final and defeated the number 1 seed Yun Fung Tam 5–4. As a result, Page was awarded with a place in the qualifying rounds for the 2017 World Snooker Championship.
Page was awarded a wildcard entry in to the 2017 Welsh Open. In the first round he beat Jason Weston 4–3 on a re-spotted black. He then progressed to the third round by defeating John Astley by the same scoreline, before losing 4–0 to Judd Trump. In the qualifiers for the World Championship he was edged out 10–9 on the final pink by Martin O'Donnell in the first round. A fourth and fifth round showing in the two Q School events saw him finish fifth on the Order of Merit. A top four placing would have seen him join the professional tour. He entered Q School in May 2018 in a bid to win a full-time place on the snooker professional tour. He suffered a surprise defeat to Ben Hancorn in round 2 of event one.
