KEIGHLEY duo Arfan Dad and Chris Melling were unable to cause any shockwaves in the fifth edition of the World Rules Pool Tour (WRPT).

Having come agonisingly close to two European titles on the same weekend in late July/early August, Dad (pictured) won the fourth WRPT title event of the season by beating the talented Josh Kane 8-7 in a thriller in November.

He was unable to repeat that maiden WRPT victory this time round though at the Mercure Hotel in Daventry.

The potter finished joint 17th after winning two out of three matches.

Dad gained four points by capturing 17 of the 29 frames (59 per cent) he played at the tournament.

Entering at the round two stage, he beat Brett Wild 7-2 before getting past Steve Petty 7-3 soon after.

However, round four proved a step too far as Englishman Lee Kendall came through their clash 7-3.

Meanwhile, former two-time world champion Melling was knocked out in the second round, losing narrowly 7-6 to Chris Day.

The 42-year-old still earned a point though by finishing in joint 65th place.

Kendall went on to reach the quarters, beating Jack Whelan 7-6 before losing out to Declan Brennan.

In the end, Shaun Chipperfield collected the trophy thanks to a 8-6 victory in the final against Clint l'Anson.
