KEIGHLEY potter Arfan Dad has scooped an Ultimate Pool professional title, just months after joining that circuit.

Alongside Ross Dunn and Kristian Phillips, he picked up the inaugural Ultimate Pool 3-Player Team Championship title over the weekend.

The trio beat Jake-Dylan Newlove, Dan Wells and Ameur Riad Abdelati 5-2 in the final.

The event was a straight knockout competition, with all matches the best of nine frames.

Players faced each other in 'single' frames, and were set to take on all three opponents on the other side (should the match go all nine frames).

Team Dad, as it was christened, beat Team Toms 5-2, Team Egan 5-1, Team Patel 5-3, Team Shepherd 5-2, Team Mitchell 5-3 and Team McNamara 5-3 before their final success.

After the win, Dad said: "Great way to end a long Easter weekend, couldn’t have asked for a better couple of lads to be partnered with."

The event was part of the Ultimate Pool Pro Series 3 & 4 weekend, and Dad made the last-32 of both, losing to Aaron Davies on each occasion, having beaten David McNamara and Jack Whelan in his two openers.

Dad's fellow Keighley pool player Chris Melling made it to the quarter-final in Pro Series 3, beating Josh Kane (7-6) and Christophe Lambert (7-3) to get there.

But in the last-eight, he bowed out 7-5 to Craig Waddingham.

In Pro Series 4, he went out straightaway. He was in the last-32 automatically as a seeded player, but bowed out there and then, surprisingly losing 7-3 to Eddie Barker.
