KEIGHLEY potter Chris Melling will be in Ultimate Pool action next Monday, in Week One of the Champions League alongside Cleve Thompson, Luke Gilbert and Gary Clarke.

Only the winner of that four-man group next week will reach the last-16 of the competition, with Melling winning the inaugural staging of the event back in 2021.

Melling’s fellow Keighley native Dad is in action in Week Two, with his group containing Neil Raybone, Stephen Maguire and Jez Graham.

Bradford native Karl Boyes does not play his group until Week 11, on March 20, where he will be taking on Shaun Storry, Callum Singleton and Cameron Tolley.

The 21-week event will be live on Monday nights from 18:30 GMT each week on ViaPlay Sports UK, and the Ultimate Pool App.
