POOL ace Carl Rowe will be taking part in the five-event UK Pool Tour.

Carl, who is currently ranked 18th in the UK, is determined to finish inside the top 16 to book his place in the televised Premier League competition next season.

The event takes place at two venues in Blackpool, as well as Hinckley, Daventry and Harrogate. He will be competing for a chance to book his place in the British Lions team, which will travel to South Africa later this year.

He has already been ensured a place in the World Masters finals this summer, in which he reached the last 32 last year.

Carl’s quest is being backed by sponsors Sharon Halliday, the landlady at the Coach and Horses, and Gary Haw’s Taxis.

Carl, 35, lives in Fishtoft.
