Murphy Thrashes Wilson To Claim Ninth Ranking Title In Cardiff

Kleckers King At Challenge Tour Eight

Germany’s Lukas Kleckers boosted his hopes of regaining a tour card by winning Challenge Tour event eight in Tamworth.

Kleckers beat Tyler Rees 3-1 in the final to take the £2,000 top prize and he’s now up to second place in the Challenge Tour rankings. 

The leading player after the after ten events will be awarded a Tour Card, with the next eight going into a play-off event for a second card. Kleckers previously played on the pro tour from 2017 to 2019.

The next event is in Llanelli on February 15-16.
