Ronan McCarthy has won the WEPF World Pool Championship title for the second time in three years after defeating Karl Sutton 11-9 in the final.

The County Down player came from behind to defeat his English opponent at the Grand Hotel in Blackpool.

The victory follows McCarthy's success in 2022 when he won his first world title at the age of 53.

McCarthy was also part of the Northern Ireland team which won two titles at last year's International Rules World Pool Championships in Morocco.
