Chatteris potter Joe Perry has booked his place in the last four of the Champion of Champions tournament.

Perry won Group 1 of the event in Coventry by beating four-time world champion John Higgins in a deciding frame.

The local man came from 5-4 down to triumph 6-5 and will now face the winner of Group 4 in a semi-final clash tomorrow.

Perry said “It was a good game and I’m absolutely delighted to beat a player of John’s class.

“I felt comfortable and played as well as I ever have against him. I stayed positive even when he threw some good stuff at me and kept believing I was playing well enough to win.

“A few little things went my way towards the end and I was able to capitalise on them.”
