With results going almost to seeding we have reached the nitty gritty with the draw at 8.30 pm looking as follows;

Top half two matches to play involve Paul Drinkhall S1 to play Matt Ware with both players having to battle through, in particular Matt Ware who had to be razor sharp to get through against a very crisp Sam Walker 4-2, whilst Paul had also to be at his best to outpoint Will Maybanks 4-1.

Andrew Baggaley is looking strong and determined brushing aside Lee Neil 4-0 and to complete the top four in this half is Darius Knight who had a fairly comfortable journey to the semi final over Richard Andrews.
