They were evenly-poised when Steve Hollick was informed that his match was the decider.

Trailing 2-0, Steve managed to alter the tempo of the match and pulled off a comeback that ensured the win.

Earlier, Rick Walters had recorded a 3-1 victory, after he countered his opponent who was continually trying to wrong-foot him.

Gary Bramwell lost 3-0 to a similar style of player, who could land the ball tight in the front corners from any position and from any shot.

Steve Coates’ game went to five sets, in an exhausting 145 points and ended 2-3.

Howard Pearson levelled the match as he won his affair, 3-2.

His game was a very even contest and there were times when he was definitely not in control, but he got ahead in the crucial final game before Hollick’s heroics.
