Nicky Brett saw the defence of his World Indoor Championships singles title ended by a comprehensive quarter-final defeat this afternoon.
The Huntingdon IBC man was beaten 10-5, 10-2 by Scottish opponent Stewart Anderson at the Potters Resort, Hopton-on-Sea.
Brett admitted: “Stewart was great. He got in early and I found myself chasing shots.
“There were one or two things that didn’t quite go my way, and I would have liked to have played a bit better myself, but Stewart didn’t really let me.”
Brett, who works at RAF Wyton, is world number one and was top seed to defend his title.
