Nick Brett has stormed into the semi-finals of the World Indoor Bowls Championship as he hunts a second singles crown.
The Huntingdon IBC and Warboys White Hart man – who lifted the title in 2016 - saw off six-time winner Alex Marshall in the second round yesterday (Thursday).
Brett came through a tie-break at the Potters Resort in Norfolk after winning the opening set 12-0 before Scotsman Marshall hit back 4-9 in the second set.
And Yaxley-based Brett then got the better of his pairs partner – Greg Harlow – in straight sets earlier today (Friday) in a quarter-final clash.
Brett produced a dominant display to take the opening set by a 9-3 margin against current world number one Harlow.

He now faces either 2014 champion Darren Burnett or qualifier Simon Skelton in the semi-finals tomorrow.
