A close match to start our final day at the Preston Guildhall sees Ross Montgomery come from 6-4 behind to take the match 6-7, breaking the McKinstry throw twice in the processes.

Fallon Sherrock progresses into the final in style with a 5-0 win over Norfolk’s Roz Bulmer, registering a 91.65 in the process.
