Willem Mandigers set up a tie with fellow Dutchman Wesley Harms in the second round following an assured performance against England’s Paul Hogan. The 29-year-old made the last 16 twelve months ago, losing out to eventual quarter-finalist Wayne Warren.

Mandigers progressed with relative ease as Hogan failed to get out of first gear following his preliminary win over Wez Newton on Saturday evening. 

In the opening set of the match Mandigers had the crowd on the edge of their seats, a magnificent 160 checkout put him on the board. Hogan would have little in the way of response to the heavy Mandigers scoring, as he romped into a two-set lead. 

Mandigers confident demeanour remained as he tied up the final set in simple fashion, following the match he said: “I’ve played Wesley (Harms) before, we’ve beaten each other in competition. He’s a great player so I know my scoring has to be at its best, probably better than today.”
