ANDERSON AND BURNETT WIN THROUGH TO NEXT WEEK'S WORLD OPEN PAIRS FINAL

Scotland's Stewart Anderson and Darren Burnett came through a tough semi-final clash against the all English partnership of twice former winners Mark Dawes and Jamie Chestney and now go forward to the final which will be shown on BBC Television on Monday 15th January.


The Scots won their first title in 2016 against countrymen Ronnie Duncan and Colin Walker 10-7, 10-6 and then in 2022 they denied Dawes and Chestney - who were the defending champions 9-6, 7-11, 2-0.


Today's semi final was another classic exchange between the teams.


In the first set the Scots led 8-3 with two ends to play but their English counterparts scored a double and held a set lie only to be thwarted by Burnett's last delivery rolling in for second shot to take first blood 8-6.


In the second set it was nip and tuck all the way.


The Scots led 4-0 after three ends, England scored a 1, 3 and 2 to go 6-4 ahead, the Scots responded with a treble to move 7-6 in front, England added a double then a single on the eighth end squared the match at 8-8 going into the deciding end, where a relieved Anderson and Burnett scored that vital single to secure their tilt at the title next week.
