Scotland's Julie Forrest and Huntingdon star Nicky Brett cemented the remaining berth in the final of the Imagine Cruising World Indoor Bowls Mixed Pairs title decider a short time ago, and they will now meet defending champions Ceri Ann Glen and Stewart Anderson.
The Scotland/England combo battled out their semi-final this afternoon against the all-English pairing of Nicole Rogers and Wayne Willgress, and in a match that could have gone either way, Forrest and Brett did enough to get them over the finishing line and keep their title dream alive.
Both sets were tantalisingly poised at 6-5 on the penultimate end in favour of Forrest and Brett and they managed to avert the danger, scoring singles on the last end in each set to wrap up a 7-5, 7-5 victory.
Expectations are high for a great final, especially with all of the finalists recording previous victories in this event - Ceri Ann chalked up back to back wins with David Gourlay MBE in 2008 and '09, Stewart won with Julie in 2021 and Nicky was the champion in 2017 with Claire Johnston from Scotland and regained the title in 2020 with Marion Purcell from Wales.
