NUMBER 7 SEED GOURLAY WINS IN STRAIGHT SETS AGAINST WELSH QUALIFIER DAN SALMON

David Gourlay MBE, delivered a straight sets knock-out blow to Welsh qualifier Dan Salmon in the opening day of Singles play on Day 6 of the Imagine Cruising World Indoor Championships at Potters Resorts, Hopton On Sea, winning 9-3, 7-6.


The first set was level at 3-3 after four ends, but Salmon failed to score again and the Scot wrapped up the set 9-3 with an end in hand.


The score line was tied once again at 3-3 in the second set, this time after five ends, and although both players each scored on two of the last four ends, a treble on the seventh followed by a match winning single of the last saw Gourlay take the result 7-6.
