Matt Lee had a relatively smooth passage, winning 3-0 against Rob Garnett, whilst Ian Crook had a disappointing 3-1 reverse against Freddie Starr lookalike Eric McIntyre!

John Barber lost out narrowly in a five-setter against Michael Wright and Sharon Turner, in spite of nursing a neck injury, comfortably despatched Eric Jones 3-0 to make the final score on the night Blackburn Northern 8, Clitheroe 17.
