The report posted on the CA web site is inaccurate - this is what happened:
Reg Bamford beat Tim King in the quarters.
Stephen Mulliner was dispatched in the same half of the draw by Marcus Evans.
Reg then beat Marcus in a close fought match.
In the other half of the draw David Hopkins, after a 2 3/4 hour match beat Nelson Morrow after Nelson had a change of winning the 2nd games with a long jump shot at 13. Hoppy then won the third game 7-5.
Hoppy went on to play the semi against John Spiers and the final against Reg.
