FINAL COUNTDOWN: Katherine Rednall, who sealed her place World Indoor Bowls Championships final

Katherine Rednall moved one step closer to retaining her World Indoor Bowls Championship crown after easing her way into Wednesday’s semi-finals.

The Stowmarket-based ace overcame Marion Purcell in straight sets at Potters Resort to set up a last four encounter against 17-year-old Victoria Bilson who overcame Laura Hawryszko in straight sets.

Another victory would see 19-year-old Rednall once again challenging in the final where she could meet either Amy Stanton, who beat Julie Forrest or Laura Thomas who defeated last year’s beaten finalist Rebecca Field.

n Meanwhile, the former Stowmarket High School pupil was denied the chance of double title glory after she and partner Mervyn King suffered a mixed pairs quarter-final defeat to Julie Forrest and Alex Marshall on Friday.
