Stewart Anderson and Greg Harlow into world bowls final

Scottish qualifier Stewart Anderson will face former runner-up Greg Harlow in Sunday's final of the World Indoor Bowls Championships in Norfolk.

The 24-year-old Anderson prevented an all-England final by defeating 20th seed Nick Brett 8-2 11-8.

Harlow, seeded five, beat compatriot Rob Paxton, who came through the qualifiers with Anderson, 9-8 8-4.

Anderson said: "I can't believe I am in the final of a world championship. It is unbelievable."

He has already accounted for fellow Scot and five-time champion Alex Marshall, 15th seed Mark McMahon and 18th seed John Price on his way to the final at Potters in Great Yarmouth.

And the defeated Brett believes Anderson, the world junior champion from Cumnock, could be a surprise winner of the title.

"I did not settle and he was sensational," said the Englishman. "He will be a force to be reckoned with tomorrow."

Anderson eased through the first set and it looked all over after he moved 7-2 ahead in the second before Brett threatened a fightback.

The second semi-final was a more topsy-turvy affair, with Harlow scoring four at the opening end before falling 8-4 behind then coming back to clinch the first set.

It was the greater experience of the 2006 runner-up from Ely that told in an equally tense second set.
