Harlequin Teamwear Stars Glen Durrant and Trina Gulliver MBE were in action on Day #7 at Lakeside, in the Men’s Quarter Final and Ladies Semi Final respectively.
‘Duzza’ took to the stage against Scott Waites, who had previously beaten Harlequin Icon Geert De Vos to reach the Last 8. Glen started in fantastic form, taking the match to 4-2, within a set of clinching victory. However it was the former Champion Scott Waites who fought back and went on to win 5-4. Despite Glen’s obvious disappointment it has been an absolutely fantastic year for Middlesborough’s man and we are sure he will have continued success for the year ahead having picked up BDO majors in 2015 including the World Masters and Finder Masters.
The evening session saw Trina Gulliver MBE face Holland’s Aileen De Graaf, who recently won the 2015 World Masters back in October. Trina started the game strongly with a number of big 100+ scores, and was clinical on her doubles, sealing the first set. Despite playing well in the second, it was Aileen who battled and won the second set. In the decider, Trina continued her fine form, and was eventual 2-1 winner in a tough game. The Golden Girl, who is in the hunt for her 10th World Championship, will face Deta Hedman in the final.
