Josh Taylor bt Nick Mulvey 11/7 11/8 5/11 11/3

"Was great to get a win in front of a home crowd tonight. I felt the first game was really important for me to settle and get some quality into what I was doing. After that the momentum really help. Bit of a blip in me in the third after he started to recover from the slip in the second. But finished strong. Can't wait till tomorrow now, another challenge and chance to get the home crowd cheering!" - Josh Taylor


Courtney West by Dec Mckeever 3-1 5/11, 11/6, 11/7, 11/5

"I had no idea who he was or how he played before I came. I found him quite awkward, he hit it hard and didn't let me settle early. I think he tired though and I found my length and the match became progressively easier"  - Courtney West 


Phil Nightingale bt Jak Garratt 3-0 11/4, 11/3, 11/9 

"I'm feeling good, I have had a long summer sprinkled with a couple of tournaments. This is my first event back and I'm feeling good. Great to have another tournament in England and I really love coming to Nottingham. Tonight was quite straight forward but Jak gave everything he had, it was a fantastic effort from him!" - Phil Nightingale


David Wardle bt Chris Abel 3-0 11/2, 11/3, 11/6

"I have seen Chris play a lot at the club so I knew what to expect. I have a had a good summers training and managed to play well today. He played well in the first few points in each game but I managed to pull away through the middle of each game. It was a good game and hopefully I can produce more of the same tomorrow!" - Dave Wardle


Julian Tomlinson bt Nick Hargreaves 3-0 11/7 11/5 8/11 11/5

"Won 3-1 v Nick Hargreaves, a really tough match against a local player who was fit and fast and liked to get in the volley. I really had to concentrate to beat him and had to work hard as we had some tough rallies. I'm looking forward to playing tomorrow!" - Julian Tomlinson


Jonathon Geekie bt Luke Stewart 3-2 13/11 11/8 10/12 7/11 11/8

"Relieved to have won that in the end! Not sure how many lucky shots i was on the recieving end there. Aftert being 2-0, 8-5 up up I lost a bit of focus and let Luke back into the game. Fair play to him he d

ug in and kept with it and managed to force it to 5. Went over badly on my ankle in the 4th which was a bit of a blessing in disguise as it forced me to straighten up and slow the pace down which worked for me. Now to up my game tomorrow against Phil and can't give him and cheeky points!" Jonathon Geekie
