Greg Harlow is through to the World Indoor Bowls Championships open singles final after beating David Gourlay in Norfolk.

England's Harlow, the champion in 2010, beat the Scot 9-5, 7-3.

Gourlay too is a former champion, having worn the crown in 1996.

Harlow will face compatriot Mark Dawes in tomorrow's final at Potters Leisure Resort in Great Yarmouth in England.

Dawes - the champion in 2018 - received a bye in the semi-finals after English duo Perry Martin and Wayne Willgress both tested positive for COVID-19 before their quarter-final, meaning they had to withdraw.

The winner of that match had been due to face Dawes.

Gourlay and Dawes have never before met at the World Indoor Bowls Championships.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic there are no overseas players at the tournament this year, which concludes with the open singles final tomorrow.
