ROYSTON'S Matt Coppen faces two county finals, having qualified for the county singles and county pairs final.
Alongside Peter Adams, Coppen breezed through to the pairs final following a comprehensive 20-8 victory over their Garston BC opponents.
Coppen then saw off Andrew Birden of St Albans-based Townsend BC, bouncing back from being 18-13 down and three points away from defeat.
The talented 17-year-old dug deep however, and fought back to claim an entertaining 21-18 triumph.
Don Sheriff reached the next round of his L&D singles bid with a convincing 21-1 victory over Barry Platten of the Letchworth-based Whitehorn BC.
However, Eileen Sheriff was less successful in her bid to reach the final of the Ladies Champion of Champions, slipping to 21-10 semi-final defeat to June Lonegan of Sele Farm BC.
