He went out 6-2 to Bolton's Tony Knowles in the semi-finals of the Langs Supreme Scottish Masters Championship in Glasgow. Thorburn said: "I thought I could out- pot him and that was a mistake." Knowles made a clearance of 41 and a break of 83 to race to a 2-0 lead. Thorburn's only successes came in the third and penultimate frame.  For details of bargain price train travel see BRITISH RAIL Index p125
