Northern Ireland bowler Martin McHugh progressed to the quarter-finals of the bowls singles on Wednesday.

The 41-year-old secured a 21-10 victory over Leonard Callus of Malta to secure a place in the last eight.

The women’s triples team saw off Papua New Guinea 26-15 in their final pool game but England’s win over Scotland means they are out of the competition.

McHugh’s only previous Commonwealth Games medal was his fours gold in 1998
