Kirsty Gilmour WSKirsty Gilmour and Kieran Merrilees got Scotland’s big day at the badminton tournament off to a solid start when they booked their places in the last 16 of the singles events at Glasgow 2014.

Merrilees, the eighth seed, defeated Victor Odera Munga 21-6 21-7 to keep on course for a quarter-final with GB team-mate Rajiv Ouseph, the silver medallist at the 2010 Games.

Second women’s seed Gilmour, who had a first-round bye, defeated Australia’s Verdet Kessler 21-14 21-5 and earned herself a last 16 clash tomorrow with Yeldi Louison of Mauritius, with sixth seed Michelle Chan on course to meet her again in the quarter-finals after the New Zealander pushing her hard in the team event.

With Paul Van Rietvelde and Jillie Cooper the only Scotland casualties so far, the rest of the squad are in action today.

But the match of the day will come late in the evening session when Gilmour and Imogen Bankier take on England’s fourth seeds Gabby Adcock and Lauren Smith.

picture 14  Kieran MerrilessGlasgow's Kieran Merrilees strolled through to the second round of the men's singles as the individual events in the badminton competition at the Commonwealth Games go under way today.

The Scotland No.1, who helped his team reach the last eight of the team event, defeated 43-year-old Norfolk Islander Richard Cribb 21-4 21-3 in just 20 minutes to earn a second-round test tomorrow against either Ashley Hutchings of Jersey or Victor Munga of Kenya.

The seventh seed's first real test should come if he reaches the quarter-finals where England third seed and GB training partner Rajiv Ouseph, the 2010 silver medallist, should be waiting.

But Scotland suffered their first casualty of the individual event when Paul Van Rietvelde and Jillie Cooper fell in the mixed doubles first round.They lost the first game 21-13 to Adrian Liu and Michelle Li but looked like they were going to level the contest when they led 17-12 and 18-15 in the second.


Although the Canadians caught up the Scotland pair still had two game points before Liu and Li took the contest 24-22 on their second match point.
