Harrow’s Alan Clyne is Runner up in Irish Open

Alan Clyne was runner-up to Alister Walker in the 2012 PSA $25K Irish Open this weekend. The Scottish No.1 (seen left with his Harrow Vapor racket) beat the No.2 seed Boran Golan to get into Saturday’s final against the World No. 18.

The tough semi-final that lasted almost 2 hours, must have taken it out of Alan as he lost the final 11-4 11-6 9-11 11-3 in 54 mins.

Scottish Juniors U19s Squad Finish on 20 Year High!

 An excellent result for Scotland’s squad in Portugal at the 2012 Under 19 European Team Championships.

The No.11 seeds included Harrow’s Dougie Kempsell, Rosie Allan and Kirsty Lobban as well as Jamie Henderson and Chris Leiper; and they performed brilliantly in the ‘Pool C’ matches beating most impresssively Germany, but also Holland and Poland. These wins secured them a quater-final match against the Czech Republic which they also won 3-0.

The team then went on to play England in the semi-final, where unfortunately they narrowly lost 2-1 (to the eventual winners) but none the less they were the only team to take a tie from England.

In the 3rd/4th place play off match they eventually lost out to France 2-1, but to finish 4th, having been seeded 11th, was a massive achievement and the best result for almost 25 years (since 1988).

A special mention must got to Harrow’s Dougie Kempsell who won 7 out of 7 matches in the Tournament – a fabulous achievement.
