Harrow’s Craig Valente-Wallace Finishes 4th top Junior in the Highland Open

Craig V-W

Craig’s first round qualifying match for a place finishing in the top 8 of the Highlands Senior B was against Glasgow’s Dougie Macmillan.

After a slow start to the match (going 2-0) down, Craig managed to regroup and win the tie break in the 3rd. And with momentum now behind him he also won a closely contested 4th game. However Dougie showed great class and managed to close the match out in the 5th.

After this narrow defeat, the man from Fife then went on to win his remaining 3 matches, Beating Martin Ross- 3-1, Dave Ireson 3-1 and in the final playoff match for placings he also beat Glasgow’s Ross Andrew 3-1.

All this meant that Craig finishing 9th overall and top 4 of the Scottish Juniors, which should be excellent preparation for his next tournament which is the Danish Junior Open in Copenhagen at the start of October (tough life as a top junior eh!!)

Congratulations Craig and good luck in Danishland!!
