PRIORY WIN CHALLENGE WITH OUTER KENT LEAGUE AND ELLIOT WINS LIGHTNING ROUND

By | Forum | No Comments

BUSY DAY OF FUN SQUASH BEFORE KENT OPEN CLASH
Despite the disappointment of John Rooney’s withdrawal from the Kent open semi-finals due to food poisoning, there was still plenty of entertaining squash on display during the day.
The Kent Open doubles was followed by a Challenge Match between the 
Outer Kent League and the SE London Priory League.
Star players Karim Samy, Wael Farag and Malaysian Asyraf Azan happily 
joined in the fun. Farag beat Azan and Samy beat Tim Garner, captain 
of Priory champions Dulwich, to record two wins for Outer Kent but the 
Priory boys had too much strength down the order and won 6-4.
The pros then joined a dozen Kent players for a Lightning Round which 
featured Azan and county junior Elliot Knight in the final.
Wael Farag enjoyed a long spell of court time, winning 20 points, before he was finally 
shifted from the showcourt by Azan. But the final result brought the 
biggest cheer of the day as 16-year-old Knight won the decider and the 
cash.(But he’s still moaning about the outcome of the Doubles!!)
Harford then joined The Mote’s Jonny Powell in a fun doubles match 
against Team Malaysia, with Azan and Ivan Yuen winning two games to 
one before top seed Alan Clyne took to the court for his semi final 
against Piedro Schweertman.
Aftre the PSA semi-finals the Kent SRA made a special presentation to Egytpian coach Alam Soliman to mark his 25 years of service to the county. Soli was surrounded by family and friends as he received an inscribed glass rose bowl and a bunch of flowers for his wife, Naima. 
All in all a great day of squash – and more fun today as the Finals Day programme kicks off with the Doubles final between Rodmersham teams Gary Clarke and Neil Baker against Steve Smith and David Rannard.
