HOLLAND AND TEMPLE-MURRAY
CLAIM TOP HONOURS IN SURREY
Surrey Sports Park and Wimbledon Racquets & Fitness Club
hosted the Tecnifibre English Junior Championships this past
weekend, welcoming 250 of England’s finest young squash
players. The U19 and U15 were played out in Surrey Sports
Park while Wimbledon Racquets & Fitness club hosted the U13
and U17 players.
Oliver Holland (Nottinghamshire) was victorious in
his last big junior tournament as he added the Boys Under 19
trophy to the British Junior Championship title he won
earlier in the season, making him a double champion in his
last year of junior squash. Holland faced Richie Fallows
(Essex) in the final which turned out to be a tremendous
hard fought 70 minute battle that Holland edged 3-2.
Victoria Temple-Murray (Devon) successfully defended her
Girls Under 19 Crown, she was rarely troubled throughout the
weekend until she came up against Nada El Kalaawy (Surrey)
in the final. Temple-Murray took a two game advantage with a
16-14 win in the second game only for El Kalaawy to peg one
back, in the fourth game the players were level at 4-4 until
Temple-Murray raced ahead into an 8-4 lead, a lead that was
just too far for El Kalaawy to catch as Temple-Murray stayed
focused and eventually claimed the game 11-8 to retain her
The Boys Under 17s saw 5/8 seed Josh Turmel (Suffolk) reach
his first major final after he defeated the top seed Jack
Cooper (Yorkshire) 3-0 in the quarter finals. He faced the
second seed and last year’s U15 champion Patrick Rooney
(Merseyside) in the final and made a great start going 2-0
up. Rooney came out fighting in the third and managed to up
the pace, putting pressure on Turmel who couldn’t get a hold
on the game, Rooney claimed it and carried on in the same
fashion to take the fourth 11-1 which levelled the match
2-2. Turmel gave a better account in the fifth as both
players took turns to take a point until the score reached
6-6, at this point Rooney started to pull away and never
looked back as he took the game 11-6 and the title to add to
his previous EJC U13 and U15 titles.
The Girls Under 17 final was a similar story as 5/8 seed
Alison Thomson (Surrey) defeated the favourite Lucy Beecroft
(Northumbria) 3-1 in the semi finals to set up a clash
against the second seed Lily Taylor (Leicestershire).
Both girls were contesting their first major domestic final
and played some fantastic attacking squash, it was to be
Taylor’s day as she won in convincing fashion, 3-0 in 26
minutes to claim her first national title.
Charlie Lee (Surrey), son of former England
International Danny Lee and younger brother of current
professional Joe Lee carried on the family’s success as he
won his first major title in the Boys Under 15s. 5/8 seed
Lee beat top seed Robbie Keefe (Hampshire) 3-0 in the semi
finals to set up a clash against the number 2 seed Kyle
Finch (Hampshire). Lee took the first game without too much
trouble from Finch only for the roles to be reversed the
following game as Finch levelled 1-1. From then on in both
players stepped up a gear and neither player gave too much
away as they stayed with each other point for point, Lee
however took the crucial points that mattered at the end of
each game to take a 3-1 victory in 44 minutes.
Lucy Turmel (Suffolk) made her way into her first major
final just as her brother Josh did, she beat the second seed
Anoushka Wooller (Middlesex) in the semi finals 3-0 and
found herself facing the top seed Grace Gear
(Hertfordshire). Gear came out of the blocks quickly and
didn’t give Turmel much hope in the first game, racing to
11-2 lead and taking the early advantage. Turmel looked more
settled in the second and started to play the squash that
got her into the final as she took the second and third
games 11-6. Gear turned the tables again as she raced into a
9-1 lead in the fourth, despite a great effort from Turmel
to get back to 7-9 she couldn’t stop Gear from taking the
game 11-7 to level the match at 2-2. The final game was
close, but it was Gear who closed it 11-7 to take title.
Elise Lazarus (Essex) continued her domination in the
Girls Under 13’s as she successfully defended her crown,
Lazarus came up against 3/4 seed Karina Tyma (Avon) who
defeated the second seed Ellen Cooper (Yorkshire) 3-2 in the
semi finals. Tyma competed well in the first game, fighting
back from 3-7 down to go 8-7 up but just couldn’t finish it,
Lazarus stayed strong to reclaim the lead and took the first
game 11-9. From then on Lazarus turned up the heat and raced
through the next two games 11-2 and 11-3 to win 3-0 in 15
minutes. Lazarus has now done the ‘double double’ by
claiming both British and English U13 titles in the past two
The Boys Under 13s saw 9 year old Sam Todd (Yorkshire) have
a great run to the final as he beat the number 2 seed
Richard Hall (Cheshire) 3-0 in the quarter finals and the
3/4 seed Billy Beecroft (Suffolk) 3-1 in the semi finals. He
faced the top seed and favourite Jared Carter
(Hampshire) in the final who was in fine form having not
dropped a game throughout the previous rounds. Todd started
well and took the first 11-6 only for Carter to take a close
second 12-10. Every point was well contested with each
player taking turns to take a game to take it into the
fifth. 11-7 the final game finished after 42 minutes with
Carter the victor to claim his first national title after a

each until 6-all, Lee then stepped up a gear to take the
next 5 points and the game.
Lee, full of confidence carried on in the same fashion and
from 3-3 once again plowed through to take the second game
11-3. Keefe came out fighting in the third and matched Lee
point for point until once again they levelled at 6-6, Keefe
couldnt keep it up though as Lee raced on, taking the game
11-6 and the match 3-0.

Turmel just staying slightly ahead each game and staying
focused to take a 3-0 victory.
battle between 5/8 seed Josh Turmel and 9/16 Jack
Bearpark for a place in the final was a marathon 65 minute
event with Jack taking the first two games only to see Josh
turn it around and take the match 7/11, 7/11, 11/7, 11/9,
The second semi-final was a straight games win for

title as she took 21 minutes to secure a 3-0 victory against

for point early on until 4-4 then Temple Murray moved up a
gear and in each game once she got infront she closed it
A professional job from the top seed who will now face the
number 2 seed Nada El Kalaawy in the Final.
El Kalaawy's semi final on paper is a 3-0 victory, but the
scoreline of 45 minutes tells what a close affair it was.
Anna Kimberley matched El Kalaawy all the way through but
couldnt quite take the points that counted when the games
reached the business end.
El Kalaawy now steps into her first final and will look to
cause an upset against the defending champ.
Oliver Holland bt Ashley Davies 6-11, 11-9, 11-6,
Oliver Holland booked a place in the final after a gruelling
3-1 victory over Ashley Davies which lasted 71 minutes.
Davies took the first game 11-6 but at 9-9 in the second it
was Holland who crucially levelled to make it 1-1.
The last two games were very tight, with long patient
rallies and excellent retrieving. It was to be Holland who
put an end to Davies great run through this tournament and
give himself a chance to win one last big junior title
before he signs off his junior career.
Richie Fallows bt Matt Sidaway 7-11, 11-9, 8-11, 6-11
This match was almost identical to the other semi final in
that the higher seed was put under pressure first by going a
game down to then come back and win a crucial second game
11-9 to tie the scores.
The third game was an important one here and Fallows took an
early advantage going 6-3 up only for Sidaway to battle back
to take a 7-6 lead.
Fallows however kept pushing and it was he who closed the
game out 11-8 and carried that momentum with him in the
fourth game, at 4-4 he started to edge away and eventually
clinched it 11-6 after 55 minutes.

Friday, Day ONE
@ Surrey Sports Park
Day one at Surrey Sports Park saw the first two rounds
completed for each division. The Boys Under 15’s kicked off
the day’s play and there was little upset as the top seeds
all progressed safely.
Ridge (Yorkshire) was the only non seed to come through
into the last 16 with a 3-1 victory over 9/16 Todd Bennett
then came up against last year’s U13 Champion Curtis
Malik (Sussex) who proved to be one step too far as
Malik took it 3-0.
The second round seemed to be business as usual for the top
seeds as all 8 progressed without too much fuss. The longest
match being Danial Bray (Yorkshire) who took on 3/4 seed
Mark Richmond (Warwickshire), Bray took the 3rd game 14-12
after Richmond had gone 2-0 up and pushed him again in the
fourth but Richmond stayed focused and took it 11-9 to win
3-1 and move into tomorrow’s Quarter Finals.
seed Rawan El Kalaawy (Surrey) has took the Girls
Under 15’s by storm today, after a comfortable first round
win she took on the 3/4 seed Amber Peacey (Glos). El Kalaawy
took the first 11-4, then fought hard to take the second
13-11, Peacey battled back to win the third 11-7 but
couldn’t carry that momentum on as El Kalaawy took the
fourth 11-6 to move into the Quarter Finals and a date with
5/8 seed Libby Corke (Warwickshire). The rest of the top 8
progressed through to the next round with the majority
In the Girls Under 19’s, the top 4 seeds moved into the
quarter finals, Victoria Temple Murray (Devon) and
Nada El Kalaawy (Surrey) eased their way through with
3-0 victories, as did Jess Dixon (Yorkshire) and Anna
Kimberley (Essex). Jess Davies (Cheshire) caused the
upset of this category, the 9/16 seed got passed a tricky
first round match with Eleanor Lake (Glos) 3-1 before going
into the second round against the 5/8 seed Georgie Ingham
(Surrey). Ingham competed well but couldn’t stop Davis as
she won in straight games to set up a Quarter Final clash
with 3/4 seed Jess Dixon (Yorkshire).
first round of the Boys Under 19 was relatively incident
free although unseeded James Evans (Kent) put up a great
fight against 5/8 Taminder Gata Aura (Yorkshire). Gata Aura
took the first game then each player took turns to take a
game until they headed into the 5th, 60 minutes later and it
was Gata Aura who prevailed. He then came up against an in
form George Parker (Leicestershire) who was a
dangerous 9/16 seed to meet in the second round.
Parker was fresh from having a walkover earlier in the day
and took little time in taking the game to Gata Aura, who
couldn’t quite impose himself. Parker pushed on and took the
game 3-0 in 30 minutes.
now faces 2nd seed Richie Fallows in the Quarters.
Ashley Davies (Derbyshire) also made an impact in his
first major domestic tournament since his recovery from
Davies similar to Parker had a walkover in the first round
and had fresh legs against 5/8 Angus Gillams
(Hertfordshire). Each game was tight, with Gillams taking
the first advantage going 2-1 up and getting to match ball.
Davies stayed focused and fought back to a tie break and
took game ball to take it into the fifth.
Another close game followed with Davies edging it 11-6, he
now looks forward to facing 3/4 Lyell Fuller (Devon)
who is in good form after getting through his second round
with a 3-0 win over 9/16 Joe Brooke (Oxfordshire).

|Day ONE @ Wimbledon
The Boys Under 13 category saw the longest match of the day
and with it one of the biggest upsets as unseeded Jack
Mitterer (Kent) defeated 5/8 seed Ben Cross (Durham &
Cleveland) 3-1 in 87 minutes.
It was however due to a blood injury break which may or may
not have had a bearing on the end result. Mitterer then came
up against 9/16 Max Forster and took that 3-0 to set up a
quarter final match against 3/4 Oscar Khoo
William King (Yorkshire) also had a good first round
result as he defeated 5/8 Perry Malik (Sussex) 3-2 in 34
minutes, he then faced an in form Nathan Mead (Warwickshire)
who had previously beaten 9/16 Tom Lammonby (Devon).
Mead was too strong and took it 3-1, he now faces the other
3/4 seed Billy Beecroft (Suffolk). The two top seeds
progressed without too much trouble, although Brando Sodi
(Middlesex) pushed 2nd seed Richard Hall in their first
round match, Hall taking it 11-9 11-8 10-12 11-4 in 29m.
All of the Girls Under 13 top 8 seeds got through to the
quarter finals bar one as 9/16 Katie Cox (Norfolk)
got through a tough 3-2 against 5/8 Katie Wells
(Lincolnshire). As the game went into the 5th, it came down
to who could keep their nerve as the girls took it into a
tie break at 10-10. Cox managed to take it with a 15-13 win.
Lucy Beecroft (Northumbria), the top seed in the
Girls Under 17 probably had a tougher first match than she
would have liked as 9/16 Mari Taylor (Leicestershire)
pushed her all the way into a fifth set. Beecroft stayed
strong when she needed too though as won the last set 11-4
after 36 minutes.
Kace Bartley (Surrey) caused an upset as she defeated
Rhianne O’Donnell (Somerset) 3-2 in 35 minutes. A first game
that was won 15-13 by Bartley set the tone for the match as
both players battled hard, O’Donnell took a 2-1 lead in
games but couldn’t quite see it out as Bartley came back
strong to clinch it 11-7 in the fifth.
Chloe Harrison (Lancashire) was another player who
took out a top seed in the second round as she beat Isabel
Maloney (Bucks) in straight games, she now gets to test
herself against the top seed Beecroft in the quarters.
The Boys Under 17 also had a few shocks, unseeded Jagpal
Sehmbi (Essex) had a fantastic result against 3/4 seed
James Blythe (Derbyshire). Straight games in 30 minutes took
Sehmbi into the second round to face 9/16 Jack Bearpark
Sehmbi couldn’t keep his run going though as Bearpark fought
hard to take a 3-1 victory. Bearpark now moves on to face
5/8 Ben Windle (Surrey).
9/16 Bradley Masters (Kent) played well to put
himself in the quarters after a 3-1 victory over 3/4 Adam
Turner (Derbyshire) in 56 minutes, he will now face 5/8
George Willis (Northants) who had an easier route
through as he took out Chris Wiggins (Northumbria) in
Tecnifibre English Junior Championships returns to
Surrey this weekend where the nation’s best young squash
players will fight to become an English Champion.
Wimbledon Racquets & Fitness Club will host all Under 13 and
Under 17 matches while the Under 15 and Under 19 matches
will be played at Surrey Sports Park.
250 players will be in action from 01-3 March, each
one competing for the right to be named England’s best.
Oliver Holland (Nottingham) will be looking to finish
his junior career on a high as he heads into this tournament
as the hot favourite. The current U19 British Champion has
never won an English title and will no doubt want to collect
this one at his last attempt. He is likely to face stiff
competition from last year’s U17 Champion Richie Fallows
(Essex) along with two time English U17 Champion Matt
Temple Murray (Devon) returns as defending Champion in
the Girls U19 event and will be looking to secure her third
title in three years. Nada El Kalaawy (Surrey) is
aiming to cause an upset as she attempts to claim her first
English title, as is Anna Kimberley (Essex) and
Jess Dixon (Yorkshire).
Boys U17 seedings are topped by Jack Cooper
(Yorkshire) and last year’s U15 Champion Patrick Rooney
(Merseyside). James Blythe (Derbyshire) and Adam
Turner (Derbyshire) will be looking to cause an impact
as this title appears to be heading to the north.
Lucy Beecroft (Northumbria) will attempt to win her
second English title as she heads the seedings in the Girls
U17 event, Lily Taylor (Leicestershire) is seeded
second in a strong field that also includes current British
U17 Champion Georgina Kennedy (Kent) as a 3/4 seed.
Robbie Keefe (Hampshire) is favourite for the Boys
U15 title and if seedings go to plan we could see an all
Hampshire final with Kyle Finch (Hampshire) second
seed. Keefe won the U13 title two years ago while Finch will
be looking to claim his first major honour.
Grace Gear (Hertfordshire) heads the seedings in the
Girls U15 and will be looking to claim her second English
title with her main threat coming from Anoushka Wooller
Elise Lazarus (Essex) is presently dominating the
Girls U13 division, Lazarus is the current British U13
Champion and is back to defend the English U13 crown she won
Jared Carter (Hampshire) is hoping to claim his first
title after narrowly missing out in the British U13 final,
hoping to challenge him will be Richard Hall

finals schedule for midday on Sunday 3 March. All spectators
