10-May, Final:
Snell stops Gawad

England's James Snell secured his first PSA title when he beat Egyptian Karim Abdel Gawad in the final.

The second seed from Devon comfortably reached the final without dropping a game - while Abdel Gawad, the fifth seed, made his breakthrough after upsetting top seed Christopher Gordon in the quarter-finals.

Underdog Gawad kept Snell on court for more than an hour - but the 21-year-old from Exeter ultimately prevailed in 63 minutes to earn his maiden Tour title.
