England Reclaim European Junior Title

 

In a tense final of the European Junior U19 Team Squash Championships in Brussels, top seed England beat No2 seeds France 2/1 to reclaim the title they lost to Germany for the first time in 20 years last year.

 

Joe Lee, the 17-year-old from Walton-on-Thames in Surrey who was runner-up in the earlier individual event, faced France's Gregoire Marche in the opening rubber. Marche had lost to Lee in the individual quarter-finals, in straight games - but the 17-year-old from Aix-en-Provence fully tested the Englishman in the team opener, fighting back from 0/2 down to force a fifth game decider.

 

Lee, however, stuck to his task, and after 89 minutes secured a crucial 10-8, 9-7, 3-9, 6-9, 9-1 win which put the favourites ahead.

 

In the second match, France's 17-year-old Camille Serme, from Creteil, displayed the talents which took her to her second successive individual women's title only days before when she beat Victoria Lust, from Maulden in Bedfordshire, 9-1, 9-8, 9-3 in 36 minutes to level the tie.

 

There were wide smiles in the England camp when Adrian Waller, the British Junior champion from Enfield who failed to make the individual final as expected, made amends in the most decisive manner when he beat Frenchman Lucas Vauzelle 9-4, 9-1, 9-3 in 36 minutes to clinch the title for England.

 

In the play-off for third place, fourth seeds Netherlands beat defending champions Germany, the third seeds, 2/1.
