England scored a clean sweep of all three titles in the 2015 European Junior U19 Squash Championships at the Sports Center Hector in the Czech Republic capital Prague.

In the women's final, Georgina Kennedy denied Belgian favourite Tinne Gilis the chance to join 2014 champion Nele Gilis as the only pair of sisters to win the title. Second seed Kennedy, from Bexley in Kent, defeated Gilis junior 11-8, 11-3, 11-9 to become the sixth English women's winner in the last seven years.

It was Parker and Kennedy who steered England to success in the team competition, with a 2/0 victory in the final over Finland, the fourth seeds celebrating their first appearance in the final since 1992. England have now held the title unopposed for six years since 2010.

Lower in the play-offs, Ireland finished in fifth place to mark their highest-ever finish in the championships.
