David Ryan wins U19 Nordic Open

“Fantastic display from David to win the Nordic Junior Open U19. He played impeccable almost faultless squash leaving the young Israeli star Daniel Poleshchuk no.1 seed without any idea of how to respond. Daniel is a super squash player with all the crowd pleasing shots. David’s strategy was simple, to give him no opportunity to attack, anytime Daniel had a go David was alert and dealt with it sending the ball back right down the wall. So tight that on a number of occasions even a player of Daniel’s undoubted quality could even not return the ball – scraping the plaster and fresh air off the wall. David played this final perfectly and Daniel needs to reflect and learn that there are at least two ways to play squash. David has stepped up to U19 squash and it looks like he will be the dominant player while he is eligible, we should be very proud of his and his dad, Eoin’s achievements ” written by Henry Gillanders

There were  13 other Irish players who travelled to the Nordic Junior open with many achieving impressive top 10 finishes. Ellie McVeigh narrowly missed the U13’s final with a close  3-2 defeat against Ukrainian Europe no 1 finishing 3rd
Dylan and Conor Moran both finished 3rd in their respective boys U11 and U13 events
Michael Craig finished 5th in the U19’s displaying  some of his usual mesmeric squash.
Luke Logan finished a very respectful 5th in U15 boys event.

Well Done to all!!
