Ireland’s Sinead Chambers suffered a straight-sets defeat to France’s Perrine le Buhanic in the women’s final at the Fyffes Irish Futures Series at Baldoyle in Dublin.

Chambers saved four matches points before falling to a 21-17 21-17 loss.

In the men's singles final, Mattias Wigardt of Sweden cruised to a facile 21-8 21-9 victory over France’s Maxim Michel.

The young Welsh pairing of Daniel Font and Oliver Gwilt toppled top seeds Martin Campbell and Angus Gilmour in the men’s doubles final.

After losing the opening set 21-12, Font and Gwilt battled back to win the second 26-24, before closing out the match 21-16 in the tie-breaker.

In Saturday's finals, the experienced duo of Edward Cousins and Keelin Fox saw off the youthful challenge of Stuart Lightbody and Caroline Black in an all-Irish contest.

Experience again won out in the women's doubles final, where Sinead Chambers and Jennie King beat junior internationals Rachel Darragh and Alannah Stephenson in another all-Irish final.
