Sixteen-year-old Egyptian Nouran Ahmed Gohar has taken the women’s Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Squash Open title.

Gohar overcame the experienced Sarah Kippax of England at Fitzwilliam, winning three games to one in superb fashion. It was her second WSA Tour title after winning in Prague just before Christmas last year.

In the men's competition, Adrian Waller of England took the title after a battle of attrition against Scotsman Alan Clyne in five games lasting 93 minutes.

It was an absolute battle of attrition between two experienced and forceful squash players, who slugged it out for five games over 93 minutes before Waller played a great smash into the front wall to take the final game 11/6, thus stopping Clyne from winning two tournaments in succession.
