Ireland’s Denis Gilevskiy lost out in the Under-15 final at the British Junior Open Championship – the competition considered to be the world championship in underage squash.
The 14-year-old from Bray was seeded number one and he started well, taking the first game against Ameeshenraj Chandaran 11-8 at the University of Birmingham.
But the Malaysian teenager roared back into the match and took the second game 11-6.
From here he was dominant, taking game three 11-5 and game four 11-7 to complete a comfortable 3-1 win.
Chandaran came into the competition as fifth seed and afterwards he had encouraging words for Gilevskiy.
He said: "He’s a great player. I wore him out, I guess, but he was really skillful and solid throughout the game."
Gilevskiy won the British Junior Open Championship Under-13 title two years ago.
