Hinds In Seventh Heaven After Surviving Belfast Marathon

England's Joel Hinds recorded the longest winning match of his career when he beat second-seeded compatriot Angus Gillams in the final of the Legacy Wealth Belfast Open, the inaugural PSA M5 squash event at the Belfast Boat Club in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The top seed from Derby had to fight back from 2/1 down to see off Gillams, the No.2 seed from London, 11-9, 8-11, 6-11, 11-9, 11-7 in 97 minutes to notch up the seventh PSA World Tour title of his career.
 
Finch Is A Flier In Belfast Open

Qualifier Kyle Finch continued his superb progress at his first ever PSA World Tour event with a sublime victory over fourth seed Hugo Varela in the opening round of the Belfast Open, PSA M5 event.

The 16-year-old, who secured his place in the main draw with a surprise victory over Matthew Sidaway in qualifying, dominated the encounter with some accurate shotmaking and intelligent use of the court. The Southampton-born World No.374 rose to an 11-5, 11-6, 11-1 victory to move through to the quarter-final.

“I am delighted to be through to this stage in my first PSA World Tour tournament,” said Finch.

He goes up against South Africa’s Jean-Pierre Brits after the number six seed overcame a dogged challenge from Josh Taylor in his first round fixture.

Another youngster, Patrick Rooney, made a good impression with a stunning scalp of Christo Potgieter. The 18-year-old is ranked 49 places below his opponent in the World Rankings but it counted for very little as he blew Potgieter away with a straight games triumph. He has a testing encounter with Joel Hinds up next after the number one seed defeated James Peach.

Mike Lewis’ hopes of breaking his PSA World Tour title duck were distinguished after he suffered defeat to Phil Nightingale. Nightingale will go up against the Spaniard Edmon Lopez Moller after he defeated home hope Brian Byrne.

Meanwhile, Angus Gillams and Nick Mulvey will go head-to-head in the other quarter-final tie after they saw off Kevin Moran and Jon Geekie, respectively.
