Powerful Parker Lifts Northumbria Open Crown

Englandís George Parker captured the second PSA World Tour title of his career with a scintillating 3-1 victory over compatriot Joe Green in the final of the True Potential Northumbria Open, PSA M5 tournament.

Parker, whose only previous silverware came at the XVI Trofeu Internacional Ciutat de Barcelona six months ago, was in excellent form in the build up to the final, downing Patrick Rooney, Michael Harris and Tristan Eysele to secure a 7th PSA World Tour final appearance. Meanwhile, Green progressed to the showpiece event courtesy of a walkover against Ben Ford who pulled out due to injury.

Greenís fresh legs didnít seem to make a difference though after a fast start from Leicester-born Parker saw the 19-year-old power into a two-game lead.

A fightback from Green looked to be on the cards as he fought back to take the third but his attempts to overhaul Parker were rebuffed as he failed to match the World No.76 in the final game as Parker closed out an 11-5, 11-7, 7-11, 11-7 victory to double his PSA World Tour title tally.

That win leaves Parker perfectly placed to challenge for a main draw spot at next weekís Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open where he will battle against the likes of Tayyab Aslam, Peter Creed and fellow Englishman Richie Fallows.
Local Lights Reign Supreme In Qualifying


Local players David Barnett and Liam Gutcher secured safe passage through to the final qualifying round of the True Potential Northumbria Open, PSA M5 tournament after terrific victories over Elliot Selby and Xavi Blasco, respectively.

Barnett was in superb form against Selby, brother of World No.16 Daryl, and rose to claim an 11-3, 11-6, 11-5 triumph on home turf at Jesmondís Nourthumberland Club.

Gutcher was similarly impressive in his fixture with Blasco and will face Barnett in the next round of qualifying as both players eye up a main draw berth.

Elsewhere, Welshman Emyr Evans was too strong for Sean Millington in their clash with the World No.198 wrapping up the victory in three to advance. Evans will go up against talented 17-year-old Kyle Finch who is one step away from reaching a fourth career PSA World Tour main draw after seeing off Michael Collins.

World No.212 Julian Tomlinson dispatched Jamie Todd in straight games to set up a meeting with fellow Englishman Ben Coates in the next round.

Finally, Austriaís Jakob Dirnberger, one of only two non-British competitors in the qualifying stages, prevailed in his fixture with Sam Broughton and is rewarded with a tie against Miles Jenkins up next.
