Simpson Soars To British Success In Calgary

Top seed Chris Simpson prevailed in an all-British final of the Talisman Energy Bankers Hall Club Pro Am in Canada to clinch the title in the eighth staging of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 squash event at Bankers Hall Club in Calgary.

The 23-year-old from Guernsey, in the Channel Islands, led the top four seeds through to the semi-finals - where he defeated Hong Kong's fourth seed Max Lee to make the fourth PSA Tour final of his career.

His opponent was the Scottish number one Alan Clyne, the No2 seed who overcame third-seeded Malaysian Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan in the other semi.

The Britons battled for 67 minutes in the climax - with Simpson extending his unbeaten record in Tour finals by securing his fourth title following an 11-6, 11-7, 2-11, 11-9 victory over the 24-year-old Scot.
