Eight For Ayton At Manchester Masters

Titles in the popular Masters events in the British National Squash Championships at the National Squash Centre in Manchester were spread throughout England, Scotland and Ireland - with English successes from Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Suffolk, Durham & Cleveland, Sussex, Nottinghamshire, Cheshire and the host county Lancashire.

But the star performer was Sussex's Philip Ayton who beat Middlesex's Chris Goodbourn 9-3, 9-7, 9-2 in the final of the Men's Over-65 championship. Ayton led England to success in the inaugural European Team Championships in 1973 and went on to win the British National title two years later. But the Brighton-based veteran's success in Manchester marks his eighth National Masters crown after winning the Over-50 title in 1998 followed by three Over-55 and Over-60 titles between 2003 and 2009.

Lancashire's Jersey-based Nick Taylor successfully defended his Men's Over-35 crown, beating Kent's Ben Ford 9-11, 11-4, 11-9, 11-9 to win the trophy for the third year in a row.

There were first time Masters successes in the Men's Over-40 and Men's Over-45 events - Yorkshireman Nick Wall wining the former after beating Glen Ragou (Lancs) 11-0, 11-2, 9-11, 11-2 in the final, and Derbyshire's Murray Scott upsetting Manchester-based top seed Yawar Abbas, from Durham & Cleveland, 3-9, 9-10, 9-5, 9-4, 9-5 in a marathon 87-minutes Over-45 final.

Gloucestershire's Mark Woodliffe mounted a successful defence of his Men's Over-50 title, defeating Middlesex's Alan Thomson 9-0, 9-1, 9-5 to add these titles to his collection which includes one Over-45 and one Over-40 trophy.

Suffolk's Peter Alexander also brought his tally of Nationals Masters titles to four when he beat Middlesex's top seed Mark Cowley 9-4, 9-4, 3-0 (ret.) in the Men's Over-55 final. Alexander's previous successes include Over-40 titles in 1997 and 1998.

Nottinghamshire's Adrian Wright and David Lumsden, from Durham & Cleveland, both marked their fifth Masters title successes in Manchester. Lumsden, despatched Lancashire's Moussa Helal 9-3, 9-1, 9-1 in just 20 minutes in the Men's Over-60 final to win his first trophy in this age-group after three triumphs at Over-50 and a later one at Over-55.

Derbyshire-based Wright was also celebrating his first success in the Men's Over-70 championship, where he beat Cheshire opponent Geoff Coe 9-1, 9-5, 9-5 in the final. Wright's trophy cabinet also bears the fruit of three successes at Over-65 and one at Over-60.

In only the second ever Men's Over-75 event, Gloucestershire's John Woodliffe beat Hampshire's defending champion Lance Kinder 9-5, 9-1, 10-8 in the final. The win completes a neat hat-trick for the 75-year-old from Camberley in Surrey who won his first domestic Masters title at Over-65 and his second at Over-70.

Ireland's Cheshire-based Laura Mylotte retained her Women's Over-35 crown after beating Surrey's Alexa Prior 9-2, 9-2, 4-9, 9-7 in the final.

Nikki Fowler celebrated her third successive appearance in the final of the Women's Over-40 championship. But after failing to retain her title last year, the top seed from Cheshire made amends by beating Buckinghamshire's Sam Mueller 9-7, 9-2, 9-7 in this year's final to win the title for a second time.

There were first time successes in the Women's Over-45 and Women's Over-50 events. Yorkshire's Nicola Horn triumphed in the former, beating Kent's Mandy Akin 9-0, 9-7, 9-7 in the final. County colleague Paula Arrowsmith also scored a maiden triumph in the Over-50 final where she defeated Durham & Cleveland's Jacky Gardner 9-6, 9-6, 9-0.

It was also a Yorkshire triumph in the Women's Over-55 championship - but in this case Julie Field was notching up her fifth Masters success. An Over-40 champion back in 1997, Field struck back with three titles in the Over-50 age-group before celebrating her maiden Over-55 title after beating Scotland's Eunice Bond 9-2, 9-7, 9-7 in the final.

But there was Scottish success in the first staging of the Women's Over-60 event. Faith Sinclair, with previous success at Over-45, battled for five games and 44 minutes to overcome Rebecca Czuczman from Kent 9-6, 9-10, 3-9, 9-4, 9-1 in the final to become the first name on this new trophy.
