Seeding predictions were fulfilled in both the Oceania Junior U19 Squash Championships and European Junior U19 Squash Championships when youngsters from the two World Squash Federation regions came together to do battle in New Zealand and Portugal, respectively.

There were home successes in both the men’s and women’s championships in Auckland where Finn Trimble survived a surprise all-New Zealand men’s final to beat third seed Quinn Udy 11-1, 11-8, 11-0 – and Kaitlyn Watts beat Australian Alexandra Haydon 11-8, 11-8, 11-4 to take the other title at Henderson Squash Club.

The European individual championships in Lisbon saw England lose their grip on the two titles. Victor Crouin battled for 56 minutes to see off England’s No.2 seed Kyle Finch 8-11, 13-11, 11-9, 11-8 in the men’s final at Lisboa Racket Centre to become the fourth Frenchman to claim the title – but the first for seven years.

The other final produced the first ever Spanish women’s champion when Madrid-based Cristina Gomez despatched England’s Elise Lazarus 11-9, 12-10, 11-1 to come through the event without dropping a game.

However, it was a 31st triumph since the inaugural championship in 1984 – and the eighth in a row – for the top seeds in the European U19 Team Championship final where England defeated surprise finalists Spain 2/0.

Czech Republic celebrated bronze medal success to achieve their best finish since 2011, while Norway recorded a best-ever 14th-place finish.
