Clyne couldn't ask for more after 10th Scottish National Championships triumph


By Andrew Henderson


Munlochy squash player Alan Clyne says winning 10 national titles would have been unthinkable when he first picked up a racket.

The 33-year-old defeated Rory Stewart in the final after North Kessock’s Greg Lobban withdrawal from the competition left Clyne and Stewart as the top two seeds.

Alan Clyne defeated Rory Stewart 11–5, 11–7, 11–7 to retain his Scottish National Championship, a seventh in a row and 10th overall.

It was a seventh Scottish National Championship win in a row for Clyne, who says he always seems to hit peak form at the home tournament.

“I thought it was a good final,” Clyne said.

“I started off very well which was crucial but Rory didn’t give up and he was testing me in the long rallies because he’s tricky to read.

“It was an entertaining match and I can’t ask for more than a 3–0 win. I love playing the nationals and always seem to perform at my best."
