England In The Semi-Finals Of The WSF World Junior Team Championships
England, the No3 seeds and four-time former champions will take on Pakistan, the second seeds and also previous winners of the title four times in the semi-final of the Doha WSF Men’s World Junior Team Squash Championship at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex.
Despite resting squad number one Ollie Holland, England defeated sixth seeds USA – Richie Fallows and Thomas Ford both winning 3/0 to put the third seeds through to their 17th consecutive semi-final.
“On paper, it might have looked like an easy match – but it was not,” said England manager David Campion. “USA showed they were a dangerous team. We were very happy with the start Richie gave us, while later on, Tom really dismantled Dylan, and he knew it was going to take some time, but he did it perfectly.”
Tom Ford added, “I was really pleased with mine & the boys’ performance this evening.”
The team is playing at 18:00hrs Qatari time, 16:00hrs English time and their progress can be followed via live streaming at: Watch Live
