Taylor claims Welsh National under-17 title

First published in Local Sport by

BROTHERS Owain and Rhys Taylor have had plenty to celebrate.

The pair play their squash at Ardleigh Hall and Lexden.

And Owain, a Year 12 pupil in Sudbury, produced an outstanding performance to become Welsh under-17s champion, at the Welsh National Championships, in Prestatyn.

He won a superb contest against local player Emyr Evans, in a match that lasted 70 minutes.

His rapidly-increasing strength and fitness enabled him to close out 11/7 in the fifth, to win 3-2.

There was more success for the Taylor family when older brother Rhys achieved his first Welsh national selection for the under-20 test matches between England, Scotland, Wales and other international visitors to Herriot Watt University, in Edinburgh.

Owain has also been also selected to represent the under-18s.
