Creed Claims Charing Cross Classic Title


Welsh No.2 Peter Creed overcame European Junior Champion Patrick Rooney to triumph in the final of the LOC Charing Cross Classic, PSA M5 tournament held in London – lifting his sixth PSA World Tour title.

The World No.75, known on the Tour for his entertaining, all-action displays, progressed to the final courtesy of wins over Portuguese qualifier Claudio Pinto and English duo Lyell Fuller and Joe Green.

19-year-old Rooney, who was unseeded for the tournament, downed a trio of seeds on his way through to the final, putting third seed Chris Fuller, number eight seed Robert Downer and top seed Nathan Lake to the sword, with the latter of those fixtures going all the way to five games.

Rooney, the World No.133, kept up his impressive form to go a game ahead in the final, only to take just a single point in game two after a superb response from Caerphilly-born Creed.

The final two games were more closely-contested affairs, but it was the Welshman who came out on top again in both and he closed out a 5-11, 11-1, 11-5, 11-6 victory to lift his first Tour crown in 16 months.
