England squad named for World Juniors

National Coach David Campion has named the England squad which will head to the 2019 WSF Men’s & Women’s World Junior Squash Championships in Kuala Lumpur from 30th July to 9th August.

Amongst the nine selected, four represented England at last year’s World Championships which saw Team England’s men capture silver and Lucy Turmel claim individual bronze.

Two-time British Junior Open champion Sam Todd, who goes into the event as 5/8 seed, headlines the boys’ challenge and he’ll be joined by Max Forster, Jared Carter, Lewis Anderson and Ben Smith.

Meanwhile, Elise Lazarus, seeded 5/8, spearheads the girls’ individual and team challenge alongside Alice Green, Evie Coxon and Katie Wells.

David Campion said: “The World Junior Championships are steeped in history and our players are all incredibly excited to be representing England at this event. The girls’ team will be without European finalist Katie Malliff, which is a shame, but she has a bright future and her time will come. Led by Elise Lazarus, who is seeded to reach the last eight of the individual event, we have enough strength to fight for medals.

“We are well represented throughout the squad of boys, who will compete in the individual event. It’s a young group where the top three are all eligible for the boys’ team event in Brisbane next year, and these championships will provide valuable experience for them.”

The individual championships take place at the National Squash Centre from July 30 – August 4, followed by the biennial WSF Women’s World Junior Team Championships from August 5-9.

The quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals of the individual championships between August 2-4 will all be available on SQUASHTV, along with the entirety of the team championships.

The action will also be available on the official PSA World Tour Facebook page, and the PSA SQUASHTV YouTube and Dailymotion channels.
