The J.C.Lindsay Scottish Junior Championships were hosted by the Edinburgh Sports Club, December 28 – 30, and attracted over 200 entries. Dominic Wren, of La Sportheque club, was the sole entry from the ODSA area, but what a startling performance he turned in. He was the fifth Canadian to win a Scottish Boys Under 19 title, and the fourth to do it in the past 10 years, with Sushane Soni – 1984, Nicholas Sachvie – 2008, Andrew Schnell – 2009, and Tyler Osborne – 2010, being the others.
To make the final, he beat Tino Mackay of Scotland (3-1), Keane Appleton of England (3-0), Uzair Rasheed of Pakistan (3-2, after trailing 1-2), and Christopher Murphy of Scotland (3-0). The final was a real nailbiter between Dominic and the defending champion from England, Michael Andrews, but Dominic prevailed 11-8, 11-9, 7-11, 10-12, 12-10, or 51 points to 50!
Congratulations, Dominic, on a wonderful performance. Enjoy it while you can, because the Egyptians will be out in full force at your next tournament – the British Junior Open!
