Scots down English in Commonwealth Doubles upset!

Alan Clyne (pic) and Harry Leitch pulled off a major upset in the quarter-finals action in the Commonwealth Games Squash Doubles when the Scots downed England’s 3rd seeds Peter Barker and Daryl Selby in straight games to reach the Men’s Doubles semi-finals in Delhi. Scotland – which boasts only one doubles court, off the Scottish coast on the Shetland Islands – has targeted doubles as its specialist area. Unranked Leitch, a postgraduate medical student at Cambridge University, and Clyne, the world No50, showed this conclusively as the pair carved up the experienced Englishmen 11-7, 11-7 in 69 minutes. Men’s Doubles semi-final line-up: [1] Adrian Grant & Nick Matthew (ENG) v [4] Ryan Cuskelly & Cameron Pilley (AUS), [2] Stewart Boswell & David Palmer (AUS) v [5] Alan Clyne & Harry Leitch (SCO).
