Declan James and Ben Coleman provided double English success in the qualifying finals of the ReidBuilt Homes Edmonton Open in Canada after winning places in the main draw of the PSA Challenger 15 event in its fifth successive year at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton.
James (pictured) denied Canadian hope Matthew Serediak, beating the 28-year-old from Toronto 11-7, 4-11, 11-8, 11-8.
However, the 19-year-old from Nottingham was not as happy as one might expect: "Not pleased with my performance tonight but managed to find my way to a 3-1 win," tweeted European Junior Champion James later. "Need to up the quality tomorrow."
Coleman took 61 minutes to see off France's Johan Bouquet 11-8, 13-11, 7-11, 11-5.
But Geoffrey Demont did provide French success. The 21-year-old from Aix-en-Provence defeated Kuwait's Ammar Al-Tamimi 11-8, 11-7, 11-3.
And home interest in the $15,000 event was boosted by Fred Reid after the 22-year-old from Toronto beat England's Steven London 11-6, 11-7, 7-11, 11-6.
