Prott, who is based at the Oriam peformance centre, looked far sharper from the outset and wasted little time in outclassing the Carlisle youngster in three straight games, 11-4, 11-2, 11-4.

“I’m really pleased,” said Prott. “Winning your home tournament feels great, and as the only Scot to reach a final I was glad to get over the finishing line. My concentration was good and I thought I executed my plans well throughout the tournament, which allowed me to keep my opponent’s score pretty low in most matches.”
