Squash: Doug Kempsell handed tough British draw

Have your say

Edinburgh’s Doug Kempsell has been handed a testing first-round draw at next week’s British National Squash Championships in Manchester.

The 21-year-old will face London left-hander Adrian Grant next Wednesday night. Grant is a former world No.9 and was runner-up at the 2009 British Nationals.

Meanwhile, Kempsell climbed two places to No.114 in yesterday’s new PSA world rankings after reaching the final of last month’s London Under-23 Open and the quarter-finals in Edinburgh last weekend.
