Edinburgh squash player Doug Kempsell fought a two-part battle with the Fuller family from Nottingham as he narrowly failed to reach his second-successive Ipswich Open final.

The No.2 seed was pushed to the limit in the quarter-finals, squandering a two-game lead to Mark Fuller before squeezing through in a late-night finish.

Mark’s younger brother Chris, seeded three, lay in wait in the semi-finals, and the Englishman prevailed 13-11, 11-3, 6-11, 11-6.
