Scotstoun squash player Robyn Mcalpine secured the girls’ under-15 Scottish Junior National title after a great win over Crieff’s Anna Halliday at Aberdeen Squash and Racketball Club earlier this month.

In her first season competing at under-15 level, Robyn won her second ever national title.

Last year she won the GU13 event and is now part of a new crop of very talented Scottish GU15 players including Rowan Niven, Anna Halliday and Louisa Kaven who all made the semi-finals in Aberdeen.

Anna defeated Louisa in their last four clash 11-7, 11-8, 7-11, 11-8 while Robyn edged out Rowan in three tight games 9-11, 8-11, 8-11.

In the final, Robyn’s consistency proved important as she beat Anna 6-11, 4-11, 5-11.

She said: “To have won in my first year at under-15s is great.

“I had to focus all the way through the final because Anna is a really tough competitor.

“I was pleased with my concentration and my length and beating Rowan and Anna in the same tournament is something I’m very happy about because they are good players.”

The 13-year-old added: “Next for me is the Five Nations and European team events if selected which are always really enjoyable to play in.”

Robyn’s brother Cailean won BU11 bronze with fellow Scotstoun player Murdo Mackenzie securing BU11 silver.

Other Scotstoun players to secure a Scottish Junior National medal include Archie Niven (BU13 silver), Ellen Phillips (GU13 silver) and Edith Mackenzie (GU17 silver and GU19 bronze).
