PLAYER FACTS

alan clyne

Alan Clyne is the Scottish No.1 and has represented his country at various tournaments throughout his career.
Clyne captured his first PSA World Tour title at the Merrill Lynch Pegasus Charleston Challenge in 2008 and followed that up with victory at the PSA Magdalena Squash Open the year after.
2010 saw Clyne participate in both the singles and doubles events at the Commonwealth Games. Clyne, along with partner Harry Leitch, notably stunned Peter Barker and Daryl Selby to reach the semi-final stage in the doubles event.
Clyne’s three year wait for a PSA World Tour title was ended in 2013 when he beat Martin Knight, who was playing on home-soil, to secure the Fitzherbert Rowe Lawyers New Zealand International Squash Classic, his first PSA M10 title.
In 2014 he appeared once more at the Commonwealth Games in the summer but failed to earn a medal.
Clyne came incredibly close to winning his first PSA M25 title when he met Karim Abdel Gawad in the final of the Pittsburgh Open in February 2015 but the Scotsman narrowly lost out despite taking the first game.
He reached the same stage at the Costa Rica Open four months later but was again prevented from lifting the crown, this time by Peruvian Diego Elias.
The Scotsman bounced back five months later though, capturing the RC Pro Series title after a hard-fought encounter with Arturo Salazar.
Clyne reached the latter stages of a tournament for the first time since that victory in 2017 when he made it to the semi-final of the Swedish Open, where he was defeated over four games against Karim Abdel Gawad.

greg lobban

Inverness-born Greg Lobban is one of Scotland's best current players on the PSA World Tour.
Lobban broke the world's top 100 in March 2013 and his fifth PSA World Tour title came at the Steel City Open, beating George Parker in the final.
He went on to reach the final of the Victorian Open three months later before losing to Ryan Cuskelly and he followed that up with a quarter-final finish at the Kolkata International which enabled him to reach the world’s top 40 for the first time.
Lobban was sidelined for seven months of the season after he suffered a hamstring tear during his final clash with Grayson. However, the Scotsman soon rediscovered his form when he returned to the squash court in May, reaching six finals and claiming three titles – including wins at the Vitesse Stortford Classic, the NZ International Classic and the Invercargill Open.
