England On Course For European Double
England will contest both the men's and women's finals of the European Team Squash Championships after decisive victories in the semi-finals of the European Squash Federation event at the Sportpark Nord in Nürnberg, Germany.

For the 12th time since 1999, favourites England will face France in the men's final. Title-holders England despatched Scotland, the sixth seeds, 4/0 - and later second seeds France beat No6 seeds Germany 4/0.

England's women brushed aside hosts Germany 3/0 and will now face Ireland in the final.

With their semi-final against fourth seeds France tied at one-all, Ireland's second string Aisling Blake staged a courageous comeback to beat Coline Aumard 11-4, 6-11, 7-11, 11-3, 11-5 to put Ireland into the final for the first time since 1989.

Hosts Germany Celebrate Twin Semi-Final Berths In European Championships
Hosts Germany fully exploited home advantage in the European Team Squash Championships in Nürnberg by securing unexpected semi-final berths in both the men's and women's events of the 40th staging of the European Squash Federation event at the Sportpark Nord.

Despite losing 4/0 to men's favourites and defending champions England, fifth seeds Germany cemented their position as runners-up in Pool A by defeating eighth seeds Denmark 3/1.

The hosts, certain to achieve their best finish since 2008, will now meet France for a place in the final. The second seeds, runners-up for the past four years, beat Scotland 4/0 and Italy 3/1 to finish as expected Pool B winners.

But Scotland went on to beat Finland 3/1 to finish in second place - putting the sixth seeds through to an unpredicted semi-final, where they will face England. The plucky Scots, led by world No28 Alan Clyne, are already sure to celebrate their best finish since 1999!

Sixth seeds in the women's event, Germany scored one of the best results of the day by beating second seeds Netherlands 2/1. The Dutch side took the lead through Natalie Grinham, but Jennifer Hathway struck back to draw level, then Franziska Hennes produced the performance of her life to fight back from 2/0 to beat Milja Dorenbos 6-11, 7-11, 11-6, 11-7, 11-6 to clinch a crucial victory for the hosts.

Germany went on to defeat Switzerland 2/1 to finish in second place in Pool B - and will now meet title-holders England in the semi-finals.

Germany & Scotland Spring Early Surprises In European Team Championships
Scotland and hosts Germany made the biggest impressions on the opening day in the European Team Squash Championships with upsets over Italy and Netherlands, respectively, in the 40th staging of the European Squash Federation event at the Sportpark Nord in Nürnberg.

While defending champions England and second seeds France had comfortable 4/0 wins over Denmark and Finland, respectively, in the men's event, rising German star Simon Rosner beat higher-ranked Dutchman Laurens Jan Anjema in straight games to lead the fifth-seeded hosts to a rousing 3/1 Pool A win over the fourth seeds and former finalists.

"Won my first match against LJ Anjema 3:0 - very pleased with my performance," tweeted the 24-year-old world No19 from Paderborn afterwards. "Go Germany!"

It was in Pool B that Scotland, the sixth seeds, despatched third seeds Italy 3/1, with the rapidly-improving team number one Alan Clyne recovering from a game down to beat experienced Italian Davide Bianchetti 9-11, 11-6, 11-5, 11-7.

England began their defence of the women's title with a straightforward 3/0 win over Wales - while the remaining top four seeded teams France, Netherlands and Ireland also recorded 3/0 victories.

But it was in the Division 2 event that some of the biggest shocks took place as teams bid to join the elite 'first division' featuring the region's top eight countries.

Top men's seeds Wales could only manage a 2/2 draw with Austria, the ninth seeds - then went down 3/1 to a determined Ireland.

Irish champion Arthur Gaskin led the fifth seeds to victory with a 4-11, 11-8, 11-9, 11-8 win over Welsh champion Peter Creed, before indefatigable Irishman Derek Ryan - a 42-year-old from Dublin who made his ETC debut in 1988 - twice came from behind to beat Nic Birt 5-11, 11-5, 9-11, 11-4, 11-6.

In Pool B, sixth seed Switzerland crushed No2 seeds Czech Republic 4/0, led by rising Swiss star Nicolas Mueller.

Belgium made clear their intentions in the women's championship. Led by 33-year-old many time Belgian champion Kim Hannes, the sixth seeds first beat top seeds Spain 2/1, then also defeated Austria, the fourth seeds, 2/1.
