Adam Simkins leads Fakenham to Norfolk squad glory
Fakenham's Adam Sinkins was top dog in the second Norfolk Junior Squash Grand Prix of the year.
Sinkins claimed his fifth GP win from six, beating club-mate Connor Doy 3-1 in a competitive Group One final.
Joseph Weavers finished a best-ever third, while Drew Butchart showed greatest improvement in beating both Martin Jolley and Sam Lanham 3-2 to finish fifth.
Group Two also provided some close matches, with Giles Evans justifying his number one seeding to win the group.
The remaining positions were dictated by 3-2 wins for David Gorrod over Rob Davis, and Robby Coates over Nathan Shearing.
Prakrit Kumar was too strong for the opposition in Group Three, coming through comfortably unbeaten, with Liam Mooney's double seeing him second.
Group Four was won by Bonnie Butler, who made a storming comeback from 2-0 down to beat Phil Davis 3-2 and take the group victory.
