Two top Saints players pulled off a title double at the Anchor Insurance North Wales Open championships staged on their home courts at Meliden.

Firm favourite Tesni Evans, pictured right, celebrated attaining her highest-ever world ranking of 43 by lifting the premier Ladies A crown, defeating her Saints Academy stable-mate Hannah Davies in the final while Simon Bryan showed his class by winning the tough Mens D event, defeating Lancashire county opponent Dave Partington of Blackpool 3-2  in a thriling decider.

Liam Jones almost made it a Saints’ triple with a tremendous run in the Mens C event, only to be edged out in four tight games in the final while other notable performances came from talented sisters Tyra and Layna Beattie as they finished third and fourth respectively in the Ladies B event.

Wales choice Jordan Davies did well to take sixth place in the challenging Mens A event while regular young international performer Emyr Evans, of Rhyl, underlined his burgeoning talent by reaching the quarter-finals in his first A category event.

A further boost for Emyr came when he was named in the Wales Under-18s team, along with Lowri Roberts, in the forthcoming test matches against England, Scotland and the Czech Republic in Edinburgh, together with Jordan Davies, chosen for the Under-20s team.

Meanwhile, Emyr warmed up in style with a winning display as Saints Firsts narrowly fell 3-2 to Xaverians in their North West Counties League Division One encounter in Liverpool.  

Chris Davies, who came from match-ball down to win his match 3-2 was Saints only other winner as the inclusion of two professionals in the Xaverians quintet resulted in defeats for Adam Curry, Tesni Evans and Jordan Davies.

In the North Wales League, defending champions Saints had to concede their Division One match at Wrexham-Brymbo when illness and injuries left them with a crippling player shortage while St Asaph pulled off a 4-1 win over Saints B, Sandy Stewart, Mark Evans, Emyr Jones and Ed Hughes seeing St Asaph safely through.
Saints C fared better, pipping Beaufort Park 3-2 thanks to Andrew Smith, Neil Patterson and hero George Webb with his 3-1 win to tip the verdict.
