Christopher Grimley and Ciara Torrance U19 SNJC 2017Scotland suffered mixed fortunes on the opening afternoon of the individual events at the European Junior Championships 2017 at Mulhouse.

Alex Dunn and Eleanor O’Donnell got off to a winning start in the mixed doubles but Christopher Grimley and Ciara Torrance made a first-round exit.

Dunn and O’Donnell defeated Slovakian pair Adam Horak and Mia Tarcalova 21-17 21-13 to earn a second-round clash with Slovenia’s Miha Ivancic and Petra Polanc.

But Grimley and Torrance bowed out against England’s Max Flynn and Lizzie Tolman 21-19 21-18.

Coach Robert Blair said: "Alex and Eleanor ran out comfortable victors and will be up against the fourth seeds in the next round.

“But it was a mixed day because Ciara and Christopher went down in a tight affair against the English pair. Neither pair found their best form and Chris and Ciara did not capitalise on their early dominance. They were made to pay when the English came up with a few good shots at the end of each game to take the match.”

Christopher will be back in doubles action tomorrow with twin brother Matthew. The fourth seeds have a first-round bye. Ciara also has her women’s doubles to come but she and Eleanor also have a first-round bye.

The rest of the squad are in action today as the individual events get into full swing with Matthew Grimley, Ciar Pringle, Holly Newall and Rachel Sugden in singles action.
