Murray Takes Carlisle Win

Sutton’s Andy Murray has made a fantastic start to his season by winning the O50’s event at the North of England Masters event in Carlisle. Murray, who captained the England O50 team last year, was top seed but expected to face serious competition from long term rival Andy Cross.

With a bye in the first round Murray beat Simon Miller (Buckinghamshire) and Gary Elliott (Cambridgeshire) both in straight games to reach the final. In a seesaw match he came back from 2-1 down to claim the win 11-3 in the 5th.
