Lancastrian flies home to become first player to win three consecutive English Senior titles

Squires blooms again at English Seniors

Alan Squires has become the first player to win the English Seniors for a third successive time following a final-round 69 at Aldeburgh Golf Club, Suffolk.

Starting the final day seven strokes off the pace, Squires carded two birdies and three bogeys to sign for a 16-over total of 221 and three-shot victory over compatriot Chris Reynolds.

“This is unbelievable,” said the Oldham-based star. “I love this event and to win three times in a lifetime is something but to be the first man to win it three times in a row in special.”

“When I walked off the final green last evening at Thorpeness having taken a double-bogey, I said to myself, ‘Well you can’t win it every year’.

“But I spent an hour on the range to sort myself out and after playing six holes today at level par, I felt I still had a chance.”

Squires won the title for the first time at Carlisle in 2010 and successfully defended it at Northants County 12 months ago.
