Greg Lobban won his 13 tour title of his professional squash career when he claimed victory the Pembroke Management Open de Montreal.

The North Kessock athlete defeated Nathan Lake from England 3-0 in the final 11-8, 11-5, 11-8 in 35 minutes.

Lobban, who is ranked 23rd in the world pulled clear in each of the three games before securing the title.

Both both games one and three ended 11-8 to the Scot having been locked at 7-7, while game two was slightly more one-sided, with Lobban stringing together seven points out of eight to move from 4-4 to 11-5.

Lobban, a former Fortrose Academy pupil, who started his squash career and Inverness Squash Club, only dropped only one game in the tournament to secure the 13th Tour title of his career, and his first tournament win since.
