Nunholm Squash Club’s junior champion, Iain Anderson is heading north this weekend for a junior open graded competition.
The 16-year-old, who is also Dumfries and Galloway Secondary Schools Champion will compete against players from across the country at the Edinburgh event.
Following his success at Bridge Of Allan a couple of weeks ago, where he won his divisional group, Iain will look to build on that with, hopefully, a higher ranked division where he will be tested with higher quality opposition.
Iain has been getting plenty of practice in at Nunholm and is in good form having won two matches out of three playing for the Cisco Systems team in the John Henderson Leagues.
Cisco team captain Raymond Currie said: “Iain is playing well and is growing in confidence following wins against more experienced players in the club’s team matches.
“He needs matches against boys his own age though so he can assess how much real progress he is making in his game.
“So it is a credit to him that he is making the effort to get to these national competitions.”
The graded competition Iain has entered is open to all junior players throughout Scotland and entries are usually high as all those taking part are playing for important ranking points for the junior national rankings.
Iain is supported by Nunholm Squash Club, which forms part of Dumfries Sports Club.
