Taking their turn for Scotland: Robin Ridley, Davy Rogan, Sue Strachan, Jimmy Wells, Ronnie Carter

After Nunholm’s Sue Strachan and Davy Rogan took part in the Masters Squash Home Internationals last weekend it is now the turn of the reigning Scottish champions, Jimmy Wells and Robin Ridley and Lockerbie number 1, Ronnie Carter. They play on Friday night and Saturday at the Edinburgh Sports Club where they take on Ireland, Wales and the auld enemy, England.

In Dublin, Sue Strachan’s over 35’s team managed to come runners up to England in a very hard fought competition with 3-2 and 4-1 wins over Ireland and Wales respectively. England, however, just proved too strong and finished easy winners with Scotland coming out top in the “Celtic Nations Cup”.

Sue was delighted with the performance of her team and her individual performance. “I played the best tournament squash I have ever played particularly against Ireland’s Jenny Dillon in the deciding match of the tie with the score at 2-2.” Jenny had beaten Sue easily in their one previous encounter and so the form card suggested she would be victorious again. “The spirit in the Scottish team was great though and the others had battled too hard to get us into that position for me to fail them. I had a job to do for my team so I just went out and did it.”
