Squash: Doubles Tournament

11 10 2010

The annual squash doubles tournament once again attracted a good turn-out of 8 pairs. The draw thus consisted of two groups of 4 pairs based on a round-robin format.

The winners of the first group were Chris McCutcheon and Raymond Currie with Jimmy Wells and Steven Forsyth finishing as runners-up. In the second group Garry McKean and Danny McBryde finished runners-up to Keith Gristwood and Peter Allen.

The semi-finals saw the winners of each group take on the runners-up with McCutcheon and Currie defeating McKean and McBryde, and Wells and Forsyth beating Gristwood and Allen.

The final promised to be a close-run contest and it lived up to its pre-match billing. The old pro Jimmy Wells kept his team in the match and levelled the score at one set-all, setting up the decider. The final game was very tight with neither side gaining any clear advantage and it went close right to the very end. It reached 14-14 with either side then requiring a 2 point lead to claim victory. Finally at 17-15 McCutcheon and Currie edged it to lift the trophy.
