Squash Club Finals this Fri/Sat/Sun

17 03 2009

This weekend at Dumfries Sports Club will see the final matches of the Club Championship, Jim Thorburn Trophy and Junior Club Championship all played on a Finals Day on Sunday 22nd March. All club members are urged to come and support the finals weekend on what should be a great advert for squash for our area.

The Junior event will start play on Saturday afternoon where there will be a healthy number of the club’s junior players on show and it will climax with the junior final taking place on the Sunday.

The favourite will be defending Champion Iain Anderson but he is sure to be pushed all the way by last years runner up Douglas Brotherston.

In the main Club Championship event, the semi-finals will take place on Friday night at 7pm with Malcolm McCubbin taking on new Scottish Masters over 45 Champion Jimmy Wells in the first semi. This will be followed by Les Harkness who will look to overcome the new Scottish Masters over 50 Champion Robin Ridley. Two cracking matches are in prospect and a good turnout of spectators is expected.

In the Jim Thorburn trophy, the popular handicap competition, young Iain Anderson takes on the hard hitting Davy Lindsay in the first semi final at 7:15pm. This will be a tough one for Davy as he has a big handicap to turn around so expect a tight game here. The other semi sees Lister McKiddie forget the tennis court for a bit to face hotelier Phil Leek. Phil too has an advantage on the handicap so it will be a stern test for Lister.

Presentation of prizes will follow in the main lounge after ALL finals with Chair of the Squash Committee Sue Strachan.
