Squash: Dumfries win big at East Masters

26 01 2010

Dumfries Squash Club was well-represented at the East of Scotland Masters last weekend in Edinburgh and came away with five titles out of the 10 on offer.

The Dumfries winners included Sue Strachan in the O-35 ladies event and Faith Sinclair who won the O-50 ladies title, both repeating their successes and retaining the titles they secured at last November’s inaugural South of Scotland Masters in Dumfries.

In the men’s events Dumfries’ “old” boys Abbie Robertson and Davy Rogan again contested the O-70s final with Abbie repeating his success over Davy who finished runner-up.

In the O-45s current Scottish Champion Jimmy Wells was in excellent form and won the title with a brave performance in the final winning 3-2 over Chris Holt from the West.

In the O-50s current Scottish Champion Robin Ridley, playing his first Masters tournament of the season after returning from keyhole knee surgery, was also in fine form only dropping one set throughout the tournament to secure a 3-0 win in the final.

So once again, Dumfries Squash Club continues to push well above its weight on the Scottish Squash Masters national circuit. Any players interested in being a part of, or finding out more about, the success of the club can call in at Dumfries Sports Club at Nunholm or visit the website: http://www.dumfriessportsclub.co.uk

The Scottish Masters Closed Championships are on this weekend in Aberdeen and will have a strong representation from the Nunholm Squash Club.

Sue Strachan in the over-35 and over-40’s women’s competitions hopes to be well placed and has a full weekend with five tough matches to play. Les Harkness is the club’s sole representative at over-40’s and Jim Wells moves on to join Ronnie Carter in the over-45’s in the largest of all the age group draws. Abbie Robertson hopes to catch the eye of the selectors at over-65 and Davy Rogan ,who is the reigning Scottish champion and number 1, hopes to hang on to his title despite strong opposition by “the young guy” in the draw who is “only 70”! The club wishes them good luck in their trek north.
