26 02 2008

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.

Central Scotland Squash Masters

The squash masters were at it again this weekend, this time in the Bridge of Allan Open Masters Tournament. Once more they figured in the finals.

Davy Rogan repeated his East of Scotland victory by winning the over 70’s event. Sue Strachan was beaten again in a Masters final in the Ladies’ over 35 event but is hopeful that the results will put her in a good position to be selected when the Scottish National  teams are announced in March.

Nunholm hopes to have representatives at several Scotland age groups for the
Home Internationals in May 2008.
