County Cup Finals: Report

Carlisle Squash Club retained their County Cup with a 3-2 win over Wigton ‘A’ in front of a raucous crowd on March 28.

Some very tight matches and tense rallies meant the showpiece final lived up to its billing as the highlight of the night. League runners-up Carlisle ‘B’ came out on top against a plucky Wigton side, with victories for Dave Box, Dave Gray and Paul Walkington. Wigton’s Jonny Irving and Chris Murdock picked up victories for their side.

In the ‘B’ final, unbeaten Wigton ‘B’, who later collected their Division 1 winners trophy, were beaten for the first time this season by Windscale ‘B’. It was another close match which finished 3-2 and could have gone either way.

Wigton ‘B’ player 15-year-old John Kemp also picked up the annual Player of the Year award after losing only one of his matches this season.
