Girls county team forced to withdraw

Statement from Cumbria Junior Squash organiser David Henderson: “Regretfully, Cumbria Junior Squash has been forced to withdraw our girls U17 team from the National Trophy final that is scheduled for Saturday 16 January at Duffield Squash Club in Derbyshire.

“Despite the tireless and exhaustive efforts of our county team coordinator John Crichton, difficulties relating to travel, safeguarding and ultimately player injury, precipitated the need to take this difficult decision – despite the team having a realistic prospect of becoming the second Cumbrian team in the last two years to win a national trophy.”

Cumbria Squash would like to extend its thanks to John, the team members and parents who’ve supported the previous events this season.
