The display cabinet at Horncastle Squash Club will be groaning under the weight of silverware.

The club’s teams have just completed a terrific season in three different leagues.

They are champions of the Lincoln League’s Premier Division and Division One of the Lincolnshire League.

They almost made it a clean sweep of honours but had to settle for third place in Division One of the Lincoln League after a thrilling end to the season.

Horncastle went into 
their last game needing maximum points against Lincoln based Eastgate to take the title.

They produced a tremendous effort but 17 out of a possible 19 points was not quite enough.

Other results also went against them and Horncastle had to settle for third spot - still a creditable effort in such a strong competition.

Ironically, Horncastle came up against the same opponents - Eastgate - for 
the Lincolnshire League crown.

Horncastle needed two points to win the league and picked up 11.

A club spokesman said: “It’s been a great season and congratulations to all our players.”
