SQUASH: Horncastle Squash Club serve up title wins



Have your say

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.”
