LEE HORTON REPORTS
SILVERWARE from last weekend’s outstanding Essex Junior Open held at the Colchester Garrison was spread far and wide with no less than EIGHT different counties putting their name on the honours board..
As hosts, Essex bagged the majority of the trophies with 14 of the 26 gongs up for grabs remaining on home soil. But the strength of the field was testimony to the popularity of the event which once again ran like clockwork thanks to our brilliant volunteer committee spearheaded by EJS secretary Karen Selby and chairman David Harris.
The two-day event saw over 250 matches on court featuring an entry of more than 120 players. It was also our first event under the banner of new sponsors Miles Smith Insurance who have agreed to back our junior country programme in 2017. And we were delighted the Matt Cosby, Associate Director at Miles Smith Insurance was able to join us on Sunday to watch the action and hand out the trophies to all our winners. Matt, himself a keen squash player, was full of praise for the quality of squash and hopefully will return to his offices in central London with a glowing report from the event. Thanks for all your support Miles Smith.
All match scores will be posted shortly once they have been validated and sent to England Squash. In the mean time, here is the list of all our trophy winners. Also check out our Facebook page where you’ll find an amazing gallery of action photographs from the weekend’s action.
