Squash Final Winter League Results 2023/24 and Other Info

Good Morning All

The 2023/24 Cornhill Squash Winter League came to a conclusion last night after 30 weeks of intense competition involving 49 players (a record) in total over the course of the six periods.

For the final 5-week period, congratulations to the following six players for winning their respective divisions:

Div 1 - Iain Massey

Div 2 - David Millard

Div 3 - David Mellor

Div 4 - Colin Reid

Div 5 - Peter Felix

Div 6 - Joe Jones

A new ball awaits each of you for your endeavours.

So that brings us to the final statistics (see below) for the Squash Winter League season:

  • 557 league matches were played - an amazing increase of 44% (170 matches) on last season's all-time record of 387 total matches played.
  • 73% of all potential matches were played during the season, including 96% in Division 1 - a great effort.
  • The average number of league matches played per 5-week session was 4.4 per player - another record.

The Cornhill Squash Club Winter League Champion is Iain Massey . Iain's second league win in succession and his 4th championship in the last five years. Iain played 35 matches during the season, winning 32 of them.

Runner-up in a very tight finish is Jamie Johnstone , again demonstrating the value of accumulating points even if you are on the wrong end of the final result. Jamie also played 35 matches, winning 23 of them.

In third place is Chris Ridgway , our Club Chair and one of our two Trustees. Chris just ran out of games in the final period in his effort to overhaul Jamie. He played 31 matches, winning 25 of them.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Winter League, particularly those of you who played in this competition for the first time. The 2024/25 Squash Winter League will commence on Monday 30th September 2024 so we hope that we can persuade an even greater number of members to get involved next season.

Elsewhere in the other Cornhill competitions:

  • The final of the inaugural Frederick Wright Racketball Knockout Trophy will be played between Chris Ridgway and David Millard.
  • The final of the Cornhill Squash Challenge Cup will be played between Loz Foster and David Robinson.
  • In the Cornhill Squash Plate Competition we now have 3 of the 4 semi-finalists in Malcolm Alphonso, John Dobbins and Chris Ridgway, with Simon Langley and Raj Khepar fighting it out for the final berth today.

Once we have the Plate finalists, we will advise on the timings for the three cup finals. Ideally, we want to play all three matches prior to the AGM in the early evening of Wednesday 22nd May, but is subject to players' availability and whether or not Chris is involved in two of the three matches. More info to follow on this in mid-May.
