Northern Juniors Squash the Opposition!

The Northern’s young squash stars have recorded a string of successes in the past two weeks.

At the start of February the Club’s Junior 1st team – Fin Coote, Luke Chadwick, Will Gregson and Miriam Mulla – lifted the 1st Division trophy in the NWCSL Junior Winter League, beating teams from Grove Park, Prestbury and Haslingden.

Then just a week later, Finn Withington and Saran Nghiem (pictured above) won the Boys U-17 and Girls U-19 titles in the Manchester Junior Open, an England Squash Silver Event.

More than 250 youngsters from all over the UK competed in the Open, which was held on February 7th – 9th at three venues – The Northern, The National Squash Centre and Grove Park.

Saran won a tight 3-2 battle against Pontefract’s Asia Harris to take the Girls U-19 crown, while Finn recorded an impressive 3-0 win over Ben Beachill, also from the Yorkshire Club.

Both Saran and Finn play for The Northern’s 1st Division senior teams.
