Arun Leisure Centre Squash Club completed the finals of their annual competitions.

The matches were held on a knockout basis over a short period and included the club’s main trophy, the Jackson Trophy, named in honour of two late members Dave and Fred Jackson, plus a handicap competition and a doubles tournament.

The winner of the Jackson Trophy, and club champion, was Steve May, who managed to overcome Jon Woosley 15/6, 15/12, 15/9.

The plate competition was won by Kevin Hughes after a very competitive game against Dave Barrow, Hughes finally triumphing 15/12, 14/16, 12/15, 16/14, 15/10.

The handicap tournament was also won by May who beat Woosley, who was carrying an injury towards the end of the game, in a tight match that ended 7/15, 15/8, 15/11. The plate handicap competition was won by Gary Raymond, who beat Dave Lawrence 15/8, 15/6, 15/8.
